Introduction to .NET Training Overview

During the summer of 2000, at the Professional Developers Conference, the Microsoft Corporation announced its vision of the next generation of Windows services- .NET (pronounced "dot-net"). Since that time, many steps have been taken to ensure that .NET becomes a reality. The paradigm has been refined with each release of the .NET Framework, with the public releases of the Visual Studio.NET beta software, and with the final release of both.

The key to understanding .NET and how it may impact your life is to recognize the technical innovations that make it both powerful and unique. This course is the first in a series of .NET-related courses. It will provide you with the basic concepts required to decode the terminology and features of .NET, and will serve as the foundation for the other .NET courseware.

What You'll Learn in this Class:

  • Identify the five main components of the .NET Framework
  • Explain how each functions as part of the whole
  • Identify the major components of the CLR
  • Explain how each supports the overall function of the CLR
  • Identify the advantages of using the .NET Framework CLR
  • Describe the advantages of working with members of the .NET Class Framework
  • Characterize deployment within .NET, and show how .NET deployment eliminates DLL Hell.
  • Examine the features of the new integrated IDE
