The Institute for Professional Development

.Net Web Developer

.NET is Microsoft’s most ambitious and its most complex, comprehensive and inclusive technology initiative. It recognizes that the Internet and its standards will play a dominant role in the software development of the future. It also reflects the fact that object-oriented programming has become the norm. Instead of relying solely on Visual Basic®, the Visual Studio development environment gives the user the choice of using C#, Visual Basic or any of the many languages supported by .NET, including COBOL, Perl, Python® and even Java™. There is no question that .NET is a formidable response to the challenge of Java and Sun™’s J2EE™ initiative.

The goal of the.NET Web Developer Program is to give the programmer an excellent understanding of the entire sweep of the .NET initiative, the tools and knowledge to develop a wide range of .NET applications with special emphasis on Web applications, and also knowledge of likely future directions. The principal language that will be used in the program is C#.
