Duration Duration

35 hours (usually 5 days including breaks)

Requirements Requirements

Before attending this workshop, students must have:

  • An understanding of the basics of structured programming, including concepts such as flow control, variables and parameters, and function calls.
  • At least 3 months experience developing applications in either a graphical or non-graphical environment, or equivalent knowledge.

Overview Overview


This course will enable delegates to develop Windows applications using Visual Studio 2005. This includes creating customised forms and controls. It will also cover the C# programming language, using the principles of object orientated programming. Delegates will be able to access data from a database and update this from a Windows form.


This workshop is intended for software developers who have a desire to learn more about specific technology areas in Windows application development.
