Visual Basic 6 Primer
Book Now - 1 Delivery Method Available:Scheduled Online Onsite
Microsoft Visual Basic is a powerful and popular programming tool for Windows application development. For programmers accustomed to more traditional languages, the event-driven style of Visual Basic may be unfamiliar. For those new to application development, Visual Basic is an ideal first programming language.
We recommend this course as an introduction to Visual Basic for developers, who do not have experience of programming in a Windows environment, and that is followed up by the four-day Application Development using Visual Basic course. Development managers may also find the Primer course a useful insight into the fundamentals of Visual Basic. Delegates with little previous programming background are not recommended to attend both courses in the same week, but are instead advised to consolidate their knowledge with practical work before proceeding.
The course is made up of a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions. Delegates will use Visual Basic to build a small application in four stages. Each stage uses concepts and material covered in the four technical chapters.
