# An understanding of the problem-solving techniques that apply to software development # An understanding of the following principles of software development: Modern software development models; Typical phases of a software development lifecycle; Concepts of event-driven programming; Concepts of object-oriented programming; Creating use-case diagrams; Designing and building a user interface; Developing a structured application # A basic understanding of the following scripting techniques: Web scripting techniques; Macro scripting techniques; Windows scripting techniques # Hands-on experience creating and implementing script code # A fundamental understanding of the .NET Framework - specifically, the purpose, function, and features of following .NET Framework components: The Common Language Runtime; The .NET Framework class library # A conceptual understanding of the following .NET Framework topics: Common Type System - identifies the types supported by the common language runtime; Metadata and Self-Describing Components - the .NET Framework simplifies component interoperation by allowing compilers to emit additional declarative information, or metadata, into all modules and assemblies; Cross-Language Interoperability - managed objects created in different programming languages can interact with one another; Assemblies in the Common Language Runtime - the concept of assemblies, which are collections of types and resources that form logical units of functionality (assemblies are the fundamental units of deployment, version control, reuse, activation scoping, and security permissions); Application Domains - application domains provide isolation between applications; Runtime Hosts - the runtime hosts supported by the .NET Framework, including ASP.NET, Internet Explorer, and shell executables # A basic understanding of the Visual Studio IDE (Integrated Development Environment) # Hands-on experience using a version of Visual Studio .NET to achieve the following: Declaring and initializing typed variables using the Camel case naming convention; Using arithmetic, relational, and logical operators in code statements; Using branching statements to control code execution; Using looping statements to iterate through collections or repeat steps until a specified condition is met; Identifying syntax and logic errors; Accessing and managing data from a data source # To help you prepare for this class, review the following resources: Visual Studio 2005 Class Designer; Default Project Templates in Visual Studio; Web Application Projects Overview; Value Types in the Common Type System; Type Fundamentals; System.Collections.Generic Namespace; IConvertible Interface; XML Documentation Comments (C# Programming Guide)
