Description: This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create dynamic web applications using ASP.NET MVC and VB.NET. Students should already have a working knowledge of VB.NET.

This course teaches students how to leverage the power of the Model-View-Controller design pattern with the ASP.NET MVC Framework to separate the layers of a web application. Students will use the ASPX and Razor view engines to design a user interface. Students will learn how to build models to manage an application's data layer using both the Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL. Students will also learn how to build controllers containing action methods to manage communication between views and models.

Other topics include data scaffolding; URL routing; implementing security; using MVC and Web Forms in the same application, unit testing; and deploying ASP.NET MVC applications. Comprehensive labs provide the students with experience creating, debugging, testing and deploying dynamic ASP.NET MVC applications.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of fundamental HTML syntax is helpful, but not required. Prior experience with VB.NET is required.
