Visual Basic Programming
This course is a prototype under development for the GITC. It is designed for graduating second year students seeking employment in organizations following Microsoft programming practices and standards. Currently, the GITC is using an alternative course.
Students should complete courses in C++ or Java programming, database systems, networking, and operating systems.
By the end of this course, students should be able to complete the following programming tasks using the Visual Basic Express Edition development environment:
The course consists of twenty-four hours of lecture and forty hours of lab time in total. The class is held on four consecutive days per week. The first three days include two hours for lecture and two hours for lab. The fourth day of four hours is devoted entirely to lab.
Build a Visual Basic form that inserts, selects, and updates records from an address book table. Use ADO to connect with the table stored in MySql. Retrieve a result set. Link controls to data sources in the result set. Manipulate the result set based on interface commands.
Visual Basic Express Edition
Download the ISO image for VBEE and burn a CD for trouble-free installation of the development environment. This course does NOT use the optional MSDN and Sql Server extensions.
MySql Community Edition
Visit the MySql download page to download community edition versions (GPL license) of MySql, Connector/Net, and Connector/ODBC. Optionally download the GUI Tools for ease of administration.
