ADO.NET Using C# (VS 2015)

Request more details:

Description:
This three-day intensive course teaches the essential elements of ADO.NET such that at the end of the course the programmer is able to utilize its tremendous database manipulation powers to build effective database applications. The course includes a major case study demonstrating the use of ADO.NET in a realistic setting. It is current to .NET 4.6, Visual Studio 2015 and SQL Server 2014. <br> There are numerous example program implemented in a multiple-tier architecture, with separate tiers for data access and user interface. The course uses the LocalDB version of SQL Server 2014 Express, which is recommended by Microsoft for developers. An appendix discusses moving from LocalDB to SQL Server.
Prerequisites:
A basic knowledge of SQL and of programming the .NET Framework using C#. Participants should also understand the fundamentals of XML. To get full benefit from the examples in the course the student should be able to write simple Windows Forms applications. A working knowledge of SQL Server is also desirable.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
· Understand the architecture and main classes of ADO.NET
· Gain fluency in programming ADO.NET using C#
· Gain a thorough understanding of the use of disconnected DataSets for building highly scalable applications
· Acquire a working knowledge of the tight coupling of XML with ADO.NET
· Learn how to use additional features in ADO.NET, including asynchronous operations, multiple active result sets, and bulk copy
· Acquire a working knowledge of LINQ and the Entity Framework
· Implement a realistic case study that ties together many concepts of ADO.NET in a practical demonstration
