Learn to program using .NET Framework with focus on desktop and console applications. Use decision structures, loops, and arrays to solve problems. Apply exception handling and data validation to programs. Use the predefined libraries in .NET Framework to solve problems. Create methods and learn to pass and return arguments. Create classes and use the classes as objects in programming. Use databases to store and retrieve the data from the applications.
Construct a foundation of procedural programming concepts and skills requisite for professional object-oriented software development. Use Java, a modern-structured, object-oriented language, to develop your problem-solving and algorithm formulation skills.
Delve into the fundamental concepts, terminologies, methodologies, and system organizations of database management systems. Develop the theoretical foundation of understanding necessary to design, implement, optimize, query and maintain a database system. Propose, design and develop a database, using a relational database management system to reinforce the theoretical concepts.
Explore methodologies and technologies used in analyzing, designing and developing object-oriented software systems intended to solve real-world problems. Build on the Systems Development Life Cycle model initially presented in the CPW 101 course to model and design systems using tools such as CRC cards and the Unified Modeling Language, which includes class, use case, and sequence diagrams. Discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of object orientation.
Learn advanced .NET programming — writing classes, working with indexers, overloading operators, and other advanced object-oriented concepts. Work with databases using ADO.NET, databinding, and object-relational mappers. Learn techniques for working non-relational data storage.
Earn professional experience in analyzing, designing, and developing dynamic, data-driven, commercial web applications using Microsoft ASP.NET. Gain a solid foundation in web development covering topics from state management, security, using various data stores, working with forms, and more.
Build a portfolio website showcasing skills developed in the Computer Programming and Web Development program. Create a fully functional website from start to finish. Analyze and derive requirements by creating a project proposal or by working with an actual client. Larger projects will utilize source control and emphasize team work.
Deals with learning programming using C++ as the primary language with a focus on problem-solving and introduction to object-oriented concepts and terms.
