Developing Windows Applications with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Training Course
In this course, experienced developers who know the basics of Windows Forms development gain more advanced Windows Client design and development skills. WinForms and WPF programming models, as well as relative strengths and when to use each technology, are covered.
Course 10262: Developing Windows Applications with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 is planned for Technology Specialists in the area of Windows Client Development who work in a development environment that uses Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2010 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 to create rich client applications for Windows.
Module 1: Windows Client Application Design
The goal of this module is to ensure that students understand how varying business requirements influence the design decisions when planning a Windows Client application. Students will learn how design requirements, specifications, and business goals affect the choice between WPF and Windows Forms when updating (or planning a new) Windows Client application.
Module 2: Introduction to Visual Studio 2010 and WPF Version 4
The goal of this module is to introduce students to the new features that Visual Studio 2010 and WPF version 4 provide
Module 3: Designing and Developing a User Interface
The goal of this module is to teach the student how to design and build a UI that provides the expected end-user experience and UI functionality, and retains that experience/functionality in various end-user environments, as well as when the application window resizes.
Module 4: Taking Control of the User Interface
The goal of this module is to enable students to create a consistent and manageable user interface.
Module 5: Testing, Unit Testing, and Debugging
The goal of this module is to help students to develop good habits in regard to testing as well as enabling students to debug their applications. Students will also learn about advanced exception handling pertaining directly to Windows Client application scenarios
Module 6: Simple Data Binding and Validation
The goal of this module is to teach the student how to implement simple data binding and data validation in order to manage data in a data source (CRUD). In addition to learning how to bind a value to a UI element, the student should learn best practices concerning when to use the various implementations of data binding and how to connect to a data source with LINQ.
Module 7: Data Binding to Collections
The goal of this module is to enable the student to implement more advanced data binding scenarios, picking up where the previous module on data binding left off. The student will learn how to bind to ListView, GridView, DataGrid, and other collection classes.
Module 8: Enhancing UI Responsiveness
The goal of this module is to teach the students how coding techniques can be used to improve the responsiveness of their applications.
Module 9: Integrating Localization and User Assistance Features
The goal of this module is to teach students how to implement localization, user assistance, and accessibility features within an application.
Module 10: WPF 2D Graphics, Multimedia, and Printing
The goal of this module is to teach the students the basics of graphics in WPF. The module will also provide an overview of multimedia (audio and video).
Module 11: Control Customization
The goal of this module is to teach students how to customize controls and introduce students to custom controls.
Module 12: Attached Properties and Behaviors in WPF
The goal of this module is to teach the students how to implement application behaviors based on user actions or application events by using attached properties and Expression Blend behaviors.
Module 13: Animations in WPF
The goal of this module is to teach the student how to implement animations and to teach students how to develop data visualization within their applications in a manner that enables the application user to drill down into data visually. Students should also learn when animations should be used and why.
Module 14: Application State, Settings, and Lifecycle
The goal of this module is to teach students how to manage application state and settings throughout the application lifecycle.
Module 15: Configure and Deploy Windows Client Applications
The goal of this module is to teach students how to deploy their applications using the various methods supported by Visual Studio 2010.
