ICT 713 - Building Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET and C#
This course provides students with the essential skills to build web applications using modern development technologies and practices.
Web applications and services are critical technologies in any organization. These applications and services are usually connected to a database and enable organizations with webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis and many other functions.
Using Microsoft .NET technology, C# programming language and Visual Studio IDE, this course covers several ASP.NET technologies to create server-side applications.
This course starts with an overview of ASP.NET Web Form applications, debug and deploy server-side applications, to use web server controls, validate data, write handlers that respond to page and control events, preserve state, redirect or transfer between web pages, and provide a cohesive look of multiple web pages using master pages and themes.
Then focus shifts to ASP.NET Core, exploring creating Razor pages and moving to Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. Students design and create controllers, views, and models for ASP.Net Core MVC application that retrieves and manipulates data using Entity Framework Core.
User Experience (UX), accessibility standards, and security concerns are also discussed.
