Microsoft has made it as easy as they can for you to learn .NET by giving away a really great Visual Studio based development system absolutely free: Visual Basic .NET 2010 Express Edition. Really. It's actually free. VB.NET 2010 Express is really a free version of Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft's premier development environment. --------Click Here to display the illustration -------- Because VB.NET Express is a version of Visual Studio, just about any book about Visual Studio will also apply to VB.NET Express to some degree, so use your Visual Studio books if you have them and if they apply to Visual Basic. This course is also a living document. The current contents of the tutorial are as follows: Part 1 - A "From the Ground Up" Tutorial - An introduction to the course. Part 2 - Visual Basic Fundamentals - The basics of the VB Language and How To Find More Information. Part 8 - Using XML - Introduces the use of XML in VB.NET.

Visual Basic Training The fundamentals of Web applications are reviewed, and a testbed is established for ASP.NET and Internet Information Services. The architecture of ASP.NET is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class, and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, view state, life cycle, and the event model. Visual Studio 2010 is used to greatly simplify the development of ASP.NET Web applications, including facilitating UI design. Additional server controls are introduced, including menus and master pages. The final section of the course introduces rich client-side development with ASP.NET AJAX and use of the ASP.NET MVC framework. See Full Outline

vbrad.com - .NET/ASP.NET/COM/VB.NET/C# information/components Data Visualization App Using GAE Python, D3.js and Google BigQuery: Part 3 - Tuts+ Code Tutorial In the previous part of this tutorial, we saw how to get started with D3.js, and created dynamic scales and axes for our visualization graph using a sample dataset. In this part of the tutorial, we'll plot the graph using the sample dataset. To get started, clone the previous tutorial source code from GitHub. Navigate to the Google App Engine (GAE) SDK directory and start the server. Point your browser to and you should be able to see the X and Y axes that we created in the previous tutorial. Before getting started, create a new template called displayChart_3.html which will be the same as displayChart.html. From our sample dataset, we have a number of count to be plotted across a set of corresponding year. We'll represent each of the data points as circles in our visualization graph. First, we'll use d3.selectAll to select circles inside the visualization element. Next, we'll bind our dataset to the circles selection. Save changes and refresh your page.
Karl E. Peterson's Classic VB Code Modern Tools for Advanced CSS Development Web development has taken a turn towards more candid and fluid information. More people are willing to release free open source code just to help the community and other developers working on similar projects. But aside from free code samples there are dozens of handy webapps, resources, tools, and programs built to enhance the frontend dev experience. In this article I’d like to share the most helpful web-based tools for CSS development. Reference Guides Online guides can refer to a select number of resources. Aside from large images there are also real websites designed as CSS reference guides. More useful guides: 40 CSS Apps, Tools, and Resources One of the most well-renowned references would be the Mozilla Developer Network. Browsing through that list could take a while since it’s a big reference guide. Code Generators Many free code generators have sprung up since the advent of CSS gradients, box shadows, and rounded corners. One example of a code generator is CSS3.me. CSS Grids
New approach to learning uses ‘interconnected nodes’ of information iPad is used to review learning nodes in new education program (credit: Wake Forest University) Students can access dozens of pieces of information, including text, videos, quizzes, interviews with experts, and supplemental information to ensure better understanding and engagement, in a new program that has been developed by educational researchers at Wake Forest University. The researchers found that switching from rigid, linear (and unread) textbooks to technology such as iPads alone won’t boost student performance. The team created an ever-evolving learning space customizable for a variety of students using iPad apps. • Basic text is reinforced with multimedia: a video showing how the cells split; an interview with a molecular biologist who talks about how mitosis goes astray in cancer; images of the cells. • Embedded quizzes assess comprehension of the topic and a student’s ability to use that knowledge. • Students can ask for help by posting questions to peers or to the teacher.
Learning: No longer a textbook case Wake Forest biology professor Dan Johnson reviews learning nodes on an iPad with student Rebecca Perry. Switching from rigid, linear textbooks to technology such as iPads alone won’t boost student performance – so a team of Wake Forest researchers has turned the classroom upside down, allowing students to tailor each course to their own learning style. This project, supported by extensive research and emerging technology, puts the power of learning into the hands of students and snatches traditional textbooks right out of their backpacks. “Students don’t read textbooks – study after study has shown that,” said Dan Johnson, a senior lecturer in biology. This new way of teaching works for a variety of different learning styles. This is a digital tool – but don’t call it an e-textbook. “Take the example of how mitosis works,” Johnson said. Under this new system, students have access to 40-50 “learning nodes” that let them explore mitosis from different directions.
Get your Advanced Java Programming Degree with these Tutorials and Courses Getting started as a Java developer these days is quite straightforward. There are countless books on the subject, and of course an abundance of online material to study. Of course, our own site offers a vast array of tutorials and articles to guide you through the language and we genuinely believe that Java Code Geeks offer the best way to learn Java programming. Things get a bit trickier once you have successfully passed the beginner phase. For this reason, we have created and featured numerous tutorials on our site. Additionally, we have created several “Ultimate” tutorials, discussing OOP concepts, popular Java tools and frameworks, and more. On top of the above, to get you prepared for your programming interviews, we have created some great QnA guides: For even more high-end training, we would like to suggest our JCG Academy courses. All courses could be beneficial to the modern age developer, but let’s focus on the Java related ones.
Some Of The Best UX And UI Tools And Resources That You Can Use The tools you are using today may not be ideally suited for the next web or app design project you take on. Newer tools are constantly being introduced on the market and have the potential to make your work easier and faster, as well as more professional in appearance. As you browse through this list, you will find good tools and resources that focus on rapid prototyping, powerful project team collaboration functionality, or on usability testing of your design or the finished product. If you do not see anything you might consider using at this time, keep in touch. There is more to come. Proto.io Proto.io takes prototyping to the next level. Moreover, multiple touch and mouse events can be applied to any one of the UI elements in order to create prototypes making static mockups and hotspot prototypes obsolete.

Build Your Information System For Free Using These Tools Introduction Information system is a very essential and fundamental component in every business and organization. Generally, it is a set of network of hardware and software which users use to collect, manage, create and distribute their data. It consists on the information and communication technology utilized by organizations for supporting their business processes. But what do you think if you can build your information system for free? SeaFile The first tool to be described in our article is Seafile, it is a free and open source cloud storage system. Furthermore, Seafile allows you to work with different users chosen by yourself and members in the same group made by you of course. The libraries also made where your files and folders are saved can be shared with your teamwork. If you haven’t installed Seafile yet, check the following article Create A Secure Cloud Storage Using Seafile In Ubuntu 14.10 Want to deploy Seafile on RPM based distribution, then check this link.
