.NET for VFP Developers Training
helps Visual FoxPro developers leverage what they know about VFP in
learning .NET. This includes understanding the languages, tools,
object-orientation, as well as best software development practices.
This live, online
training class is taught by Kevin McNeish, the author of the book
.NET for Visual FoxPro Developers, a
Microsoft .NET MVP for the past seven years, and an INETA speaker.
updated class covers the latest .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010
Each session is 5 hours long and there is 1 session per day for 3 days.
The regular cost for the class is $599 or just $499 if you take
advantage of our early-bird specials!
Quotes from Students
Thank you for an outstanding three days. I was looking
for "full immersion" to jump start my involvement with .NET, and this
training session delivered. The recordings will be particularly valuable
as a way to go back and spend some real hands-on time in .NET to
reinforce what we learned during the live sessions.

C# and VB .NET Primeran>
ThisThis session teaches the basics of C# and VB .NET and can help
you choose the development language that is right for your team.
Includes information on basic syntax, namespaces, defining
classes, strong typing, enumerations, arrays, collections, generics, and type
Object Orientation in .NET

shows how to leverage what you already know about OOP in Visual
FoxPro. It includes information on best practices and real-world
examples on the use of inheritance, polymorphism, static and
instance members, overloaded methods, abstract classes, and
interfaces. It also discusses some of the
features for C# and VB .NET.
DataData access in .NET

as well as the Language Integrated Query technology (LINQ)
and Microsoft Entity Framework.
Working with Business Objects
One of the biggest mistakes new .NET developers make is to put the majority of
their application logic in the user interface. This session highlights the
importance of using business objects for creating a single code base for Windows
and Web applications, normalizing your application logic, and providing flexible
CreaCreating Windows Applications with Windows

How it works
live training class is broadcast
directly to your company using Citrix's www.gotomeeting.com.
All you need is a computer with a high speed internet connection and a
phone. During each training session you simply connect to the training
seminar via the internet and you see the trainer's computer in a window on
your machine. If multiple students at your company want to take the class
(Note: Each participant must pay for the class) you can simply hook up a
projector to your computer so everyone in the room can see. As the trainer
steps through presentations and uses Visual Studio to create and
execute code samples you see it all as it is happening.
For audio hookup, you call into the specified phone number and join a conference
call where you can hear the trainer and vice versa, or you can use VoIP and
connect with a headset and microphone. To minimize disruptions,
you can post questions in a chat window for the instructor to answer.
You save the
usual costs of airfare, hotel, food, and rental car to attend a class
tied up all day in training

NoteNote that if you have multiple students taking the training, each
student must pay for the class. In addition to the class registration fee,
the number you call for audio hookup is a toll number, so you will be
charged on your phone bill at the regular rate of your long distance
provider. If you use Voice-Over-IP or if you have free unlimited long distance calls, then the call is
