Commercial Web Application Development Certificate

With our Commercial Web Application Development Certificate, acquire the knowledge and skills you need to build web applications that can be easily deployed. Consider the difference between desktop programming and web programming. Learn to use .NET assemblies, the C# (C-sharp) programming language and the integrated development environment of Visual Studio. Focus on data validation, and learn to configure custom errors pages that provide the user with meaningful information when exceptions occur. Develop the ability to manage session state and postback events and to use web services to capture and retrieve data from .NET and SQL databases. Although this certificate has been designed for those entering the web programming field, it would also be valuable for graphic designers wishing to broaden their web design skills.
