Back to Basics
Have you ever wanted some software for your computer but either can’t find what you are looking for or found existing software does not do what you want it to? If so, then read on. It is never too late to learn how to develop your own software. Microsoft’s .NET platform is widely used in information technology because Windows products account for a major share of home and office computer systems on the Internet. The technology behind .NET allows programmers to create software programs or applications that utilise the wide spectrum of information technology resources used every day by people around the world.
The .NET Framework simplifies Windows software development and it is easy to deploy and maintain. It provides developers with a single approach to building both desktop and Web-based applications. Applications can be designed to automatically upgrade and conflicts between applications can be minimised enabling incompatible software components to coexist.
A newly revised course by ACS Distance Education is now available for anyone wishing to learn Visual Basic.NET so as to produce their own Windows applications. All you need is access to a computer with either Visual Studio.NET or Visual Basic.NET installed. Software can be purchased from the school at heavily discounted prices.
