ITS 148 Visual Studio.NET Programming I (3)

3 hours lecture per week

Prerequisite(s): ITS 128 or consent of Business, Legal, and Technology department chairperson, program coordinator, or instructor.

Recommended Preparation: Keyboarding experience; credit for ICS 101.  Students are required to use Microsoft Office and have a basic familiarity with the Internet.  Students need to be able to access course related technologies outside their classroom, including Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.  Students enrolled in ITS 148 will be able to obtain this software at no additional cost through the Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance (MSDNAA).
Comment: ITS 148 – Visual Studio.NET Programming I was formerly known as ITS 118 – Visual Basic for Business Applications.

Information Technology majors must take all ITS courses for a grade.  The Kapi’olani CC course catalog states, “In place of a grade, credit/no credit (CR/NC) is an option provided the course is not part of the general education and major requirements”.  An ITS major cannot use a “grade” of CR for ITS 148 to fulfill the degree requirements of the AS in Information Technology, but other students may elect the CR/NC or audit grading options.

ITS 148 is an introductory course in using the Visual Studio.NET Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to provide viable computing solutions in a business environment.  It is assumed that the student is familiar with computer programming.  Applications with forms, controls, and code are developed in Visual Studio.NET, using one of its programming languages deemed most appropriate for the course.  Computer applications are executed, debugged and undergo tests of their validity.  Introductory object oriented programming concepts are emphasized and realized through the creation of user defined classes and their properties and methods.  Data validation and general procedure development are also components of this course.

Aloha, I’m Michael Paulding. I’m an IT instructor here at Kapi`olani Community College. This is ITS 148, Visual Basic I. In this course, it is a continuation as part of a cohort after ITS 128, you take ITS 148 where we start getting into more advanced coding. We start doing functions, we start doing procedures, we start repeating code and getting into the intricacies of it. The programs that you make are more robust and it starts to look like real world software. It’s a very interesting course. This is where you learn the guts and gears of programming. So welcome to the course!
