ITS 228 – Visual Studio.NET Programming II (3)

3 hours lecture per week

Prerequisite(s):  ITS 148 or consent of the Business, Legal, and Technology department chairperson, program coordinator, or instructor.

Comment: ITS 228 – Visual Studio.NET Programming II was formerly known as ITS 151 – Applied Database Programming Using Visual Basic.

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 228 to fulfill the degree requirements of the AS in Information Technology, but other students may elect the CR/NC or audit grading options.

ITS 228 is an advanced-intermediate 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 Visual Studio.NET.  Enhanced user interfaces, especially those used in multi-form applications are covered. Also included in this course are the development and processing of XML documents.  Object oriented programming concepts regarding inheritance are emphasized and realized through the creation of user defined derived classes that overload and override base classes.  Database application development is also a component of this course.

My name is Michael Paulding I’m an IT instructor here at Kapi`olani Community College. This is ITS 228 which is Visual Basic II. In this class, what we do is all the previous work we’ve done in 128 and 148 starts to culminate into a database application where we’re connecting windows software to databases and both sequel server and Microsoft access and we’re building software on top of them. So a lot of students they take their projects, they employ them at their workplace, they do things for nonprofits, we can do a little bit of service learning in this class and at the end you have a robust windows application running on top of a database. So thank you for viewing hope to see you in ITS 228.
