MCSD: App Builder

Description

This 7-day boot camp provides an introduction to HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. This course helps students gain basic HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript programming skills. This course is an entry point into both the Web application and Windows Store apps training paths. The course focuses on using HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript to implement programming logic, define and use variables, perform looping and branching, develop user interfaces, capture and validate user input, store data, and create well-structured applications.

The lab scenarios in this course are selected to support and demonstrate the structure of various application scenarios. They are intended to focus on the principals and coding components/structures that are used to establish an HTML5 software application.

In this course, students will learn to develop advanced ASP.NET MVC applications using .NET Framework 4.5 tools and technologies. The focus will be on coding activities that enhance the performance and scalability of the Web site application. ASP.NET MVC will be introduced and compared with Web Forms so that students know when each should/could be used. This course will also prepare the student for exam 70-486.

In this course, students will learn how to design and develop services that access local and remote data from various data sources. Students will also learn how to develop and deploy services to hybrid environments, including on-premises servers and Windows Azure.

 

The Academy's MCSD Web Applications Boot Camp is a combination of the following official Microsoft courses:

  • Explain how to use Visual Studio 2012 to create and run a Web application.
  • Describe the new features of HTML5, and create and style HTML5 pages.

  • Create Views in an MVC application that display and edit data and interact with Models and Controllers.
  • Run unit tests and debugging tools against a web application in Visual Studio 2012 and configure an application for troubleshooting.
  • Develop a web application that uses the ASP.NET routing engine to present friendly URLs and a logical navigation hierarchy to users.
  • Implement a consistent look and feel, including corporate branding, across an entire MVC web application.
  • Use partial page updates and caching to reduce the network bandwidth used by an application and accelerate responses to user requests.
  • Write JavaScript code that runs on the client-side and utilizes the jQuery script library to optimize the responsiveness of an MVC web application.
