Course description

Visual Studio 2010 adds a large set of new functionality for the Visual Studio developer. From new language features, including dynamic language support to full support and tooling for developing Silverlight applications, Visual Studio 2010, and the .NET Framework 4.0, make it easier than ever to create robust, enterprise-level applications. This course introduces the most important new features in Visual Studio 2010 for experienced Visual Studio developers.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


This course assumes that students have some programming background and experience using Visual Studio 2008. Because this course focuses solely on new features in Visual Studio 2010, its content will best be appreciated by developers who are fluent using Visual Studio 2008, and simply want to discover the new features added in Visual Studio 2010. The course assumes knowledge of a CLS language (Visual Basic or Visual C#), of the .NET Framework 3.5, and Visual Studio 2010.
