ITS 148: Visual Studio.NET I

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.

Students are required to use Microsoft Office and have a basic familiarity with the Internet.

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 General 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.

This course contributes to the Certificate of Competence in Programming.
