(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] My name is David Gassner, and this is Visual Basic Essential Training. After installing Visual Studio Express for Windows Desktop I'll show you how to create a variety of Visual Basic projects using both Windows forms and Windows presentation foundation. Then I'll look at the language's fundamental building blocks, including variables and data types, focusing first on elementary data types, such as numbers, strings, and dates. I'll then show you how to package reusable code in functions and subroutines.
The last part of the course describes the object oriented nature of Visual Basic, and shows you how to make custom classes that have instance fields, properties, and shared members. Visual Basic can be used to create all sorts of applications from web, desktop, and portable devices. I hope that this course helps you get started building your applications from Microsoft development platforms.
