The VB Script course is designed for those who develop projects or small applications in scripting languages, and would like to work with the built-in scripting language of Microsoft operating systems. The course will allow beginners and intermediate programmers to gain knowledge of the language and to use it in their working environment for administering systems, or interacting with other programs, including databases and MS Word.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
New comers should be able to pick up this language, but if you have had experience with another scripting language then you will find this course a useful jump between languages.
The course work is based around a 50/50 approach to lecture and hands on giving the attendee the chance to really work with the language and see its potential. The practical work is based around real life scenarios as much as possible and is intended to make the delegate feel more at easy with working with the language and boost their confidence about working it. It will also give you lots of example code to use in existing projects.
None, although if you have done any programming with a structured language, or another scripting language before you will be at an advantage.
