Subject Title
Visual Basic

Subject Description
Visual Basic (VB), introduced by Microsoft in 1991, changed the way Windows applications were developed on the personal computer. VB was the first of the Rapid Application Development tools, and continues to evolve with each release of the .NET Framework. This subject teaches how VB can be used to create desktop applications and data-driven web sites that use Microsoft and various Open Source libraries. VB is used to create reusable unit-tested object-oriented libraries that integrate with C# code, and to make consistent, high quality, user friendly interfaces.

Students will also perform inquiry and research into how VB is useful in implementing the latest web-based and other business trends, and in integrating with other tools, products, and methodologies within the Microsoft technology stack.
