Application Development Workshop Offered for Software Engineers

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is offering a workshop for software engineers who want to learn how to use electronic network technology to increase efficiency and connectivity within their companies.

The five-day class, "Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and Object-Oriented Programming" will be held all day Monday through Friday, July 12-16, on the UW-River Falls campus.

The workshop will cover the .NET framework and use of modern software development tools and concepts including object-oriented programming, managed execution, Console, graphic-user interface, and Web and database applications. Those attending the class will leave with the skills needed to develop multi-tier applications with Windows and Wed-based front ends.

"Developers who receive this training will be able to greatly expand their knowledge and skills for effectively creating powerful applications that span many platforms," said Professor Hossein Najafi, instructor for the class and a faculty member in the Computer Science and Information Systems Department of the College of Business and Economics.

This technology is being applied among a growing number of businesses to facilitate e-commerce, business intelligence operations, customer relationship management, and enterprise resource planning, he added. Workshop participants will receive personalized training in small groups, hands-on practice in a fully equipped computer lab, and 2.8 continuing education units (CEUs) to be applied toward professional certification requirements.

The workshop fee includes comprehensive training manual, lunch, and an opportunity to network with the college faculty and administrators on the last day. Participants who register by June 16 or with a colleague will save $200 or $300 off the registration fee.
