Welcome! This course examines some of the issues programmers must deal with when constructing an information-intensive, visually oriented, multimedia business application. To apply the principles of good user interface design, you will build a semester project using a visual-programming tool called Microsoft Visual Basic.NET 2010, Professional Edition. Required prerequisites include 4610. Because of the multimedia requirements, you should have completed, or be co-registered for, BCIS 3615. There are no teams or team projects in BCIS 4650.
REQUIRED TEXTBOOK and OTHER MATERIALS:
Boehm, Anne. Murach’s Visual Basic
2008. Murach (2008), pb, ISBN: 978-1-890774-45-5
(B). To be determined
At least one key drive (I would suggest a capacity of 256 MB).
A 3-ring binder, 1.5 to 2 inches thick (bigger are just a waste of your money), with a set of blank tabs and a set of alphabetic tabs.
