About Windows Development and Administration

This course further explores Microsoft’s .NET framework, this time in the context of Windows systems programming and administration. Students continue to expand their practical knowledge of .NET and are introduced to PowerShell, Microsoft’s command and scripting language which is analogous to Linux’s Bash command language. Topics explored include object lifetime, reflection, dynamic language runtime, CIL, dynamic assemblies, multithreaded programming, object serialization, ADO.NET, the Entity framework, Windows Communication Foundation, and PowerShell. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to understand how to use the power of the .NET framework and PowerShell for providing comprehensive system solutions in a Windows environment.


Students must have completed ASD215 with a satisfactory grade.
