Develop Web-based databases using ASP.NET and SQL Server

If you've ever wanted to make the jump from MS-Access to powerful Web-based databases, now is your chance!

This class is the first of a low-cost summer series of hands-on classes for learning how to develop Web-based databases using ASP.NET and SQL Server from the ground up.

The first 3 classes will be on Tuesday evenings, 6-7:30pm 7/1, 7/15 and 7/29 at Robert Half Consulting (the same room that the Microsoft Access/SQL Server Users' Group meets) and costs $75 per person per class.  To get the maximum results, start with the first one and join us every two weeks as we show how to convert Microsoft Access's Northwind database into a web-based database using ASP.NET 4.5 with Visual Basic and SQL Server 2012, and Visual Studio 2013.

This is a hands-on class during which the two instructors, Dan Stern and Ralph Davies, alternate between demonstrating examples and giving examples to practice with on your own machine while we assist you.

Prerequisites: advanced knowledge of MS-Access including designing forms that utilize VBA.

Focus: Building database-driven web sites using ASP.NET/VB and SQL Server.

After the first 3 classes, you will know how to build a simple web-based database application with a user-friendly data entry/editing form.

More topics (for example, additional Ajax controls, subforms, and emailing programmatically) will be covered on a bi-weekly basis after the first 3 classes if there is sufficient interest.

To prepare:  bring a Windows laptop machine with:

-- Visual Studio 2013 Professional (the free 90 day trial is at http://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs )

-- SQL Server 2008, 2012, or 2014 (either the express of full version).

-- Microsoft Access 2010

Also please bring a check for $75.00 made out to "Dan Stern Data Systems", or cash, for each class. 

See http://www.msaccesstoweb.com/ for examples of some of the features we will cover during the lessons.

See you there!

    Hi. I hope all the required new software installs will work out. If not I'll just have to watch and take notes. Any thots on that concern?

      We'll have handouts and files that you can take home with you for when your software is installed in case you run into trouble before class.

      Hi Dave, Professional is what we're using, but Premium or Ultimate will be OK too.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
