The Microsoft Visual Studio Express Editions Beginning Developer Learning Centre is my new find.
There is two parts to this, the Web Development, and Windows Development. The one I am focussed on today is the Windows Development.
Windows DevelopmentThere are Five lessons in the Bits and Bytes section:
Would you like to customize your desktop with cool utilities or build fun Windows applications and PC games? Then you should explore this Development Track
- Bits & Bytes: Lesson 1 Problem Solving in Life and Technology
Introduction to Programming Concepts – Understanding problem solving patterns and strategies is the first step to computer program design and development.
- Bits & Bytes: Lesson 2 Things, Things, and More Things
Introduction to Programming Concepts – How do we represent the complexity of real-world situations to a computer? This lesson will introduce the idea of Object Oriented Design.
- Bits & Bytes: Lesson 3 The Data Game
Introduction to Programming Concepts – This lesson will explore how computers process and store data.
- Bits & Bytes: Lesson 4 Computer IQ
Introduction to Programming Concepts – How do computers "think" and make decisions? This lesson will answer this question and see just how "smart" computers actually are.
- Bits & Bytes: Lesson 5 Life before Mice
Introduction to Programming Concepts – This lesson explores human-computer interaction and the concept of graphical user interfaces (GUI). You'll learn some best practices for designing GUI applications.
So I will have the bits and bytes series as well as the Microsoft Curriculum on Digital Literacy that I found the other day, or would it be better on the managed network, so it can be allocated to various rooms.
