The course Visual Basic - Working with Classes, Scope and Namespaces introduces you to features of the Visual Basic programming language in order for you to create a more advanced application for the end user. You will learn about classes and methods, the difference between them, and their functions. You will also learn about adding new classes and creating an instance of a class.

This course teaches you about working with the .NET framework class library which is an important asset of the Visual Basic program. You will learn to add a reference to a class defined in the .NET framework class library.

This course will then inform you about the uses of scopes and modifiers and how they can affect the outcome of your code. You will become familiar with namespaces, learn how to work with arguments, and create and add references to assemblies.

This course is video-based which will allow you work alongside the teacher in order for you to see first-hand how to write the code for your application. This video-based course will allow you to pause and rewind the video allowing you to learn the content at your own pace. This course is suitable for those with a basic knowledge of Visual Basic or those hoping to improve their skills in the programming language.
