Visual WWW is
a pioneer in Microsoft
Visual Basic (VB) windows application development and
has been using it since version 1.0 for DOS in 1990. Visual
WWW developed a project in 1992 using VB 2.0 for Windows and
several of then using VB 3.0 in 1993-1994. In 1994-1996, Visual
WWW developed PC-based
and Client/Server database windows
applications using VB 4.0 (16-bit and 32-bit) against to Access,
SQL Server and IBM DB2 Mainframe. With VB 5.0 in 1996, Visual
WWW developed custom windows control using Control
Creation Edition as well as many database windows applications.
In 1998 VB 6.0 appears with a complete set of ActiveX COM
components development, including DLL, EXE and OCX. Visual
WWW developed and implemented a number of windows applications
using N-tier architecture design, including presentation tier
(GUI), business logic tier for data validations and business
rules implementation, and database objects tier for data retrieval
and transactions. Visual WWW has provided many DLL COM components for Internet web applications
using ASP technology. Visual WWW had authored and co- authored 17 VB papers publisher in Inside
Microsoft Visual Basic magazine from 1998. Click on Dr.
Ernest Bonat, Ph.D. to see more about the VB papers. With
VS.NET 2002-2003, Visual WWW has provided software-consulting and training services for
many companies in the Portland area. Today, Visual
WWW is a 100% Microsoft database business application
development shop using VS.NET against Access, SQL Server,
Oracle, MySQL and IBM DB2 Mainframe.
The introduction of
Studio .NET (VS.NET) in 2002 by Microsoft dramatically
changed the Windows and Internet application development.
For the last years many companies have been migrating and/or
developing database business applications using VS.NET. Below
is a synopsis of some of the work done by Visual WWW using
Basic.NET (VB.NET) development technology:
(HP), Corvallis Campus hired Visual
WWW to provide a complete VB.NET training for IT and
technical employees with different levels of Windows and Internet
web applications development. For the first time Visual
WWW introduced a VB.NET custom-programming course called,
"Visual WWW .NET Training
Pack". This course was specially designed for beginners
and advanced IT employees. The course provides a jump-start
for learning how to design, develop and deploy production
database business applications using Microsoft .NET technology.
To learn more about this course check it out at Visual
WWW Training. At the same time Visual
WWW provided software consulting services for many
HP production IT projects. Here is an excerpt from an HP employee:
"As a professional software developer for a major
global high tech company I have found that Ernest's style
of teaching enables better, faster, and less expensive developing.
Ernest encourages development that is low cost maintenance
with high return. I have personally found that the tools that
I learned in Ernest's classes have enabled me to develop supportable
applications that have significantly reduced operating costs.
Ernest doesn't just teach syntax but embraces the philosophy
of best professional practices. Ernest spends hours reading
and researching his material. During the classes Ernest encourages
students to adopt the philosophy of developing complete solutions
with insight into integration of the application with other
software and/or technologies"
In Jun/2003, Medford
School District 549C hired Visual
WWW to help design and develop the "Secondary
Teacher's Grade Book" Internet web application. This
application was developed in ASP.NET/VB.NET/SQL Server 2000
Microsoft technology. Version 1.0 of the application allows
teachers to enter new assignments, edit and delete assignments,
and enter individual scores for them. In Jan/2004, Visual
WWW was hired by Medford
School District 549C, Grants
Pass School District and Three
Rivers School District to design and develop a unique
SQL Server 2000 database to meet all the business requirements
for each school district. SISnet Student database project
included table definition and documentation, views, stored
procedures, user-defined functions, triggers, cursors, as
well as business rules implementation at the database engine
level. Visual WWW implemented
for the second time the "Visual
WWW .NET Training Pack" to teach employees of the
three school districts.
Visual WWW provided the best
VB.NET programming practices to design and implement the SISnet
Student Search window. This window allows entering District
Name, School Name, Student Last Name, Student First Name,
Student Gender, Student Birth Date and Student SSN. The response
of the search was considerable fast. This window was implemented
and tested using SQL Server dynamic generated stored procedures,
ADO.NET and XML technologies. Here is a quote from a Medford
School District employee:
"Ernest is the ideal consultant. Very dependable
and willing to go beyond the normal job duty. He quickly understands
what you want to accomplish and then takes you through the
steps to accomplish it. Ernest's most recent project with
us consisted of integrating our Secondary Teacher's Grade
Book database (SQL Server 2000) and our Student database (legacy
HP3000) to be accessible online by teachers. The application
was developed in ASP.NET/SQL Server 2000 Microsoft technology.
Without his help I would have been spinning my wheels for
months. He quickly was able to steer us in the right direction
and we completed the job ahead of schedule"
"I feel the 2373B Programming with Visual Basic .NET
class was a 'must' for myself, a VB 6.0 programmer that needed
to update my skills to prepare for projects that will use
VB.NET. I'm very pleased with the course content, but benefited
mostly from the professional programming knowledge that Dr.
Bonat passed along to all of us in the class. I plan to take
other course offerings from Dr. Bonat that cover other aspects
of Microsoft .NET"
Ernest Bonat holds a Ph.D. degree in IT from Cuba, Russia,
Canada and the USA. He started a professor career in USA at
of Phoenix in Feb/2001. Since then he has been teaching
Database Concepts, Database Management Systems, Introduction
to OOP, Access and SQL Server Database Programming, Visual
Basic and Internet Web Programming courses. In May 2004 Ernest
was selected as 2004 Faculty Member
of the Year of the IT Department. In Sep/2002, Ernest
started teaching VB.NET programming coursers, including POS/402
Visual Basic .NET and POS/405 Advanced Visual Basic .NET.
Here is one of the student opinions.
"Dr. Ernest Bonat is an outstanding instructor who
engages his students fully in the learning process. He invests
the right amount of humor, personality and knowledge to make
learning fun. Dr. Bonat truly cares that the students walk
away from his course with real life tools. In POS405, he taught
us how to create a web interface that manages data in a database,
and that was just the extra credit! Ernest really knows his
subject. This is my second class with Dr. Bonat as an instructor
and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from
Ernest in more than one class. Thank you Ernest!"
WWW is reviewing and updating the "Visual
WWW .NET Training Pack" to meet DONCASTERS
Medical Technologies (DMT) manufacturing applications
development needs. The DONCASTERS Group is a leading internationalmanufacturer
that supplies precision components and assemblies to the aerospace,
power generation, and specialty automotive and medical industries.
DONCASTERS Medical Technologies, Oregon Operations that manufactures
high-specification investment cast orthopedic implants. DMT
has a number of manufacturing production applications that
were written in Access 2000 and VB 6.0. Visual
WWW has been provided software-consulting services
to DMT from Sep/2000. Visual WWW
designed and developed the Barcode Labor System 2.0 for VISUAL
Manufacturing system users; this system was implemented
for the first time at DMT. Today, Visual
WWW provides the required VB.NET training and consulting
services to help DMT IT employees migrate to VB.NET 2005.
"I have been a Visual Basic developer since 1997, starting with Visual Basic 4.0 and moving to versions 5 and 6 as they became available. In 2004 I had the great fortune to meet Ernest Bonat through his work with Doncasters Medical Technologies where he had developed a number of Visual Basic applications and where I was tasked with the development and maintenance of numerous Visual Basic applications and the eventual migration of these same applications to Visual Basic.NET. I studied with Ernest for 40 hours of one-on-one VB.NET training where I learned not only the essentials of the new development language but also gained greater insight into the business development process. The depth and breadth of his Visual Basic knowledge makes Ernest a natural for VB.NET training"
In June 2006, stored
scheduling department of Kroger
- Fred Meyer hired Visual WWW
to develop a "Labor Management Criteria Maintenance System"
and teach his employees with the latest Windows programming
technologies using VB.NET 2005 / IBM DB2 Mainframe. The Kroger
Co. spans many USA states with store formats that include
grocery and multi-department stores, convenience stores and
mall jewelry stores. Kroger operates under nearly two dozen
banners, all of which share the same belief in building strong
local ties and brand loyalty with our customers. The "Visual
WWW .NET Training Pack" has been implemented for
Windows application development using VB.NET 2005 / IBM DB2
Universal Database 8.2. Here is a quote from an employee.
"Ernest has a great classroom manner, and evident
skill as a teacher and programmer. Ernest bases his class,
like his development, on the discovery and description of
business rules, and only then, on the implementation of programming
solutions. Using real-world business demands to demonstrate
programming techniques and available tools, Ernest creates
a rich learning environment where concepts are learned as
solutions to problems, not dry syntax. As much as programming,
Ernest teaches analysis and implementation skills, which makes
for better programmers, developing lean, flexible, portable,
and powerful solutions. Thanks again for your help and advice!"
