Two aspects of the design are emphasised: the URLs presented in the browser address bar should be understandable and can be controlled by adding routes to the ASP.NET Routing Engine, and the navigation controls, such as menus and breadcrumb trails, should present the most relevant links to frequently read pages. Search Engine Optimisation is important throughout this module.

Lessons

  • Analysing Information Architecture
  • Configuring Routes
  • Creating a Navigation Structure

Lab :Structuring ASP.NET MVC 5 Web Applications

  • Using the Routing Engine

Module 10: Using JavaScript and jQuery for Responsive MVC 5 Web Applications

The goal of this module is to teach techniques that run code on the browser. This approach can increase the responsiveness of the application because a rendered page can respond to a user action without reloading the entire page from the server. You'll learn about the jQuery script library and how to use it to call web services and update user interface components.

Lessons

  • Rendering and Executing JavaScript Code
  • Using jQuery and jQueryUI

Simon Gilson, Prodrive IT. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)

"The training through firebrand was all in all a good experience. The instructor was a brilliant tutor who made sure we were all engaged. I feel as though the course needed an extra day in each subject for the information to sink in properly, and the one main issue I had was that the course resources were outdated for the exams we were sitting which made it harder to revise, but the trainer did recognise this and put some material into his lessons to try and overcome this. "

Adrian Lloyd-Owen, Lucid Partnership LLP. - Microsoft MTA Software Development Fundamentals (2 days) (8/11/2018 to 9/11/2018)

"A lot of information to take in 2 days, but it came to no shock as that what was expected, and what I signed up for. I do believe I would benefit more if the course was delivered in 3 days rather than two. That way we could put into practice what we had learnt. We didn't have much time to do actual coding, but it was a great starting point and gave me the boost I needed. The instructor was knowledgeable in the field and answered any questions I had. "
Ria Hilfi, N/A. - Microsoft MTA Software Development Fundamentals (2 days) (8/11/2018 to 9/11/2018)
