Visual WWW is a pioneer in Microsoft Visual Basic 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.

In Sep/2002-Oct/2003, Hewlett-Packard (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"

In Oct - Dec/2003, Portland Community College, Capital Center hired Dr. Ernest Bonat, Ph.D. .to teach Microsoft .NET Certification Course 2373B: "Programming with Visual Basic .NET". It was the first certification course taught for experienced Windows and Internet web applications developers. This class was very well received by the administration and students. Here is a student’s perception after completing the course:

"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"

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!"

"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"

"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!"
