Computer Study Ideas


Back to Basics

Have you ever wanted some software for your computer but either can’t find what you are looking for or found existing software does not do what you want it to? If so, then read on. It is never too late to learn how to develop your own software. Microsoft’s .NET platform is widely used in information technology because Windows products account for a major share of home and office computer systems on the Internet. The technology behind .NET allows programmers to create software programs or applications that utilise the wide spectrum of information technology resources used every day by people around the world. The .NET Framework simplifies Windows software development and it is easy to deploy and maintain. It provides developers with a single approach to building both desktop and Web-based applications. Applications can be designed to automatically upgrade and conflicts between applications can be minimised enabling incompatible software components to coexist. A newly revised course by ACS Distance Education is now available for anyone wishing to learn Visual Basic.NET so as to produce their own Windows applications. All you need is access to a computer with either Visual Studio.NET or Visual Basic.NET installed. Software can be purchased from the school at heavily discounted prices.

Storage Solutions

Storing data is something that most programmers and Web developers need to master. The most common means of communicating with a database is through SQL (Structured Query Language). It is used to update and retrieve data from databases, and is used in a wide range of relational database management systems. The standard SQL commands can be used to perform most tasks that one would need to do with a database, such as ‘select’, ‘insert’, ‘create’, and ‘delete’. SQL Server enables data management to be self-maintaining and self-organising, and supports both structured and semi-structured data. If you are a programmer or developer and wish to expand your skills with SQL Server then a recently revised and updated course by ACS Distance Education will help you to achieve this. The course covers all aspects of SQL through to building and maintaining your own SQL database.

Caught in the Web

You Can Bank on the Internet

The internet has developed an ever increasing role in commercial transactions over the past decade. Nowadays, you can manage your bank accounts, trading portfolios, trust accounts and buy pretty much anything from a house to a paper clip on-line. In fact, electronic commerce or ecommerce accounts for a large percentage of financial transactions across many industries and in many different countries. The volume of ecommerce transactions will only increase as more members of developing countries become computer savvy. However, not all businessmen and women who are adept at marketing are equally as adept at ecommerce marketing. This means you could be missing out on ways to cut costs which could make a real difference to the success of your business in these times of economic uncertainty. If you would like to learn how to incorporate the internet into your financial business operations and how to make it work to promote your business, then you should consider an entirely revamped course in Ecommerce by ACS Distance Education.
