anyone have any secrets or pearls about vb.net you want to share

I was asked by my company to begin teach an introductory VB.Net course
2 day seminar. I had been teaching an sql server 2000 seminar.

The brochure they send out for the class creates a high expectation (those
marketers )
that a trainer has to fill. This brochure is entitled "DISCOVERING the
SECRETS of vb.net"
My company requires I have atleast one WOW/pearl/secret (even warings of
what definitaly not to do/ common beginer mistakes) even in each of my 8
sections.
If anyone has something they have found in their unique experiences that
could help
people learn and motivate them to use vb.net or things to watchout for , it
would it be shared with many eager listeners and appreacited by many.
Even if it just something that is simply, "Neat". Or even something that is
not unique to your experience but is a interest thing to know.
Evens really good walkthroughs lab that were very helpful to you that you
could point me to (url).

Here are the 8 sections:

1. .NET fundamentals. basically letting them know what they can do with
vb.net , starting a project, learning the IDE, .net architecture

2.Keys to understandning the vb programming language . variables , arrays,
loops, functions, desicions, properly passing arguments in apps

example: I found some code that simutlates somewhat the control array
available in vb6


3.Creating and Managing forms. diff between loading and showing forms, Main
menu control, multiple form projects, creating dynamic forms

example: showing them how to use the process class to easily launch external
program
4.Getting a handle on vb.Net controls. 4 new common dialog controls,
building customs controls, compound controls, user-drawn copntrols


5.Building cutsom classes. customizing the default members of a class, how
to use custonms classes in other projects, 3 sources of events from classes,
inherirtance


6.Masterin printing techniques. printdocuments control, print preview, print
dialog, pagesetupdialog


7.creating vb.net databse apps. ado.net achitecture, creating connections to
dbs, data adapter, bind controls, create record controls, using dataset
control

8. creating web apps. difference between html controls and web form
controls, modify default stule sheet, create table on web page, use dynamic
data on web pages

I think your company has set you up to fail.

Based on this, and your previous posts, you don't have the knowledge to be
giving seminars on DotNet.

Don't get me wrong; I'm not criticizing you. But a very small percentage of
experienced developers are qualified to address the all topics you've
indicated. Would your company ask you to give a seminar on heart surgery?

I think your company is doing a disservice to you, and your audience.

Just so you don't think that Bob was just coming down on you..
Are you actually serious??????
You have got to be kidding!!!!!

There are certified trainers and book writers that do just what it is you
are proposing to do and they have years of experience and intimate knowledge
of their subject matter. I think you (and your company) are in deep kimshi
if you accepted this task and the company has made commitments based on you
delivering something even close to what you are talking about.

Again, like Bob, I'm not criticizing you, but you should immediately go back
to your boss and suggest (beg, plead) that they hire a certified instructor
to deliver what they promised.
