Inevitably every programming book and programming course has you create as your first application a simple "Hello World" program. Therefore, this hour's lesson is dedicated to writing your first simple application with Visual C++ .NET.
The difference is, this lesson already assumes you know how to create a simple application and are at least somewhat experienced with the previous version of Visual C++. With that assumption, the lesson will take you through creating two applications: one with MFC and one using the .NET Framework. This allows you to compare the two methods of programming Windows applications with Visual C++ .NET.
In this hour you will learn:
How to build a simple application with MFC
How to build a managed application with the .NET Framework
How to study and understand the differences between the two types of applications
