Fully C​ustomizable Computer Programming Tutorials for
Tech School & College Computer Science Teachers​​

“As a programmer, a long time college programming instructor, and as the head of the department, I have reviewed countless programming books for almost all of the most popular programming languages. “Learn Visual Basic” and “Learn Visual C#” by Conrod and Tylee are my favorites.    Object-oriented programming (OOP) is often difficult to explain to new programmers and most books give it no consideration until the second half of the book. The authors have made OOP clear, logical, and astonishingly easy to understand and they have successfully presented it in the third chapter…it is absolute genius. Consequently, every topic after that is much clearer and relevant to students.  All of the examples in the books are interesting and easy to follow.” – David Taylor, VB Professor & Retired Instructor, Seminole State College in Sanford, Florida

OVERVIEW

You can customize and personalize the programming tutorial and the associated source code to fit your unique teaching style whether the class is self-study or instructor-led. Since these tutorials are distributed in an editable Microsoft Word format you can add your own teaching text and/or notes around our teaching text. You can also add your own diagrams and/or personalize the E-Book tutorial to fit your specific teaching needs. Unlike other tutorials and books that are paper or just PDF based, you can modify our teaching narrative and thesource code inside the tutorial and reprint as needed. Each Lesson comes with the completed native source code solution in a separate .zip file so you have the completed and working programs at your finger tips. Each tutorial can be a stand alone self-study unit or they can be instructor led and facilitated by you. This unique flexibility for teachers sets us apart from all other Textbooks and E-Books on the market.
