Beginner's Guide to Programming -

Most pages written by programmers are for programmers or people who understand their language. This page is for regular people interested in programming. When I had general questions about programming earlier in my career, I found few programmers who could easily and clearly answer my questions. Over the years I have learned a lot about programming, and a lot of it the hard way - reading a lot of material, researching a lot of information and figuring out what it was I wanted to know. The information on this website is designed to provide the person new to programming solid information and to give direction as to what routes that person should pursue. If you have questions about programming and don't know who to ask, you have come to the right place.

Why this website?

Most books and websites about programming assume you already know what you want to do, what language you want to use, and why you are doing it. This website only assumes you have an interest in programming, and need direction. After reading the material presented here, you should have a much better grasp of what direction you need to go to do what it is you want to do. Tutorials are provided for those who discover what it is they want to do and are ready to get started.
