New language workshops

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

Finally, after a lot of brainstorming and evaluations, we’ve decided to put Visual Basic into our books of history. Thanks to the Mono platform and Apache servers, we now have more choice with ‘cross-platform’ languages and tools.

So with this in focus, we’re directing our language training workshops to the following:

  1. C/C++ : This is primarily based on the G++ compiler. And the availability of this compiler on nearly all platforms makes it possible to compile the code with little or no change for various Operating Systems (OSs).
    Once you’re ready with the basics, you can move on to GUI coding with various platforms like CodeBlocks, for example.
  2. Mono (C#) : Want to develop .net apps on Linux? This is the way to go. You can easily take Windows projects to Linux and vice versa with (often) zero change.
  3. PHP+MySQL : I don’t think anyone needs to know the benefits of using this superb combination of tools for web-based apps. In reality, it doesn’t have to be web-based applications. We’ve built systems running on LANs over browsers. They can be nearly anything from Accounting to Payroll and so on…
  4. Pascal : We mean FreePascal for obvious reasons. A very few people know the power of Pascal because of the ‘VB hype’. But in reality, once you get the grip of Pascal (which is probably the easiest language to learn), you can move on to Lazarus, and build Delphi-style applications.

Should you need to attend any of our workshops in the above areas, please feel free to contact us.

Happy learning
