Dan Mabbutt started programming with Visual Basic using version 1.0 and he has the diskettes to prove it.
As the manager of a corporate technical training department, Dan created Visual Basic training for internal customers and for resale. Dan does VB training both online and in person and occasionally finds time from writing for About Visual Basic to write for other people too. His most recent publication is the Apress book, "Pro ASP.NET 4.0 in VB 2010".
Dan graduated with honors from the University of Utah with a degree in Computer Science. He also earned a CNE (Certified Netware Engineer) when networks became mainstream in the 1990's.
From Dan Mabbutt:
"It was clear to me that Visual Basic was going to change programming forever the first time I saw it."
