Customer Reviews of Previous Editions of Programming Home Projects with Visual Basic Express

I just want to thank you for the many tutorials that I have ordered from your company over the past decade.  Your tutorials have been instrumental in allowing me, a secondary​ school teacher in Ontario, to learn what I need to know in order to conduct my own High School Computer Science Classes in Visual Basic and Visual C#.  I thank you, and urge you to keep up the excellent work. It has been instrumental in helping me learn and grow as a teacher.
