About this Website

The purpose of this website is to provide information about, support material for, and links to Quick Start Workbooks.

The support material includes downloadable files such as sample scripts and small applications, as well as videos that describe how to do something that is described in a particular book.

The books use a tutorial, hand-on, approach that typically leads you through what we regard as being the main tasks that can be performed with a particular software application or programming language, for example, the Camtasia Studio video editing suite. We have adopted this approach because we feel that it provides an efficient way for you, the reader, to get up to speed quickly.

This website is maintained by John Dixon, a veteran of the IT industry. John has been working as a technical writer since the mid-1980s, and as a web designer and developer since the mid-1990s.
