Hello!

Are you having trouble understanding how your computer works or figuring out how to do something in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint?

Do you want to create your very own website and don't know where to start or you need some help?

Frustration is one of the greatest barriers to learning.

Let me help you to overcome your frustrations, to learn, and to achieve your goals.

I have completed courses in these areas and have years of experience using them privately, in business, and in the classroom.

I try to explain concepts in terms that you understand - one-on-one or in a classroom setting.

My greatest reward is when my student smiles and says "Now I get it!".

I look forward to helping you!

Mr. Lynn G.

Computer Programming

Writing computer programs means writing instructions, that will make the computer follow and run a program based on those instructions. Each instruction is relatively simple, yet because of the computer's speed, it is able to run millions of instructions in a second.

Writing a computer program can be like composing music, like designing a house, like creating lots of different things.

Computer programmers learn how to write various programming languages used for software development and operating systems.

A programmer performs program testing, debugging, and later, customization.

I have a BSEE, with a minor in Computer Programming. I have an MBA with a minor in Computer Programming. And I have a Webmaster Certificate.

In the past, I have written computer programs using machine language, Basic, Fortran, and Cobol. More recently I have written programs using HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySql.

Let me give you an overview of Computer Programming - are you suited to be a programmer?

General Computer

A computer is, at its most basic, a machine which can take instructions, and perform computations based on those instructions.

It is the ability to take instructions — often known as programs — and execute them; that distinguishes a computer from a mechanical calculator. While both are able to make computations, a calculator responds simply to immediate input. In fact, most modern calculators are actually computers, with a number of pre-installed programs to help aid in complex tasks.

Computers range from the very small to the very large. Some are capable of doing millions of calculations in a single second, while others may take long periods of time to do even the most simple calculations. But theoretically, anything one computer is capable of doing, another computer will also be able to do. Given the right instructions, and sufficient memory, a computer found in a wristwatch should be able to accomplish anything a supercomputer can — although it might take thousands of years for the wristwatch to complete the operation.

Let me help you to learn about your personal computer.

HTML

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the main markup language for web pages. HTML elements are the basic building-blocks of webpages.

The purpose of a web browser is to read HTML documents and compose them into visible or audible web pages. The browser does not display HTML, but uses the HTML to interpret the content of the page.

HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to create interactive forms.

Let me help you to learn HTML.


Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel is an electronic spreadsheet program that can be used for storing, organizing and manipulating data.

A cell is the basic unit for storing data in the spreadsheet.

The types of data that a cell can hold include numbers, text or formulas. Just as in math class, formulas are used for calculations usually involving data contained in other cells.

Spreadsheets are often used to store financial data.

Other common operations that Excel can be used for include:
•graphing or charting data to assist users in identifying data trends.
•sorting and filtering data to find specific information.

The information garnered in a spreadsheet can easily be incorporated into electronic presentations, web pages, or printed off in report form.

Let me help you learn Microsoft Excel.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a full-featured desktop presentation program. It is part of the Office suite and can be purchased separately.

A presentation can be a collection of slides
relating to a specific topic, which may be shown while the topic is discussed or may be
shown as a continuous show. From the presentation slides, handouts, speaker notes, or outlines can also be prepared.

PowerPoint contains graphic tools and many kinds of pictures and graphs to be imported.

Let me help you learn Microsoft PowerPoint.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Office Word is a word processor designed by Microsoft, and was first released in 1983.

Microsoft Word, or Word as it is commonly known, is a software application that allows you (the user) to perform word processing. You may use Word to create documents such as letters, invitations, term papers, flyers, resumes, novels, and much more!

Let me help you learn Microsoft Word.

PHP

PHP is a powerful tool for making dynamic and interactive Web pages. Before you try to learn PHP, you should have a basic understanding of the following:
HTML/XHTML
•JavaScript

I received my Webmaster Certificate from Rio Salado Community College, and took an on-line course in PHP and MySql.

I have developed many web sites; sorry, you can't see the intranet web sites because they are private, proprietary web sites.

How can I help you?

SQL

MySQL is a database system used on the web. Basically, a MySQL database allows you to create a relational database structure on a web-server somewhere in order to store data or automate procedures. If you think of it in comparison to Microsoft Access, MySQL is what holds all of your tables, PHP acts as your queries (among other things), and your forms are basically web pages with fields in them. With all of this combined, you can create truly spectacular projects on the web.

In comparing MySQL to Access you’re going to have a lot of differences. While MySQL isn’t exactly tough to tackle (once the tables are created – you’re pretty much done with it), it’s capabilities extend far beyond that of Microsoft Access when dealing with speed and reliability. It’s simply a better system – and it should be. Microsoft Access is only a desktop database system. And while a limit of 10-20 concurrent Microsoft Access users is fine for most small organizations – when you’ve got a webpage getting 10,000 hits a day you’ll need something that can handle all of those queries efficiently.

Let me help you learn MySql.
