  • They're excellent courses, indeed, and I hope to see more of them in the future.


  • Ian WalkerIan2 In geeks we trust ...

    This really is an awesome resource for anyone looking to get off the ground.

  • Looking forward to more new beginner series. Hopefully, next will be F#.

  • Ian WalkerIan2 In geeks we trust ...

    Design fundamentals could be interesting.

  • Abdelhamida_derrar MSP


  • @Ian2: When you say "design" do you mean "graphic design" or (hopefully) something more developer centric like "enterprise application design" or "design patterns" or "object oriented analysis and design".  Unfortunately, "design" is a VERY overloaded term.

  • TahirTahir

    I think he means design patterns Bob. That is something I need to get under my belt right about now. How about it Channel9, can you get Bob to do some design patterns for beginners. By the way I loved your C# fundamentals on LVS and on Channel9, I hope there will be a part 2 to this series for someone who is already a Junior developer. Keep up the good work.

  • Great Series all of them, congratulations Bob! Very good job.
    I have already seen JavaScript and C# Fundamentals, a suggestion, it would be interesting to have a Fundamental Series ASP.NET.

    Keep up the good work!

  • sherif mohammed redasherif mohammed reda

    This videos is not only for an absolute beginners but also a best fundamental road map for professional developers , indeed my hope is to increase this series by ASP.NET - SharePoint if there is and any new technology , Bob Tabor i have an honor to write to you an say thanks a lot you give people an awesome start to be professionals again thanks.

  • Jonuz MiftariJonuz Miftari

    I have watched most of your series in Channel9 and they are great. Keep up with the good job. I also agree that there should be a video series on design patterns with examples of real situations.

  • Jay MartinezJay Martinez

    Is there a specific order these should be viewed in or do they pretty much stand on their own?

  • TahirTahir

    You can view these in any order as they stand on their own.

  • Clint RutkasClint I'm a "developer"

    @Jay Martinez: any order Smiley

  • manuel lorente monteromanuel lorente montero

    Me gusta muchisimo vuestras aportaciones, suelo dar RT y compartirlas de forma publica en FACEBOOK, Thankyou very muchisimoooo!!!

  • Please make an absolute beginners for LINQ || WPF && || MVVM || TSF .. awesome videos Bob!

  • KennyKenny

    you should also make a series for mysql or sql you do a great job explaining the steps and a great job explaining what each step accomplish

  • MartyMarty

    Thisis not only amazing it is so well explained.

    BOB TABOR.... even though I am an experienced programmer i think bob's way to explain the meaning of things is the best stated and commented. dont change your line you will do alot of good to wanna be programmer.

    Congratulation BOB

  • will there or is there any intermediate series??

  • Great...

    thank you

  • Bob, Please suggest me the best book for Asp.net ,WPF,Sharepoint,SilverLight and WCF.

    Thank You..

  • Greatest content  for beginner developers on the whole web, all linked in one page! Great!

  • @Jay Martinez: As Bob Tabor says in HTML5 and CSS3 series :"HTML5 and CSS3 are foundational topics that you are going to need to learn prior to learning popular web technologies like javascript and ASP.net" , So Javascript series depends on HTML5 and CSS3 series.

  • DanDan


    I have just finished both the HTML5/CSS and the Javascript fundamental series. I am a developer with over 7 years of experience, and found the lessons to be a little slow starting. But, that being said I do not have much experience in these areas and overall found them a great resource to starting my transition into these areas. Thank you very much for putting the time into these videos. Keep up the great work!

  • Hi,

    I have just completed HTML5 & CSS3 Fundamentals. I have to say this,"It was awesome!!".

    I am looking forward for an intermediate series, if possible. Thank you very much for these and keep up the great work!!

  • Mohan RajMohan Raj

    Hi Bob,

    Your videos are really better in means of teaching/explaining, than the Microsoft Guys.

    It's a 200 % True.

    Watched a few. Provides clearly the differences and the purposes of the technologies.

    Great Work !!.

    Waiting for any Design Patterns Series..

  • MeogetMeoget

    I took a programming fundamentals and basic level VB.NET course in college and I have already learned more from these videos than in class. Bob has a great way of teaching this stuff. I recommend this to anyone new or even experienced with programming.

  • Bob,

    I swear you deserve every cent of my college tuition. 90% of my programming ability came from you and my learnvisualstudio and TrainingSpot subscriptions. I see many others above me have stated the same, which only strengthens my opinion of the absolute useless nature of colleges. Really burns me up. 

    As a beginning developer, I, and others I'm sure, are in desperate need of a beginner series for: WPF & XAML, MVC & Razor, Design Patterns, and OO Analysis & Design + UML

    It's unfortunate that the college gets the $100k and you're left responsible for teaching us, but we're counting on you all the same. Will renew my LVS.net account as soon as fresh material is posted. 


    Thanks again Bob.

  • Why not add :



  • @JoshuaCampbell: That's a fantastic story ... yeah, I agree -- $100k would be helpful to me right about now.  Big Smile  But seriously, I'm glad these videos have helped!

    @annaqeeb: Agreed ... I think it is in the works.  Thanks for the reminder!

  • SanathSanath

    Hi, Your videos are really awesome.... Can you please post the videos for ASP.Net......

  • These are great! When can we look forward to seeing a Powershell series?


    Thanks a lot sir.Its is very easy to understand.Because you have well explained the topics.once again i thank you a lot sir..
    its really worthful...

  • shangashanga

    super work

  • You should do a series on making Windows 8 apps using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8 Smiley

  • @BobTabor: I have a suggestion for the video encoding . In order to make the mid quality videos more readable without increasing their file size, I really suggest not to down scale the resolution ; instead decrease the frame rate. This may make motion not so clear but the text will be crystal sharp.

    In fact, I tried the available mid quality , and i felt that the text is sometimes not readable, and in other times it is barely readable. Currently I have to download the high quality to have a good view .

  • Greatly appreciated for all the useful fundamental!

  • Thanks Bob I am really appreciating your lessons, it makes my concept clear...Awesome

  • Mahmoud SolomonMahmoud Solomon

    This is something I have been searching for. This is actually awesome. Bravo and continue the good works.

  • HI,

    I just wanted to enquire as to how these video courses are costed? i.e. 3 free and then charged or are they entirely free for the purpose of learning and spreading knowledge in the realms of programming?

    Many thanks!

  • Duncan MackenzieDuncanma "yeah that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by"

    @ControlF5: Hey there, no worries... all of Channel 9's content is free... no matter how many you watch!

  • Hi Bob, great videos Smiley , I watched C# Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners and it really helped me. From today I will be starting Windows Store apps for Absolute Beginners with C# . Your approach is very helpful.

    Thanks ,


  • Raju GollaRaju Golla

    Excellent resource for beginners as well as recap for experienced devs.

    Still I remember that Bob Tabor's videos were the first video tutorials available on www.asp.net when it was .Net 2.0.

    It would help experienced developers when new version of C# is released with a quick video tutorial with new features in new version.


  • a aa a

    I would love to see an ASP.net series!!

  • kishorekishore

    Bob, all the tutorial videos made by you are awesome.. Thanks

  • Hey Bob,

    Try to make Fundamentals on SQL database.

    Like to How to create database, Update, Modify etc...as well as how to connect with windows form.



  • Hi Bob,

    Thank you so much for the effort and guide to choose the right path. Specially to me,I'm just learning web developer perspective the tutorial video("HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals") it was a very helpful to me. Great Job! 

    PS. I hope your ASP.NET tutorial is free in the coming days =)

  • Michael NajarMichael Najar

    I think Bob Tabor did a great job with these videos. however, one comment I have about these video:
    You made HTML5 & JavaScript fundamentals mainly for Windows 8 and they are great, but I missing Windows 8 Store Apps with HMTL5 & JavaScript. Are you going to make them?

  • @Michael Najar: Oh, you mean these?  Wink

    Windows Store apps for Absolute Beginners with JavaScript 

  • east suneast sun

    Thanks very very much.
    Im now starting,,,
    진심으로 감사합니다.

  • MelvinMelvin

    Awesome videos and great collections out here for free. Thanks a lot and really appreciate the hard work behind it.

    I would love to see how to more examples on VB.NET and ASP.NET to create Windows8 store apps using Visual Studio 2012.

    How to create installable/setup using VB.NET for desktop/laptop/tablets, create and deploy website from scratch for beginners.

    How to create Win8 apps using VB.NET, C# for windows store.

    How to connect to MS - TFS/MTM using VB.NET/C#/ASP.NET and create customize test execution, test case, incoming defect report, graphical (specially chopstick graphs) reports for same.

    Thanks again!!!!

    Have a nice day.

  • ToddTodd

    First I would like to thank you for taking the time to put together such a great series of learning's. They are by far some of the best! In addition to the content, your style of teaching, explaining the "why's" and great delivery style make it very enjoyable. Ok, enough buttering you up....lol....:)

    As someone new getting into development, do you recommend a certain order for taking the above lessons in. I just don't want to start out taking one and then realize that I should have started on a different one because the learning's built off another one.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Rahul YadavRahul Yadav

    I'm your die hard fan Bob! Your Awesome!! I would seriously worship you, If you come to India!! I sincerely Request you to do video Tutorial on Java or Object Oriented Programming as most of the Mobile applications we use today are made of java.. Thanks! :)

  • Hi Watermelon,

    Their is an Functional programming Fundamentals series with Erik Meijer

    It's a little bit advanced but a good source none the less.


  • @bob tabor when will you be publishing Windows Phone 8 for Absolute beginners series.

    eagerly waiting for that......

  • I hope that there are other very long courses like the core c# (about 22 hrs) in other programming languages also.

  • samsonsamson

    hi bob,
    please is there no series of asp.net like that of c-sharp you did on channel9?

  • GeraldGerald

    Hi Bob,

    Did you make any videos for VB for absolute beginners using Windows Form applications? I came across your tutorial after I had got used to other tutorials that used windows Form application. While yours is more detailed and simplified, but your use of console application rather than windows form posed a difficult challenge to my ability to comprehend properly.


    Bob you make a reverence to downloading clips to retain good viewing but I cannot find any button to download/save clip to my hard drive. Could use your help.


  • shah Khalidshah Khalid

    Awesome resource....Thanks

  • Jaydeep BaruahJaydeep Baruah

    best online video tutorial i ever found.

  • amazing videos thanks for all the hard work. any chance for a future series on building mobile website with Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web? Or is there a series I should check out besides the html/css and javascript videos? I need some help installing VS 2012 and getting it setup for a good working environment. Thanks so much Channel 9

  • RonyRony

    Thank you very much for your Html and javascript series. They were just what I needed to start me moving forward.
    There is a lot of material on these subjects which now is accessible to me.

  • Juan CapoJuan Capo

    Bob, you are a great teacher, I'm learning a lot!!!

  • Shaik JamaludeenShaik Jamaludeen

    Bob the videos are good but I have a suggestion. In visual basic fundamentals you use Console application. I would like you to also add Windows Forms Applications so that it would be nice.

    Another info is that I deactivated my account but when I click Reactivate and follow the steps the Error message saying This user has been deactivated comes. I have sent a Contact Us email to you.

  • I'm an experienced programmer in FORTRAN,  DEC assembly language, and incidental contact with a few other older languages.

    I've tried before, but made little progress understand and learn to use these newer languages and object oriented programming.

    I'm currently going through the Visual Basic series, and thrilled with it.  It is teaching me the concepts I need to understand in a logical progression that makes sense.  It is NOT leaving me behind by assuming I know things which I do not know, but must know to understand the materials presented.

    Thanks Bob

  • Aman BediAman Bedi

    @Bob Tabor sir,
    I have learnt so much from your video courses that i just cant thank you enough.Such resources are not available in any institute or training center ...! I just want to thank you so very much for the hard work in creating such valuable assets for learning.The videos not only boosted up my confidence in .NET framework but also helped me to be a better programmer.
    Sir, as a humble request, could you please make a course series of windows azure tutorials? Also could we get advanced c# videos? (all the additional features added in .NET framework 4.5 (2012) and 4.5.1 (2013)?

  • Windowsphone 8 for absolute beginners link is not mentioned above. Please add it also.


  • Hi Bob,

    I was able to switch my job and got good salary offer because of your videos,I had learnvisualstudio.net account some years back.

    I will enable if there are new videos available there ,does it support netbanking or debit card(I am in India),I don't use credit card anymore.


  • Alayo HusseinAlayo Hussein

    Bob Tabor thanks for making this dream a reality. Cant wait to start developing great windows store appssssssssssss

  • YaserYaser

    Hi Bob
    Thank you very much. You and your colleagues did quite excellent. People like you make life more enjoyable.
    God bless you!

  • Out of curiosity, are there going to be videos

    made up for the 2012 version of C#?

    How about the successor to XNA?

  • Sorry, haven't follow this thread.

    @Sanath: That's probably not going to happen.  However, I'm re-creating the ASP.NET 5.0 training on my own website.  Should be ready in time for the 2013 release.

    @RogerInKC: Well, probably never from me.  I'm not a PowerShell guy ... yet.  Smiley

    @SHABEER U: Thank you!

    @shanga: Thank you!

    @Divinity08: You mean this one?  http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Windows-Store-apps-for-Absolute-Beginners-with-JavaScript   Wink

    @annaqeeb: So, I deliver videos to Channel9 and they transcode them into the formats they want.  Streaming requires a lot of bandwidth, especially for 720p videos.

    @hoangmt: Thank you!

    @NomanMalik: Thank you!

    @Mahmoud Solomon: Thanks!

    @Mtan3: Awesome, thanks!

    @Raju Golla: Ah, thanks for remembering.  Yeah, I was doing screen cast videos for .NET long before it was cool.  Smiley

    @a a: Repeating what I said above ... That's probably not going to happen.  However, I'm re-creating the ASP.NET 5.0 training on my own website.  Should be ready in time for the 2013 release.

    @kishore: Thank you!

    @Eigenvector: I did that for Microsoft back in 2005.  I don't know if they're still around or not.  Again, Microsoft determines what they want and I do it.  However, I do have that content on my own site.

    @NoNextCode: Thanks!  See my replies to @Sanath and @a_a, above.

    @east sun: Thank you!

    @Melvin: Wow, that's quite a list.  The Windows Store 8 C# stuff I've already done.  I'm not sure if Microsoft will ask me to do the rest of your list, but thanks for posting!

    @Todd: I know this is a bit late, but I would start with learning a language (like C#) then learning a framework for what you need ... for presentation concerns, learn ASP.NET or WPF or Windows Store development.  For persistence needs, learn Entity Framework.  This wasn't intended to be everything you'll need to know about software development, just a quick start.  Life has many teachers.

    @Rahul Yadav: Wow, that's nice, but I think you'll find *a lot* of more knowledgable people out there.  Probably will never do Java ... I'm sticking with Microsoft.  Object Oriented programming ... you can find a lot of that on my own website.  Thanks again!

    @Tanvir: Done.  http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Windows-Phone-8-Development-for-Absolute-Beginners

    @SumitSahrawat: That 22 hour series content is exclusively for subscribers to my own site.  That's the only language I'm planning on creating.

    @samson: See reply to @Sanath at the very top of this message.

    @Gerald: I created a series like that way back in 2005.  Here's the deal ... too much emphasis is put on the presentation layer technologies.  Master the language, keep your concerns separated.  If that doesn't make sense to you, and why tangling WinForms with data access and business rules is a bad thing, then please learn more about layered architecture.  The WinForms are just a presentation layer, and pretty simple to add on once you understand the language.  Good luck!

    @RICK: Usually it's right below the video.  Search for the word "Download" on any given web page.  That should show you the files that are available for download.

    @shah Khalid: Thanks!

    @Jaydeep Baruah: Thanks!

    @robertjwilliams:  Thanks for writing.  Probably won't happen.  Again, Microsoft decides what they want me to do and I don't think that's something that anyone has discussed yet.

    @Rony: Cool, thank you.

    @Juan Capo: Awesome!

    @Shaik Jamaludeen: Two parts ... first, see my reply to @Gerald, above.  Second, I have no idea what you're talking about with regards to activation, etc.  Can you provide more detail?

    @edndori: Awesome!

    @Aman Bedi: Cool.  re: "Advanced" ... what do you want to learn, specifically?

    @cfab: Thanks, they added it.

    @anurag2911: Awesome, good for you.  We still require a credit card.  More details on my own site.  Thanks!

    @Alayo Hussein: Cool, good luck!

    @Yaser: Wow, thanks.  No one has ever said I make life more enjoyable.  Not even my own family!  Tongue Out

    @GlassAgate: Well, probably not ... not enough changed in C# 2012 versus 2010.  Is there some specific new feature you wanted to learn more about?  re: XNA successor ... I'm not even sure what that would be.  What is the successor?

  • mohamedmohamed

    Hi Bob,

    Thank you so much for that great video but can you please put a subtitle

  • @mohamed: Hi, so, I think Channel9 is working on that for all their content in the future. That's not something I would be doing personally, but I think they really want to add that in the near future.  thanks!

  • Hi Bob. Thanks for all this videos. You are a great teacher.

    Are you planning any Webmatrix (ASP.NET Web Pages) series?

  • GlassAgateGlassAgate

    >> re: XNA successor ... I'm not even sure what that would be. What is the successor?

    I'm guessing that, since you're nested in Fort
    Remond, that you might know, or could find out...

    Of course, maybe you already know, and
    can't say....pesky contracts...

    I'm still new to this....I figured that you had
    a good reason for not making a new series for
    C# 2012....but how about Visual Basic? On
    learnvisualstudious.net, it looks like the videos
    are for the 2005 version...but from this site,
    it appears the videos are newer...

  • @TonyBoySP: Sorry, no.

    @GlassAgate: Actually I'm not in Redmond ... I am in Dallas, TX.  I don't actually work for Microsoft.  True, they gave me a few chickens and ears of corn for these video series.  Smiley  However, they don't tell me anything.  At all.  Ever.  In fact, you may know more than I do because I don't pay attention to the gaming side.  I think the best opportunities for .NET developers is in enterprise software development which is my background.

    As far as LearnVisualStudio.NET goes the Visual Basic content on LVS stopped at version 2005 because, frankly, with rare exception nothing has changed from a beginner's perspective and because I decided to only teach C# on that site from now on.  I've got to draw the line somewhere and there's just too much content to cover to give both C# and VB the attention it needs.  Most jobs I see are looking for C# developers and I want to help my clients get better jobs.  It's as simple as that.

    Hope that helps!

  • I see myself Subscribing to learnVisualStudio.net pretty soon

  • Akash VermaAkash Verma

    Great!! What could be a great job than this, of spreading your knowledge in the most simpler and easier way.

    If you have any such video for Asp.Net MVC, can you to give that link to me please.

    Thank You

  • It's great and helpful

  • AndroAndro

    Bob this is great. I am a woodworker and my hobby is computer science, so i am learning a lot from you.

    i just wona say thanks and great tutorials.

    grettings from Slovenia!

  • @BobTabor: Hi Bob, speaking of LVS.net, I was wondering if you will be ready with the new ASP MVC series soon? I got through the MVC3 (and wow that is tough stuff to keep track of!) and I crave more.

  • anakinanakin

    bob i was wondering if we have to have to already know javascript to use
    Windows Store apps for Absolute Beginners with JavaScript.

  • anakinanakin

    answered my own question by watching, you do!

  • AbhinavAbhinav

    First i would like to thanks you a ton , for providing these great study materials for free :) . Could you please post some tutorials on WPF or Winforms , and another hing that troubles me is the same most debatable question at the moment. Are Winforms or WPF gonna die , as Microsoft is probably focusing on HTML Windows 8 apps. In Short should i still learn them or should i leave them and focus on others. Your reply would definitely guide me to right direction. Thanks :)

  • I'm not too experienced with coding so this is a lot of help.

  • @ciupaz: Just started them, they help alot.

  • JasonJason

    This is great! Need a beginner series like this for PowerShell.

  • Mukesh KumarMukesh Kumar

    All your tutorials are excellent. I am basic learner I enjoyed learning HTML/CSS3, and downloaded the series of JavaScript. Please also include some more beginners series for PhP MySQL, DotNet, Joomla etc.

  • you can't imagine how much time i spent searching for resources like these ,Most Videos/Book out there is just depends on copy/paste technique which is the worst way to learn in my opinion , i like the depth yet simple way of explaining every thing , im about to finish C# Fundamentals Development for Absolute Beginners and i wont stop there i will watch all the other courses  Smiley 

    God Bless You Bob ,you have no idea how grateful im for your effort. 

  • sachinsachin

    dear Sir,
    I want to download ASP.NET videos from beginner.If it is possible...please provide me.

  • jeeriazjeeriaz

    it vry nice

  • Jason CJason C

    One thing I think would be nice is a video that explains the differences between some of these languages and why I would choose one over the other. As an absolute beginner, I look at the courses for C#, JavaScript, Visual Basic, etc. and I don't know where I should start. I think it could be accomplished in a single 20 minute video, just a very high level discussion of the different types of languages in popular use today, what makes them different, scenarios where one excels over the other, that kind of stuff.

  • RubyRuby

    I'm loving the Visual Basic series. Thank you so much.

    Any chance of a series on C++? I'd love to get a leg up on my college course for next term.

  • SrikanthSrikanth

    Hi bob this is srikanth, Iam looking for a good training video which are really free on ASP.Net MVC 4, So please can you help me in giving me a adequate info on this please.

    Hi Sir,
    Thanks for your mind-blowing series of HTML5, CSS3 and J.S as well.
    Hope you present PHP someday :-(
    And where could I meet you except CH9?

  • @bobtabor

    Hi Bob, Your series "Visual Basic Fundamentals for Absolute Beginners (2013 Edition)", is terrific for beginners!  I had done some VB training years ago, but my job kept me too busy to really use what I learned then, so I'm starting over.  I will need to switch from mainframe to small box this year, and your videos are great for my first steps. I have gone through Lesson 18, but have been unable to find a link to be able to download the "tabor.dll" file you talked about.

    Is there another source for that dll file?  I'm not quite to where I am ready to begin a subscription to your site, yet.

    These are the best series for the beginners but please provide the pdf for all the series.

    I hope you present asp.net mvc and sql series........
