Since 2000 Stephen has written thousands of web pages containing information about computers. Stephen also teaches a number of computer related courses at the local community college.
When Stephen started programming the many computer courses that are around today did not exist. The way into the industry was to somehow obtain a trainee programming position and to learn on the job. Since that time Stephen has attended many short computer courses. He also has a Workplace Training and Assessment Certificate IV (the main adult teaching qualification in Australia).
From Stephen Chapman:
I believe that the best way to learn anything about computers is with real world working examples and so I include such examples on the web pages that I write where ever possible so you can see it working for yourself right from the start.
