A large number of programmers and developers are increasingly being tasked with writing software training courses for their company. The majority of these programmers and developers are unsure of where to start and how to put together a step-by-step plan to train other people. Packt Publishing has just announced a book that gets right to the point with clear, concise directions for developing an end-user software course.
It�s the nature of being a successful and talented programmer when your boss asks you to train users and develop software classes for your company. However when you�re busy and don�t have much time to spare, you end up designing a course for the short term that doesn�t carry much weight. Over the last fifteen years, William Rice has developed a book aimed specifically at these types of people, giving a step-by-step guide to developing a software class.
�User Training for Busy Programmers� gives step-by-step instructions to developing a software class. Without getting bogged down for a second in education theory, readers will be developing successful training courses in no time. The book walks through the process of developing a successful, instructor-led software class.
There are many good books on training theory. However �User Training for Busy Programmers� takes a more practical, condensed approach for when you don't have time to learn training theory. It is based on fifteen years of technical writing and training experience. In just 120 pages, the book guides readers through the process of developing an end-user software course using a method that is tested, proven, and based upon sound instructional theory.
User Training for Busy Programmers will be released in June, for more information, please visit: www.PacktPub.com/book/training_for_programmers
