I got hooked on programming in 1980 at Argonne National Labs when they got an Apple ][ and were looking to make it do something. I wrote a data collection and plotting program that automated a lot of drudgery out of the environmental studies lab and I've never looked back. I've spent all but six years as a consultant learning new businesses and coding up solutions. I have a particular fondness for embedded systems. Now I find myself spending more and more time creating online video training courses for programmers.

My latest Pluralsight course - Integrating Qt Quick With C++ went live on Pluralsight at the first quarter of 2015. This is the final course in the Qt Trilogy.

I also have two earlier courses from 2013 The Eclipse Guided Tour - Part 1 and Part 2

@Ominus - I too am self-taught but I think "Introduction To Algorithms" - CLRS is a good way to get familiar with the field. Skiena's book "The Algorithm Design Manual" is also good.
