Tutorials Blowout: 294 Tutorials Added!

<p><strong>Tutorials Blowout: 294 Tutorials Added!</strong> -- Posted by <a href="mailto:pberg1@ithaca.edu">Pete</a> on November 7, 2004<br>
Today, I added <b>294</b> more QB tutorials to my already massive tutorials section. There are now <b><i>609 tutorials</i></b> available on this site in the <a href="http://www.petesqbsite.com/sections/tut ... >Tutorials section</a>, not to mention the few dozen that are available in the latest issues of QB Express. Pete's QBasic has, by far, the largest collection of QB tutorials available anywhere.<br><br>Most of the new additions are from QB magazines that have published over the years; I extracted all the tutorials I could find and uploaded them as single, more easily navigable files. Each tutorial listed is accompanied with a brief description, the title of the article and the author. Currently, the majority of the tutorials are on a single page, so the best way to browse it is to load up the tutorials section in your browser and use the "Find" (CTRL F) function to search for keywords. Eventually, I plan to make this section more easy to navigate, but for now that will work. (Besides, in a few weeks, Google will have spidered this page and you'll be able to search it more efficiently than any means I can provide.)<br><br>This update has been a long time coming, and I have spent over twenty hours putting it together over the past two months. It was definitely worth it, though. As far as I can tell, I have put together the ultimate QBasic / QuickBasic tutorials page, and it will be a great resource to QB coders for years to come. If you do any QB coding, I highly suggest that you bookmark this page. I guarantee you that it will come in handy at some point in your programming career!<br><br>Also, if there are any QB tutorials you have that I somehow missed, be sure to upload them! The tutorials section includes an automated upload script which allows any visitor to instantly upload a tutorial. This has been an under-used feature of this site, and I heartily encourage everyone to contribute!<br><br>In other news, I recently uploaded two missing issues of <i>QB On Acid</i> to the Zines section, added a few more misc. zines, and added some links. I'm also getting together material for the next issue of QB Express, which is due out on November 15th. Make sure you let me know if you've got anything to contribute.</p>
