There was a time in the not-too-distant past where computer programmers were viewed as an elite, mysterious bunch. The general public and non-IT workers knew nothing about coding, beyond the fact that it was complicated stuff. In other words, a relatively small group of individuals had a kind of monopoly on coding competencies. But things are changing.

Thanks to the Internet and advancements in training technology, online courses are democratizing coding and programming. Now someone with even a casual interest can take a handful of online courses and become proficient relatively quickly. In fact, New York City Michael Bloomberg's 2012 New Year's resolution was to learn how to code. If that isn't inspiring, what is? LearnNowOnline is leading the coding training revolution.

So whether it's video tutorials for C#, C# .NET courses, or a Visual Studio 2010 tutorial video, we can make your dream of becoming an amateur or professional programmer a reality.
