I´ve fallen passionately in love twice. I´m sure I´m one of the lucky ones. The second time was when I discovered computers. I´ve been coding for about 30+ years. Writing or fixing broken code is a passion.
Somewhere along this journey I discovered that I could explain what I coded in simple to understand, English, which led me to technical writing. I´ve published more than 65 books and I still write.
My books are focused on commercial application development using a Relational Database Management System and either Microsoft or Opensource tools and technologies. Here is the link to the books I've authored - http://www.ivanbayross.com/books
Free Opensource Tutorials-
To give something back to the multitude of very talented people, some of whom I´ve had the unique privilege of teaching, I decided to create a website and offer a ton of tutorials on Opensource tools and technologies to anyone interested.
Thus www.opensourcevarsity.com was born. Opensourcevarsity is my personal project. I´ve uploaded a huge number of step-by-step, screen-by-screen opensource tutorials to it. All tutorials are free to access currently. Registration is required though. Opensoucevarsity has the largest collection of Opensource tutorials in HTML and PDF format for free download.
