About the author (2005)

Peter DeBetta started programming at the age of ten and eventually turned this pastime into a career. He continued writing software until he attended college, where he switched his computer passions to graphic design. Peter studied linguistics during his four year undergraduate stay at Bucknell University and eventually applied his human language concepts back into his computer programming. Shortly after graduating from Bucknell in 1990 and teaching mathematics in a private college preparatory school, Peter began his career in software programming and combined the two passions of his life to begin teaching Access and Visual Basic (version 2.0) programming and has been teaching both ever since. Peter acquired other computing skills along the way including Java, ASP, VBScript, JavaScript, and his now true love, SQL Server and Transact-SQL. Peter now teaches exclusively for Wintellect, in addition to consulting and developing enterprise level software solutions for his own company, DeBetta Software.
