Hello, For those who don't know me, which is probably everyone here, I'm a VB and C++ programmer. I notice that there are a lot of questions on this forum like "how do I code this" or "can this be automated", etc. Sometimes I glance through these thinking, yup, it would take some work but it could be done, and others I wonder why people bother buying login automation scripts and stuff like that since it's really, really easy to make yourself (captcha apart - but I have a solution for that too). Note: This thread is only meant to gauge interest, I'm not selling anything yet. So this is the deal: I'm thinking of starting a BH programming class that would teach you the basics of VB .Net programming and then teach you the stuff you need to perform most of the automations I read about on the forum. The course would be taught 2 hours at a time, in real-time using TeamViewer, a free desktop sharing utility. I would ideally teach the class in groups of 10 or less so I can answer individual questions better. The outline of the course would go something like this: Basic programming (0.5 hours) Finding your way around VB Express 2008 (1.5 hours) Design-time- The User Interface and controls (0.5 hours) Events - what they are and how to use them (10 hours) Basics of coding - Variables, loops, subs, functions, etc (2 hours) What's included with VB .NET - precompiled code (how to use) (4 hours) How to use the extras included with the course (see below) (1 hour) Where to find other pre-written VB code for free and how to use it I realize that's not how programming textbooks usually go (they usually teach basics of coding before events), but I learnt it this way around and I found it much easier. BH Programming (2 hours) Automating web forms and logins (2 hours) Captcha bypass (2 hours) Making a simple trojan/keylogger (2 hours) Using AIML to create a chatbot I am open to suggestions on this list as well since you may be wanting to learn about something specific. Obviously, if many people are interested in the same thing I will accomodate. The student would need to do a bit of work on his own to get the most out of the class, so I would provide some practice problems and give advice, feedback, and solutions. Extras that would be included with the course: Since the target audience of this course would be complete beginners, I wouldn't expect you to make, say, a chatbot all on your own. That's why I'm thinking to include some classes with pre-written code by me (or others) to make your life easier. These might include: -HTML parsing -File joiners/splitters/encrypters/decrypters/compressors -AIML (useful for creating chatbots) -Unsupervised NN (useful for captcha bypass) I haven't finalized this list yet and I'm open to suggestions. Also, handouts for all the previous sections for quick reference would be included as well as links to the best (free) VB forums and source code sharing sites. Additional services Again, the target audience are beginners, so you would be likely to have questions after the course finishes. For this reason, I would give you my e-mail adress so you can come to me with any programming questions for up to a month after the class finishes. Pricing This will depend on how much interest I get, but ideally I will charge something like $5 per hour and per person if I get at least 10 people to sign up. Please let me know if you might be interested in this service, but remember that I am NOT selling it yet!
