“I have learned a great deal from these CDs.  Nobody told me about a lot of this.  Where have I been all these years?  I’ve just been trying to turn out transcripts, picking up things here and there at seminars, but nothing like these tutorials!”

Please note:
All videos run from CD-ROM disks and can be played on your computer even while Eclipse is being used.
