About these labs

This series of labs was produced in conjunction with the textbook Computer Science Illuminated by Nell Dale and John Lewis, published by Jones and Bartlett publishers.  The entire work is © 2002.

The labs were created by Pete DePasquale, a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Virginia Tech where he is a teaching assistant and an instructor (depending on the whims of the department).  Mr. DePasquale holds two Masters degrees in Computer Science, has an extensive background in software development and web site creation, and is a co-owner of VUSports.com - an Internet site dedicated to coverage of Villanova University athletics.  Pete is in the final year of his Ph.D. work (as of the summer of 2002), studying how programming environments affect novice programmers.  He plans to return to academia to teach upon completion of his degree.  He can be reached at pjdepasq@vt.edu.
