NewTech has always played a leadership role in the markets it serves. These industry affiliations are indicative of the tremendous amount of energy and effort we put into our work.
Our people have strong skills in JavaTM using the Jbuilder development tool. You can find several Jbuilder/Java-related white papers in the Developer Resources section of our site.
We built our initial developer-training business model on Microsoft Visual Basic in 1993. With the VB BOOTCAMP ® (from 1993 to 1998) we eventually taught over 50,000 software developers Visual Basic. We started up VB user groups in Connecticut and Hartford. We hosted Microsoft Developer Days. We taught VB at COMDEX, Database World and Internet World. Today, we continue to support Microsoft and its products with consulting and training services, book authoring and the occasional help-out at conferences such as DCI’s Microsoft Explorer held in Boston MA each year.
We published a number of books with Microsoft Press in the 1990’s. We continue to use these books as our main course material in many of our current courses.
NewTech has authored over one dozen VBPJ articles since 1995 and is an authority on VB programming and related technologies. NewTech authors acting as contributing editors handled the “Q&A” column for quite some time in the late 1990’s. Visit http://www.vbpj.com
NewTech has presented technical topics at VBITS since September 1996 in Orlando. Since that time we have presented over 24 sessions and full day/half day seminars on VB-related programming technique. NewTech speakers have consistently ranked in the top 10% of all sessions presented at VBITS. We have been the #2 of 55 sessions presented twice. Visit http://www.vbits.com

FTP runs VBITS, the VBPJ magazine and a host of additional conferences around the USA and internationally. NewTech presented the VB JumpStart seminar in West Coast venues for FTP in 1998. NewTechers continue to get invites to speak at FTP events such as VSLive! And VBITS.
NewTech has played an active role in Developer Days since 1995 when the first Devdays was presented in 8 cities. We ran Hartford and later Boston over a 7-year period, as MSDN Regional Directors for Microsoft Developer Days. Newtechers hosted the event, drove attendance and selected and trained speakers from the local (CT/MA) developer community. We have taught Microsoft development tools to over 10,000 developers in two states during 14 Developer Days events. We continue to play a role consulting to the current Regional Directors for the Hartford and Boston events.
We have been a strong supporter of the Microsoft Developer Days Event since 1994, when we were first selected by Microsoft to host the event. We ran the event for 7 years in two cities, Hartford and Boston. During this time we delivered presentations on Microsoft tools and techniques to over 12,000 developers via the Developer Days program.
McGraw-Hill is the publisher of the book written by NewTech instructors—the VB BOOTCAMP Certification Exam Guide. This book has sold over 100,000 copies since the 1998. We are proud to be associated with McGraw Hill publishing.
