30 Great Programming & Development Video Courses from Pearson’s LiveLessons Series

Video tutorials have become an essential resource for coders of all types and skill levels. Whether you build applications, systems, games, or websites, learning the latest technologies at your own pace with hands-on instruction from leading experts is an effective training solution for novices, specialists, polyglots, and everyone in-between.  Pearson’s LiveLessons series contains a growing collection of hundreds of video courses for IT professionals covering the full-range of programming and development topics. 

"I really like the way the LiveLessons video training is done. The learning process seems a lot more natural when watching recordings of live coding along with easy-to-understand explanations from a very experienced developer," writes Web Developer, Valentin Gavan.

“LiveLessons are like being able to watch over an experienced programmer’s shoulder as they work. The combination of high-quality video, great content and an experienced teacher creates an engaging learning experience,” states DZone reviewer, Steve Robilard.

Renowned programming author and trainer, Paul Deitel, has published a number of LiveLessons videos. “When I teach programming, I use our live-code approach—I present every concept in a complete working program. Video is the perfect complement to this. Not only can I show students the programming concepts in context, but also compiling, running and debugging too. Plus I can interact with students like I do with in my professional seminars—answering the typical questions I receive as part of my video presentation, emphasizing the most important concepts, showing other resources available and more,” says Deitel.

We selected 30 new and best-selling video courses from our programming and development video training library to help you stay current with the latest language updates, learn new skills, further career development, score a promotion, or cultivate new interests.  A free sample video lesson from each course is provided for your enrichment.
