John Smiley (author)

John Smiley is an American computing author and teacher known for basic programming classes and books.

He is also president of John Smiley & Associates. Smiley has authored books on Visual Basic, C#, C++ and Java. His first book was published in 1998 by Wrox Publishing (ActivePath). He wrote 3 more books for Wrox before Wrox declared bankruptcy in 2001. In 2002, parts of his book series were picked up by Osborne/McGraw Hill Publishing, Apress Publishing, and Muska and Lipmann (now Course Technologies.) In 2004, when the market for Introductory programming books fizzled, he negotiated and obtained the rights to the books and began self-publishing them through Lulu Press in 2006. Since then, he has self-published his new books under the Smiley Publishing imprint. Many of his books have been translated into major foreign languages.

In addition to his 'Learning to Program' type books, he has written a book on the worldwide Stair Climbing phenomenon.

He teaches classes online, first through e-learning ventures such as ElementK or the now defunct Ziff Davis University (ZDU), and currently through his own Moodle Rooms site. Notably, he has taught over 100,000 students via online courses.[1]

He has been a professor at Penn State University, the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, and Holy Family College.[2]
