What I liked about the site:

  • There are links to the latest tuorials right on the home page itself.
  • Tutorials on many topics such as Computing Basics, Databases, Applications, Computer Hardware, Networking, Programming and many more topics. There are more than 300 categories.

What I didn’t like about the site:

  • When you point to a link it displays a “techtutorials.net” link in the status line. However, when you click on some links, the page that opens is of some other site. I did not like this subterfuge. It would have been better if the actual location of the link was displayed in the status line.
  • The Terms and Privacy Policy of the site seem to have been hastily put together from some boilerplate text. They don’t even contain the name of the company or website, but instead contain terms such as “[Company Name]”, which makes one feel a bit suspicious about the actual purpose behind the website. (I may access the tutorials on the website, but, after seeing their Terms and Conditions page, I don’t think I’d register with them.)
