Get Yer Code On…

Python
Have you ever thought you might want to learn some programming, but were hesitant because you didn’t have any of the prerequisites (or the funds for outrageous tuition)? If so, this course might be for you:

Programming for Everybody

I just completed a different course by the same professor, Dr. Charles Severance of the University of Michigan. I liked it so much I have enrolled in this one as well. Dr Chuck (his preferred moniker) has a way of taking really complex ideas and breaking them down into understandable chunks without sacrificing the integrity of the information.

The textbook for this course is offered under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported License, which means it is free, and can be adapted by anyone as long as it is not for commercial purposes (which is cool, IMHO).

The course begins on October 6th, and is 10 weeks long. This is being offered on Coursera (the best platform for MOOCs that I have found).

  1. Thanks for sharing, William! I’m afraid having a daughter who is studying Computer science has mad me horribly lazy… she’a making a website for our (not quite there yet) business at the moment and she’s much better than I would ever be.
