CS101 with Udacity

March 8, 2012

I apologize for the lack of posts lately, a lot of things have been going on that kept me from blogging.

I have been following the CS101 course on Udacity, and it’s been great so far.

It teaches the fundamentals of computer science using Python, my favorite language.

I’m three weeks into the course, and I can say without a doubt that the course is far better than those offered by Stanford, at least they managed to get the courses started.

The homework given is challenging, but not too challenging so far.

I recommend you check it out, I’m sure you’ll find something that interests you, they currently have only two courses, but three other courses will be starting in April.

In other news, I’m also enrolled in Stanford’s Algorithms class and I don’t think I can handle it, the course is somewhat dry and the videos are too lengthy.

A 17 minute introduction video is just too much.

However, if you find Udacity’s offerings too easy, or even uninteresting, I encourage you to try Stanford’s classes, I think they’re aimed at people with more Computer Science knowledge than myself.

I’m also working on a little project using Python.
