I Took CS50…

CS50 Harvard

… soon anyways!

Last week I started “taking” the Harvard CS50 Fall 2011 OCW course provided online by David Malan. It’s an introduction to Computer Science and Programming course. I am currently finishing up my ‘homework’ which is the problem set from Week Zero and you create a program using the Scratch application created by M.I.T. I decided to make a small pseudo-first person shooter game in which Lauren Bacall has to shoot her way through a bunch of peacocks… it made sense in my mind I swear!
What’s really cool is that I can take the class online with others, starting on October 15th via this site edX, created by MIT and Harvard (and now joining in is UC-Berkely) which provides online versions of real courses, for free:
