BozemanLUG member Jordan Schatz posted the following recently to the mailing list so I thought I'd share it here:
[BozemanLUG] Programming Class
So I think being able to obtain the source for software is very important, but just as important is having the skill to modify that source... so in that vein I've been asked by a few people "how do I learn to program?". I love writing code and learning about or teaching computer science so I thought see if there was enough interest do put together a class. I think I'd need 10-20 people to make it worthwhile. The class would be aimed at adults or highschool juniors / seniors that know how to use a computer and are interested in learning how to code but have little or no prior programming experience.
I want to try a 6 hr (or there about) intensive class on a Saturday and then see what people want from there, but I would consider other formats too.
If you are interested or know someone who is, drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org preferably with "Programming Class" in the subject line, if there is enough interest then I'll find a place we can have the class and email
out a date and time.
