I coded Pascal and Perl back in the 1980s and 1990s and just stuck with Perl since then. I really needed to learn something more present day.
This course helped me along quickly.
The CodeSculptor programming milieu makes it easy to do the assignments and build fun games.
I thought the course quite ambitious when I saw at first that I was expected to code an Asteroids clone after eight weeks, but it turned out to be quite possible. And what's more: While getting there I learned about event handlers and object oriented programming - stuff that I never really go around to back when.
this course comes highly recommended.
