Programming for Everybody (Getting Started with Python)

Written a year ago
I took a basic C+ and Assembler programming course in college 15 years ago, but never used either. I've tried (half-heartedly) to find application using Visual Studio/VBA, but being a little overwhelmed at my ignorance of "computer jargon", promptly stopped. I decided to start from the beginning again, being spoon-fed some of the basics. The first course feels a little basic, but feel it is good for figuring out the syntax, which I feel intimidates the un-initiated. Reportedly this gets better as you go on, which I am looking forward to seeing. The Coursera course provides enough motivation for me to do it late at night after the family has been put to bed, so I am greatful for that. Hopefully this will lead to some greater efficiencies in my current job at the minimum (I understand ANSYS has used Python for add-ins, so it must be very powerful and practical), and some extra fun for hobbies as well.
