I’ve been determined to learn programming for some time now, but haven’t had any success teaching myself. Most of the resources I’ve found have assumed I already know the basic concepts of programming which I don’t. I was getting discouraged until I recently ran into MIT OpenCourseWare. It turns out MIT has begun offering their courses for free online! This is amazing. I want to learn programming so that I can do all aspects of game development myself, and now I can sit in on a class (a freaking MIT class no less) and learn for free?! Sign me up!
The MIT course I’m taking (that just sounds awesome) is 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming.
