    For a year or so, I developed a course to take rural workers to Jr programmer status. Had to quit when my boss told me not to tell the students that CakePHP was interested in hiring 4 of them.

    Fast forward a year, they tried to run the course without me and screwed it up. So I want to do an online course that I can show to the folks over at the economic community development center, and see if I can get a job doing this.

    So I am thinking of doing the course online, taping it and using that to get my foot in the door -- or sell down the road possibly!

    Anyhow, wondering if anyone might be interested in the course? If I can get 5 to 10 folks, will start putting the course online. Have a lot of the tests there now, need to film the lectures or do webinars. The course covers:
    a. intro to file systems
    b. HTML
    c. CSS
    d. Basic PHP
    e. Basic DOM
    f. Basic Javascript(very simple)
