    So about a year or so ago I was trying to get into learning some programming, it might have been 18 months or so actually, but what's that matter anyway. I was looking at a number of things and finally decided on either C# or Java. Well after a little digging around I came across something that was really amazing. I wasn't able to take full advantage of it as other things kept pulling me away until finally I just had to shelf it until later. I saw a thread about C# and Java though and it reminded me of it, and I figured why not share it here in case someone else does have time. Basically it's a collection of courses from Stanford University. Yes, that Stanford, and NO, it doesn't cost anything. http://see.stanford.edu/ is the official site for Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE).

    Like I said, I wasn't able to fully take advantage of this because of other things requiring my time, but I'd recommend it to anyone that was considering learning. To say I was amazed at what they're offering would be a terrible understatement. The only thing that's missing is the bill, literally. It's not just for beginners either, there's an iPhone application programming course, there's even courses inA.I. (artificial intelligence). Hope it helps someone, and I hope I can get back to it again soon too. Have a great day everyone.

    Edit: Just in case you're wondering, you don't even need to sign up for anything. Everything is available to download in a .zip file that you can then watch/go through at your own convenience.

    Sweet, no problem guys. I'm glad you're liking it. I started on the intro to computer science courses before. I actually had watched and worked my way through about 8 or 10 lectures/classes before I started to drift away. It was really good I thought though, and I remember feeling like I was really actually onto something as far as learning to program. Being able to watch the actual class lectures and hear the teacher/instructor explain things I think is so helpful. It made it so much easier to follow along, and the beauty of it is you can pause and go back and stuff. Just seemed like a really thorough and easy way to learn. I'm definitely going to go back to it soon when I have more time.

    Funny you should say that, I actually looked it up back then and I believe it was around $13,000 (USD) per quarter. I forget exactly how many hours that included, probably 12-15ish but yeah, crazy expensive. I actually was laughing with a friend of mine saying how do you think those kids that paid full tuition feel seeing that the course is online for free. Lol.
