Harvard lectures, courseware and assignments for free? Seriously?!
Yup. edX is amazing. I started CS50X, the online version of Harvard’s popular Intro to Computer Science course. Week 0 was amazing – the lectures are engaging, the support materials and other courseware top notch.
Week 0 concludes with a problem set: create an animation, app or game in Scratch – MIT’s fun visual programming platform. It was on my list to learn Scratch anyway, so I dug in and explored a lot of what Scratch has to offer.
Here’s my game – a fun little ghostbusters “inspired” shooter.
On to week 1!
