    Default Anyone following along with stanford106a?


    I am very new to programming and I am learning by doing Stanford's you tube 106a class.
    I am curious if anyone else is doing or has done this before, I am looking to set up some kind of group where problems and ideas about what is talked about. Anyway if your interested send me an e mail or post here. Hoping to find some ppl to learn along with.

    Welcome to the forum

    Ah, professor marin Sahami or something like that.
    I've glanced over his lectures and they seem very
    solid. Good content and quite humorous too in places.

    The only thing that kept me from learning with the videos
    is the non-standard Java he uses in all his presentations.
    I guess it is easier than learning Swing or AWT, but I
    do think it is one of many possible teaching approaches.
