I’ve just signed up for Coursera’s Programming Languages course. Watched the intro, and can’t remember feeling so hyped about an MOOC.
There’s something deeply artistic and elegant in the way programming languages fit together and I want you to stretch your mind, and I want you to look at this course as a fresh way to look about software. A fresh way to think about programming that you’ve never thought about before. We’re going to make you uncomfortable. We’re going to do things in a strange way.Quite a claim.
