This is a great introduction to how computers work. As another reviewer noted, this is not really a programming course. It's a very basic introduction to computing concepts. That said, there are some concepts that are presented in a new and interesting manner. Plus, the instructor is great!

This class is an introduction to how computer works, if you want to learn programming it's probably not the right class for you. Wasn't exactly what i was looking for, but the teacher is great and material is well presented that's why i'm giving it 4 stars
