There’s a great course doing the rounds for anyone looking to learn CS/programming. It uses Python and is taught by MIT. Most people who stumble across this blog probably won’t use it as it’s fairly basic, but it’d be a good idea to share it to any friends/relatives who have been looking to learn a bit of programming. It’s currently in week 2 so the discussion boards etc. will be a hive of activity for anyone who will need help as they go.
