Michael says, “Like many of us, I am a person whose job and life revolves around technology I use on a regular basis; however, I have no understanding of how most of it works. That changed after taking this FREE beginners computer science course from Harvard University. The course starts with C, the foundation of today’s newer languages, like Python (used for automating tasks and conduct data analysis) and SQL (which you can store data in databases). Along with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, all of which are the backbone that supports web and mobile app design.”

Even if you are not a student at Harvard, you are welcome to “take” this course for free via this OpenCourseWare…”  David J. Malan, Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Computer Science, Harvard University
