What if you could take a completely free, fast-paced introduction to computer science and Python programming from the comfort of your own laptop? And what if the course was offered by one of America's great tech colleges? That's exactly what this 14-week MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) provides. Interested readers may enroll at any time. The course, taught by computer science professor Zachary Dodds, begins as self-paced and then falls into a rhythm that demands about five to seven hours of work per week. Along the way readers will learn basic Python programming, strategies for solving computational problems, applications of computer science, and various design, implementation, documentation, and testing skills. Students may pay $50 to add a Verified Certificate of completion.
