You can definately sign me up!

Shall I still fart about with Python for the time being or shall I try and learn a bit of C# prior to starting?
With thanks Kenco, my coding nightmares are over!

I'll be interested to see how this academy works out. Will there be a feature on it in LXF if it's successful?! :D

I'm currently teaching myself C# in Mono, but having had previous programming experience before it's more a case of adapting to the way Mono works rather than learning the lingo. This is a great opportunity for noob programmers though, and they'd be insane to turn this kind of opportunity down! :)

My thought exactly Bob.
I've done all sorts from Open Uni Courses to college courses, books and tutorials to Learn Direct courses and yet I still can't hack to save my life.

I'm uber excited about this and to see how it helps. Hell, i'd even be willing to pay for an opportunity like this.

I just hope Paul doesn't drop out 'cause it gets too boring for him. :P

Discontinued?

Postby Andreas_From » Fri Nov 05, 2010 8:11 pm

When will the last tutorials be posted?
The last tutorial was published Wednesday May 5th 2010 and that is not what I call regularly, as the bottom of the page states.
I wanna learn how to program with these tutorials, but I don't want to wait for them. So please either post the last toturials or recommend me another way of learning to program.

Was the C Primer in issue 149 just a one off? If so, I'd be very disappointed :(

Let's have some C, and then some more C!
