Taking a course for it later this month from a local business group that's offering the course for FREE.  They also said they're going to be working with local business groups to help those who do well match up with jobs, so who knows?

Anyway, been doing some "pre class" assignments, and been studying the language.  I've had some programming before, I did Turbo Pascal when I was FIRST in college, some Java the second time in college (circa 2005), and a little of Visual Basic.  As with a lot of programming, I pick up the concepts usually pretty easy, but often get tripped up with formatting rules and such.  

So, anyone hear here a programmer?  Be cool to "talk shop" with ya.  :)

Gee, I've been learning Python since the 1980s. Monty Python, that is.  Twirling

I haven't done any actual programming since BASIC died out. I was pretty good with that, but I never branched out into other programing languages. I regret that a bit. Good luck with it.

I had a semester of HTML, Visual Basic, Visual C++ in undergrad.  Along with some exposure to Java.  Some of it stuck. 

I've taught myself a little bit of UNIX/Linux shell scripting, just enough to be dangerous.

Oh yeah, forgot about HTML, did some of that in my Web Design class as well.  :)

I gotta say, to me, the easiest of all the ones I've done is Visual Basic. From what (and considering it was only a semester, probably very little) I did with it, you basically start out putting something together visually, then you jump "behind the scenes" to make it work how you want to.  To me that was just far easier to conceptualize and grasp then say, Java, where it's do a flow chart, put in one line of code at a time, watch as your program not work, spend an hour just finally realize you put a damn colon in the wrong place, repeat. 

Problem is though, I'm not really sure if there's ultimately that much you can do with VB....

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
