Tomorrow I will be starting a course in C# with this book using the Microsoft Visual Studio environment at Cleveland State University, and I probably will blog some on that here. Hoping for the best with that, my financial papers are late and I will have no books for 2 to 3 weeks, but I am not worried about it for several reasons; I take good notes and have the internet (and someone will let me copy critical pages on a copier I hope, I did for others before), and I have some hours invested in Visual Studio. If you can’t control it, why worry? Two computer courses (C# and a review course called Invitation to Computing, no book for that course believe it or not), an art course called Intro to Western Art Since 1400 (Michelangelo and De Vinci!) and a one credit career outlook type of thing that is mandatory for co-ops. That will be 13 credits, and I have no plans on anything but finding work after the semester, I have no desire to do another couple years of full time school, I want a job even if I must go back to factory work. Yet I have to experience University learning once, not working what have I too loose. I hear the grades you got at Community College stay the same at a University usually, so it should be fun. Looking forward to just being around a bunch of people again!
I have been an organizer for the HTML5 course at P2P but it is very much a beginners group. I am thinking of signing on for Jamie’s new thing, the old thing is done and over. I must admit the man has a real talent for an on-line learning experience, this time there will be no disappointment.
I also enrolled in a course on “Designing For Communities” a month ago or so and it was helpful. We did something called guerrilla data analysis, which is a great way of tracking what your after, in a nutshell you ask many things of few people vs. many people few things, although that is quite an oversimplification. Here is my excel type work moved from open Office to Google Docs, a really very cool idea.
Love Life out there, Do Good, Try Hard, and Live Well! Leave a comment huh?
