Back to School (but not really)

For several years now, I’ve really regretted that I’ve never taken computer classes since I was a Junior in High School.* I really don’t care about getting another degree – I just want to learn how to write programs. HTML & CSS are great, but for me, to really understand the science behind programming Java, PHP, C++, or ColdFusion would be truly fascinating.

So a couple of weeks ago, I went back to school. OK, not really. If you haven’t seen this already, a bunch of courses are offered free online at Academic Earth, so I’ve started watching the lectures for Stanford’s Introduction to Computer Science online, and I love it.

* Most people think my degrees involved technology, but that’s not the case. My undergrad and Master’s degrees were both related to pastoral ministry, not computers.
