For any of you who are new to programming or computer science (like myself), there is a new opencourseware course for intro to computer science and programming on MIT's OpenCourseWare site. From the looks of it, the course is based around python, I am going to start it today, and will let you know how it goes. Anyone else interested in trying the course, let me know and we can help each other if need be.
