Codecademy begins offering Python

Codecademy, a startup that offers online programming lessons is now offering courses on Python.

Their offering of python courses isn’t yet as thorough as those in javascript but they’re working on adding more. Plus you can also create your own courses using their course creator.

If you’re serious about learning python, I’d also recommend LearnPythonTheHardway (It’s how i learned ;)

“Become a Computer Scientist” courtesy of Stanford.

We’ve talked about universities releasing lecture videos through ItunesU and occasionally offering full courses, as with Stanfords Intro to AI class. Well now courtesy of Stanford and their OpenClassroom project, anyone can learn all the skills needed to become a computer scientist. If you saw NASA’s recent API announcement and were saddened because you didn’t have the skills to mine that mountain of data for scientific goodies, now you have no excuse.
