I took a similar class a few years ago, but somehow came away with only the dimmest notion of what programming can do. There's a big cognitive divide between the nuts and bolts of writing code and envisioning what that code can do. Hoping to bridge.
Wonderfully friendly, supportive, eager-to-help. As the methodology for teaching this subject gets worked out I imagine the concepts will get more readily graspable. A very positive (if sometimes personally frustrating) experience.
