Programming Languages Study Group (Week 2)

We only have space for 20 people so please RSVP via Eventbrite to reserve your spot!

Fellow Swabbie, Alex Oviedo, decided to take the initiative to form a study group for Coursera's Programming Languages course. Here is his note to the group:

Hello Code Crew!Wanted to share this free coursera course I'll be taking starting 10/3.  The focus will be overall programming skills and the concepts behind all languages.  It would be great to get a study group together of any of you are interested in also taking the course.  

Below is a brief description but you can get more info at:

"Investigate the basic concepts behind programming languages, with a strong emphasis on the techniques and benefits of functional programming. Use the programming languages ML, Racket, and Ruby in ways that will teach you how the pieces of a language fit together to create more than the sum of the parts. Gain new software skills and the concepts needed to learn new languages on your own."

    I just checked the intro lecture on coursera, and it might be too advanced for me now. Has anyone tried Udacity's Intro to Java class?
