Version: I took the January 2014 offering which ran in tandem with the Harvard online and in-class versions of the course. The course has been converted to an always available offering. CS50 at edX.

Status: Did not do the last assignment or the final project.

Who should consider this course? Anyone serious about learning programming. Anyone who wants to see if programming is really for them. Anyone who does frontend web development and wants to learn what the backend is all about.

Who shouldn't bother? Anyone who wants to tell their friends they can code, like, for real. That's what codacademy is for.

Disclaimer: So, you hate MOOCs, think they're ruining education. Can't even stand the sight of the horrible acronym. Everyone needs the bricks and mortar experience. Just like ebooks ruin the whole concept of reading, so too do MOOCs remove the essential je ne sais quoi of learning. Plus, they're all just skater courses for people who can't handle the real thing.

If this is your feelings, you have my absolute blessing to go get a blog and tell the world. Just don't try my patience with it here.
