Want to Go to MIT?

Would you like to go to MIT? Or sit in on their first-year programming lectures (which now use Python)? Old news, but now you can: course materials and lecture videos are now online. I’m way behind this curve—some of the early Software Carpentry lectures were videotaped back in 1997, and Paul Lu and I gave some lectures via Skype Video this summer, but that’s it. I’d really like to create a high-quality self-paced over-the-web version of the course, but if what I’ve heard and read is true, an hour of usable material will take 50-100 hours to create. That’s… um… carry the three… pretty much a full working year for one person, which means it’s unlikely to happen. sigh
