Taking advantage of DW's new community sticky feature:

This is a community for people following along with MIT 6.00: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, which is part of their OpenCourseWare project; the lectures, reading assignments and problem sets are all free and available online. The goal is to do a first run-through from November 2009 - February 2010, although obviously you can go at your own pace, and it would be great to muster up enough people to support each other on different timeframes (one lecture a week or starting after the new year).

Feel free to join in at any point! No programming experience necessary.

ETA: If you don't have a dreamwidth account but would like one, check out [site community profile] dw_codesharing or drop me a line.

Heeh, I'm very excited about it.

As someone who tried to learn ruby on her own and kinda failed at it, I can't wait to study the theory of programming with other people.

If you want to get back into Ruby, you can always come over to the coders darkside :D We don't have any formal stuff for learning Ruby, but our Rails resources are nice, and it's a great motivating factor building the AO3!

I know! That was totally my (not so secret) plan, but I never got my set up working and never really finished learning ruby as I wanted. I think I'll try again after this semester is over. (i.e. after the holidays)

Yeay! You don't need to know Ruby before you start working on the Archive, you pick up a fair bit as you go along. And the setup is not quite such a pig as it used to be, so fingers crossed it will be easier the next time you try!

*loves having more coders*

This sounds fun. I think it would be good for me to love programming because I have to take a bloody Fortran class for my major (meteorology, by the way.). I've played with Python but I'd like to learn Perl and Ruby, if only because I am overambitious. xD;
