  1. Russ Steele’s comment is a hoot! So Russ, how does this create more jobs? It is fun for our senior citizens, though, but Sierra College also teaches computer science classes. Sheesh.

    Still no word from Russ about what happened to SEDCorp.

    Don,

    “Congratulations on your attempt to learn how to code. While you may never use it in your current or next job, it will give you a better understanding of the complexity involved in surviving in an expanding digital world. I chose to learn and to continue learning Python, a language more attuned to informatics. I understand why the ERC chose C as it is the language used by many of the local tech companies.

    “Yes, Google and Bing are powerful learning tools. Typing the compiler error messages into a search engine can often point to a coding problem solution. There are thousands of people who have addressed the same problem and posted their answers. A plethora of language coaches resides on the Internet.

    “Regardless of the coding language, learning how to parse a larger problem into its smallest parts is in itself a powerful tool to have in your problem-solving toolbox. Stay with it; you will appreciate the feeling of accomplishment at the end of the course. Celebrate with an IPA of two.”
