Programming tester

I know lots of people who have wanted to try to program but don’t know where to start…

I get asked all the time questions like

  • What software do I need?
  • What’s an IDE?
  • Which books the best to start with?
  • What language do you use?
  • Which language should I try?

These are not simple questions and they distract from the core question

“Will I enjoy programming?”

I have found a website that lets you answer this basic question.

http://cscircles.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/

It is a website supported by Waterloo University that guides you from basic concepts of programming though some simple examples / questions all done on the web page to let you try it and learn from the experience. I really like the way it has been constructed so that you can see when you have passed a question and you can also have a hierarchy of tutors to help you out and monitor your progress.

My user tag on the CSCircles is TineInevitableT you can add me as your Guru if you want any help.
