    I had experience before with programming (JAVA), but I did not remember anything and the syntax was a nightmare. In this course, the instructor assumes that you have never programmed before and shows you everything step by step with drawings and also using the console. I took this class at the same time I was taking the MIT python class and I believe this class it's better than the other one if it's your first time programming.
