I don't participate in that course, but my wife and I support her, if necessary (I have over 40 years experience in software development, so I can help, but I'm a bad techer for beginners). She is working in offices since more that 30 years, using Word and other office tools, but had never learned how to program during her life. All other announced beginner courses led always to the problem, that a general understanding how a computer works is required. This course introduces the very basic things for an absolute beginner in an understandable way, so she got the feeling, that programming is not a magic thing and starts meanwhile with experiments. Together with the textbook and using an editor and some minor hints from me, she is able to write small programs after the first 3 weeks.
It should be annotated that the course has not the goal to make a real programmer, but to give an understanding (~feeling) what programming is. This goal will be reached for sure
