So I ran across some great content on youtube concerning a course offered at Stanford. The Title of the course is "Programming Paradigms" and the lecturer is Jerry Cain. I'm going to start watching this every day and wanted to share with you all... Enjoy!

Also, here are some other cute clips too:

I've did the Programming Methodology course as a 'refresher' last year.  Once I got into it, I was amazed how much I'd forgotten about programming since my college years. Guess I needed it more than I thought I did. embarassed

I've been watching these and taking notes!!! I was deprived in highschool when it came to learning programming simply because there was one class that was offered for programming and it was a joke. In that class, I finished the year's work in like half a semester so my teacher had to bring in books for me to do extra assignments... I'm in college now and I LOVE PROGRAMMING... im addicted seriously... I cant stop thinking about it... maybe its a bad thing, but its amazing! Anyways, im probably going to watch as many of these as I can!! thank you for the Sanford link smiley

Any suggestions of what I should do to learn more while watching it?

Also I would add read, read, read smiley

I find that even if what you read is going a bit over your head at the time the concept usually sticks enough so that when you encounter a need for it in practise you know exactly where to go back to for help. Then with some material in one hand and the relevant problem to a apply it to in another you're in the ideal learning environment.

A great thing to google when trying go get exposure to a new language is "<language-name> idioms". That usually throws up some good and broadly applicable advice.
