Dr. Joe Hummel has just published: Learning How to Program with Scratch

Interested in learning how to program your computer? Interested in Computer Science? Interested in the connections between computing, Computer Science, and Mathematics? Or maybe you just want to create some computer games? If so, this course is designed for you.

Using the Scratch programming environment, Joe will show you how to start building interesting programs in just 15 minutes. If you give Joe a few hours, he’ll teach you the general skills and principles you need to be successful in just about every major programming language.
