This is one of the best CS courses online. Professor Evans is wonderful, the format is very easy to learn with, and you're constantly writing code. As the course progresses the problems become more challenging. Sometimes it's the complexity of the problem you're solving and trying to manage that complexity. Other times it's trying to figure out the most elegant and efficient algorithm you can use.

Guest says:

Intro courses offered by universities get more into CS theory, but spend less time on teaching you how to actually program. There are some gaps as a result though that you don't find out about until much later. If you want to limit the gaps and have a few weeks to spare I encourage you look at CS50x (Harvard's intro).
