Learning Programming Resources
« on: April 21, 2013, 10:51:13 PM »
Hello, I was wondering if anyone could point me to some great resources for people to learn programming. I am teaching robotics and basic programming to less privileged kids and was needing some new resources/material (check out www.inscover.org for more info) Anything is appreciated! Thanks
