It's a very good course. * It's real introduction to computer science. * You'll learn about computer, algorithms and programming languages in general. * You'll learn best base practices of programming (testing, debugging, documenting, creating pseudo code). And it's really helpful for beginning programmer. And also it is a real pleasure for rigorous mind. * You'll learn Python. * You'll learn great programming paradigm - OOP. * You'll begin to learn how to solve _computational_ problems. I've completed also Udacity's Intro to Computer Science. Udacity's course is more fun and more close to everyday life. MIT course is first of all about science, it looks deeper at some specific issues. Take both if you can. Udacity's first, since it's more detailed about the very first steps in Python.
I took the course 2 years ago. Just want to do justice to the course and instructor Dave Evans. It was a real pleasure. Dave is one of the best teacher I saw. Now after two years I feel very pleased that I remember how search engine works and that I can create the one by myself.
Good course. I've got a flavour of what is it to solve real life problems computationally. I especially thankful for intro to Machine Learning since I'm not going to take a whole course about ML yet, but I was really interested in the theme.
