  2. Introduction to general programming

    A course that is not 'language' specific. Basically instead of teaching us the syntax, etc. of a programming language (C, Python, etc.) - rather show us what does a program consist of, what does all programming languages have:

    *What is an integer?
    *What is a syntax?
    *Variables?

    A course that would explain the above basics, before students go over more in depth.

  6. Database Design

    Any interest in a database design course? I can teach it but checking to see if folks would be interested. Topics: database management systems, modeling data, data types, querying language commands, indexing, and normalizing. It would be as agnostic as possible but some exercises could be in MySQL.
