I have been searching for information on CS for about a month before I found this web site. :p After reading "Programing FAQ" I have decided to start with python and then to move onto a version of C(although I have not decided which one yet). Would this be a good plan?
My next problem is deciding which book(s) to use. I learned Apple Basic in High School and that is about as far as my CS has gone. I had lots of fun and want to create the same attutude in my boys. I have looked at a few books/programs (Apple Basic-old, Liberty Basic) and they are all so different from each other. Some are very vague in the explanation of the language and others are very clear as to what each step means but are in the wrong language. Any suggestions.
Another question: How do I get our Windows 2000 Pro and/or 2000 XP computers to allow my boys to try their skills without creating problems with the current system?
I would appreciate any advice, ideas, or suggestions.
