Learn to Code with Apple
I took Fortran IV in 1968 in college. If it weren't for my boyfriend (later husband), I would have crashed & burned. I found out I'm just not a linear thinker! I loved math & science courses, & the Fortran, but couldn't make it work. I wasn't born to code, I'm afraid.
OK Josh... I signed up at my local Apple Store after which I was given the full title of the course that ended with "for Kids". Heck, I'm a big kid. I'm going anyway!
I'm tempted to sign up too, but I'd suggest canceling your reservation and giving someone younger the chance to register. There's a reason Apple mentioned "for kids" in the course description.
Jim, you are correct in you assertion that I should cancel and I have done so. I hope the "kid" enjoys the program. Still chiding Josh for not mentioning the event was for kids and wishing Apple would offer a program for "seniors"...
