Introduction to Programming
Computers are awesome. These powerful machines are being used all over the world to make things better and easier, like organising volunteers in disaster relief, allowing people to communicate instantly across the world, sorting the world's information, perform complex calculations and translations easily, allow people to experience virtual worlds, and many things that it would take a human a long time to replicate. It's great using these programs and products on computers and phones that others have created, but it's even cooler to create your own products that can make things easier, delight people, or help them.
"The programmers of tomorrow are the wizards of the future. You are going to look like you have magic powers compared to everyone else." - Gabe Newell, Valve Corporation
