Hello!

Above is what I have learned in just a week and a half. I have mentioned iProgrammingclub before, but now I am going to get into it more. The site is aimed at beginners, but accepts anyone who is advanced.
Classes have now been setup, and happen live on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These classes, at the moment, are teaching people how to code in Python. Python is one of many languages to code in out there. The course on Python is aimed at creating video games. Now, obviously we won't have a grand scale production and put a game on every console out there, but we will be making side scrolling games. The site is great, and the atmosphere is a friendly one. No one is allowed to put you down because you don't understand something. Every person is asked to help everyone else out. And, since it is a small community, you can read what other people make and see how they create things. This way, you are not only learning from a book, but from each other. However, it is not all fun and games. There is work, and you have to do it if you wish to progress. Sitting around and reading books will not help unless you actually attempt it.
The course is graded, and you can fail. However, don't let this put you down. If you work hard, and try hard, you will pass with flying colors. There has been no better time to join. Since we are just starting, you won't be far behind. And, the best part. If you finish the first four assignments, you will be awarded server space. You can use this space for anything (legal of course) related to the club/. There is no cost to using the server. The only thing you must put into the club, is your effort. And when I say effort, I mean 110% of it. I have already started, and if you ever wanted to learn programming, you should start too.
