Is this course appropriate for pre-teens to learn programming, or is there a better place to start for that age group?

I got my little brother started on scratch - http://scratch.mit.edu/ - it's an environment that lets you learn programming by creating interactive stories

Mine's done Scratch, Alice, and Mindstorms - but he's wanting to get into what he thinks of as "real programming" :). Plus the word amongst kids is that Python is the language to know.

Python, Ruby, Scala, they're all perfectly good places to get started. Ruby has a good fully interactive introduction at http://tryruby.org/.
