    I'm studying for two reasons: 1) A million years ago, I learned to program in other languages and wanted to update my skills. 2) I'm participating in the test round of the Mechanical MOOC course, so trying an experiment in open education.

    I'm working on a career change that requires programming skills. Python is one of the main languages used by computational linguists. It's a bonus that it seems to be easier to learn than other languages.

    I'm also participating as apart of the test round of the MOOC. It's also convenient that Python is an excellent server-side language to begin learning. Python is Object Oriented; and it also is interpreted so you don't have to spend time compiling while you're practicing. I'm new to development; and may pursue iOS dev, web app development in a more advanced language like Scala, or may stick with Javascript. Whatever I pursue I think Python is a good place to start.

    I have signed up through Mechanical MOOC too. But never received an email. Any clue when the course begins?
