Back to school for the summer? [Jun. 22nd, 2009|01:01 pm]
Ron Newman
Tonight, I'll be attending the first session of Harvard Summer School's CSCI S-75 Building Dynamic, Scalable Websites class. The official course website, http://cs75.net , today still seems to be in transition from the Extension School version (a full 4 month academic term) to the Summer School version (just 7 intense weeks).

The class is quite expensive, $2500 plus late registration fees, so I'd better be sure I want it before I register. Fortunately, I have until Thursday to make this decision.

Harvard's Continuing Education division has been good for me in the past. I wouldn't have gotten my most recent job if it weren't for CSCI E-253 Developing Web-Based Database Applications which I took in Spring 2003 (after my last layoff). I also got a lot out of CSCI E-153 Web Development Using XML in Fall 2002, though my skills in that area may have atrophied some from subsequent disuse.

Seemed good so far, but I still need to think overnight about actually paying for this and enrolling in it. I know I'm smart enough to learn this stuff without a class, but I think I need the structure and interaction that the class provides.
