    this is really helpful. I am extremely new to coding. however does anyone know what he wrote to get 333? @ 49:47 he said he multiplied a string and 3 but the video on that part isn't quite clear and I'm trying to figure it out by typing in what I think he wrote but I'm not getting 333. can someone please help? I'm sure this will come up again in some way and I'd like to know what exactly is he typing. thanks all, happy coding!

    Its so cool how dedicated MIT is to access to knowledge. There is only so much campus, so the admissions process is tough. But MIT pioneered MOOCs, open courseware, open software, microcredentials, and so on. Im not in anyway affiliated wit MIT, but Im a big supporter.

    Wow, he really said "John or I." This MIT professor's grammar is abysmal.

    I realize he’s an MIT professor, but the proper grammar would be, “talk to me or John.” Everyone uses the pronoun “I” in most every case because they believe it’s always correct, and that’s how intelligent people speak. That’s not always true though. Rule of thumb: remove the other person from the sentence, and it should still make sense grammatically; e.g., “talk to me.”

    Interesting lecture, nonetheless. I appreciate the free public access.

    If anyone out there is reading this in 2021…
    Is this information still relevant? Or is there a lot of information that would be missing to be relevant to today?
    I would love to watch the video series, but only if the information given is still useful and not out dated. I have 0 knowledge of computer science.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
