About the instructor: Dustin Laurence first learned to program in 8-bit BASIC and 6502 assembly, but ever since he encountered K&R C on a VAX running DEC Ultrix in college he has claimed C as his native tongue. He first learned to engineer software rather than simply code in pre-ANSI C++. Dustin spent more time than he cares to admit doing theoretical physics, and brings to programming a physicist’s eye for finding and generalizing underlying rules and a relentless desire to understand the big picture. He thinks the only truly bad programming language is one that does not teach you something you can use in other languages. He avoids social media for the same reason he doesn't do crack cocaine.

Very personal approach to teaching. We are bored to death with PowerPoint slides. Most of the class was hands on.
