wow, I fully agree. I had tried a number of MOOCs and avenues for leaning to code. I had really struggled, to learn Python in particular and the University of Toronto courses, and the Rice course were surprisingly and absolutely the best courses that really taught me what it meant to be somewhat competent to code, and code in Python. I would not have predicted that, given all the big school offerings available. I would also add in Learn Python the Hard Way as very useable intro. thanks.
