In addition to the unit already mentioned, there is a kickstarter project on a micropython PCB, see

http://www.micropython.org/

I've got one on the way via kickstarter, but they should be readily available soon.

Echoing aruunaka's comment, I took the last session of the Rice MOOC and found it to be engaging, challenging and a lot of fun.  The teaching cadre is very dedicated and they put a lot of thought into the material and pedagogy. 

It wasn't easy but was well worth the time invested.

Woohoo! Thanks for the micropython link. Not a particular fan of Python but that effort stands out. It fits perfectly into a current project. Only drawback I can see is using a 405 insead of a 407 and maybe a bigger package and both are trivial. They are one fast micro.

And a big thanks to Jeremy for the topic. :)

Let's see more blogs on these types of offerings and learners experiences.

For example, I find a couple of the Cryptography online classes to be excellent.

Perhaps we should get a sub-forum going on onle class recomendations- like book reviews!

Thank you, I plan to enroll in that one. I finished a Python course from CIE Bookstore (http://www.ciebookstore.com/python-programming-course) but I want one that is a little more geared for the intoductory level.

I heard the Rice University program is very well done.

Python is a very interesting language to learn. Just another tip here, recently Coursera.org conducted 8-9 weeks of python course for beginners through Rice University. I have to admit that being a non programmer, I could learn the structure of coding and understood that I have to work on syntax. But the approach to teach was great.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is interested.

Also, there is a webbased code that works in the cloud for one to use the code.

after reading this, I think I may just have to give python another try!

This looks pretty interesting, I'd enjoy hearing someone's experience with it.
