I think a course in TWs & Programming would be very helpful. Too,
specific courses in languages and their use in constructing programs
would be helpful.

I'm signed up to take C++ From Scratch: Intro to C++ Programming" from
Ziff-Davis University ( It's supposed to teach you
C++, but it doesn't require you to know any other language. I'm taking
it to help understand how our applications are built. I'll let y'all
know how it goes.

Yes, we as TWs _must_ understand how software works. If we don't, we
as a profession wither and die....(IMO).
