A student at the Open University.

When I have a problem I actually only have a challenge. I will challenge myself to find a solution.  – Richard Cook

A university for the full time employed -> The logical choice is the UK Open University

In order to get started, I have begun a BSc (Honours) Computing and IT (Software) with the Open University in the UK. This was the choice I made because I am full time employed (standard call centre work) and want to stay employed whilst I study.

Though my years I have investigated in many programming languages from C#, Java and Python. Unfortunately, I have never completed a complete learning of any of these languages.

With the Open University, I will complete a study of programming languages Java, Python and Javascript including also web technologies as HTML5 and CSS.

  • Java is the main Object Orientated language we will use.
  • Python is used in our algorithm module.
  • Javascript, HTML5 and CSS will be studied in our web technologies module.
