June News: CS Course Release & Free to Repair
June 30, 2016 / Issue 1, Vol. 3
June's newsletter is skidding in for landing on the last day of June. My apologies to everyone for the delay. I've been working hard on getting our online computer science classes up and running. Thanks for your patience and on with the newsletter:

Free to Repair If you spend your hard earned dollars on a device that you depend on daily, don't you want to own it? If you are only going to be allowed to lease it (meaning that you can't make any significant alterations or do any repairs) then wouldn't you expect to pay less for it?
End Of Free Windows 10 We are finally nearing the end of the Windows 10 free upgrade offer after many months of great expectations and great frustrations. I use the word “offer” while clenching my teeth. In the beginning, Microsoft said we could upgrade when we were ready. I assumed that meant that if we didn't want to update during the free session, we didn't have to. The latest rounds of spontaneous upgrades has proved me wrong.
If you want to upgrade for free and haven't already done so, make sure you complete your upgrade before July 29th.
Computer Science Online Courses Level One of our Basics of Computer Science online courses is now available. Level One includes: -An explanation of what computer science is and isn’t -A description of the main fields and departments of computer science -The jobs forecast for computer science professionals -A quick introduction to electronics basics and the basic working parts of a computer -History of the computer -An overview of our modern use of computers for communication
For the 4th of July holiday and our celebration of Independence, the price of this course will be reduced to $10 through the July 4th. After July 4th, it will go back to its original price of $25.
Also, Level Two of the course will be released in July. This next level dives into the heart of computer science with a study of electricity, circuitry, binary language, and an introduction to Boolean logic.
Don't get left behind in the race for the fastest growing jobs!
