New Hakeslet: online courses (Java, SICP, Objective-C, etc.) in Russian

    Hello, Habr! Last fall, I opened Hakeslet, an educational project with free online programming courses in Russian. A week later , the first course started - Development for OS X. It was a very interesting experience, but many mistakes were made in the development of this project. Today, I am pleased to announce the restart of Hakeslet! What awaits you:

    • New site and convenient, fast engine. There were so many problems with the old one that many students simply could not use it normally.
    • Improved course format. In the first version, I tried to emulate a physical university on the Internet, but I had to do an online course initially.
    • Personal communication with the teacher. I want to make this feature an important difference from other educational projects.
    • New, interesting courses and plans for future courses.

    Already now you can enroll in the first three courses:

    1. Java Application Development
    2. The structure and interpretation of computer programs (SICP)
    3. OS X Development
