North Face Learning

Phil Windley refers to North Face Learning as a pioneer in accelerated computer science education.

The kind of acceleration described by Philip Greenspun is desirable.

My concern about what little information is available at the North Face Learning web site is whether the curriculum is computer science in general or simply training on today's popular hardware and software technologies. The industry needs more people who can deeply think and create to lift us out of this technological lull and into a real Cambrian Explosion that puts previous (and not really technological) Dot Bomb Era to shame.

If North Face Learning can pull that off I will be impressed.
