Hello, world! This is CS50, with David J. Malan, Rob Bowden, Zamyla Chan, Jason Hirshhorn, et al.
CS50 is Harvard University's introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming for majors and non-majors alike, a one-semester amalgam of courses generally known as CS1 and CS2.
Here is CS50's first lecture, shot at 4K in anamorphic 2.39:1 widescreen in Harvard's Sanders Theatre. And here is CS50 Live, CS50's biweekly episodic content produced live in Harvard's Hauser Studio.
