The pricing for Intro to Programming is unique to this program, and does not apply to any other program.
There are no additional pricing promotions currently available.

We don't recommend it. Chromebooks are not designed to be developer machines, and many common developer tools — such as major text editors, Python, and the Linux shell – all of which are used in this course — are not available for Chrome OS – at least via the usual routes. If it's your only option, we'll try and help you make it work, because we want you to succeed! However, we recommend getting a true developer machine if you want to pursue programming professionally.
