[p2pu-webcraft] CS Courses besides WebCraft

As an engineering student and P2PU Webcraft course organizer, my thought
is that you could have resources on diyomputerscience.com and use courses
on P2PU to reach out to non-technical people and guide them through which
resources to use, forming study groups, that sort of thing

How separate are your CS course ideas from the principles of the School of
Webcraft?  There are a lot of languages and programs which you could
connect to web content.
