    I'm a bit confused as to what is considered sufficient prior programming experience, and I would like to ask any current or future Computing Science students to help me in this matter with their advise/opinion . For the past two years I studied Java during my IB higher level CS class, and also dabbled a bit with C# during the beginning of the whole IB DP. I have also studied computer science before hand, not programming per se, but theory, and web coding in school, and on my own.
    I have been mostly considering going for the prior programming experience route, but since Python is the first language we are taught, and I have never experimented with that language, I started to consider the other option as well.I'm just interested in what others think, and which route they took/ or will take.
    Thanks

    Hey, I'm a 4th year Comp Sci student at UoG.

    Given you have experience in Java and C#, I would definitely go with the prior-programming route. I think the class is CS1P (unless it's changed since I did it). I had very little programming experience before the start of my degree, and was perfectly fine with the "prior experience" route.

    If you have even very basic programming skills, you will find the class very easy.
