    My name is Cameron Pittman too, but I’m actually a girl in high school. I’ve never taken physics though. Sorry if this is a bit weird, but I was just googling myself and you popped up

    Are you still up and running? As a teacher extremely interested in getting involved in using Portal 2 in the classroom just how do you get started, It seems Steam no longer supports this free initiative as I have contacted them several times bu to no avail. Do you have nay insight about this?

    • Hi Frank. Unfortunately, I’m no longer up and running. It’s been almost two years since I last taught with Portal or contacted Valve. Sorry I can’t be more help.

    Hey Cameron! I’m currently taking your JS course on Udacity. I’m really sorry for bugging you on this site. I’ pretty good with HTML and CSS. I’m learning JS right now, with Harvard’s CS50 course on edX. SO should I still take the Udacity course cs101?
    And could you please give me some links to courses that I should take to improve my Web Dev skills?
