  4. Hi! I wanted to add in my contribution so I made a post to a couple of groups on Facebook that I follow to help support this resource. One group , CS50 taught via Harvard Uni., which has over 3,000 members and another, Web Dev group with over 300 members. If you see a spike in your member registration after today, know that it was me who caused it 😛 hahaha. I love what you guys are doing here and I hope you guys continue indefinitely but feel are quite underrated. Hope what I did helped!
