I have absolutely no background in any programming of any kind. Will this tutorial be able to help me, or should I first learn basic?
Just a little constructive criticism here, because I do like what you are doing.
The technical writer in me would really like to see bullet points, steps, and different font variations for calling out command line input. Your first and third articles were good about that with the code highlighting, the second article was a bit too paragraph focused for me to follow well as a set of instructions. Some screenshots and illustrations would be really great too to help follow along.
