Introduction to programming - 1 day
This course covers the basic concepts, fundamental syntax and process of writing any computer program.
The information is generic; it's not specific to any single programming language. Programming exercises are usually done in Python. If required, we can tailor the exercises to other languages, such as Java, C/C++ or VBA.
It is equally relevant to Unix, Unix-like operating systems and Microsoft Windows.
Upon successful completion of this course you will:
- Be able to describe what the key components of a computer program are.
- Describe the steps in the creation of a computer program.
- Describe the role of the interpreter and the compiler.
- Describe how to run a program.
- Explain the meaning of basic programming terms such as variable, array, test, loop and subroutine.
- Write simple programs.
- be ready for our Introduction to Python, Perl, Java or other programming courses.
This course is aimed at people who are familiar with computers, but who don't have any formal programming experience.
This course is a useful course to take before the introductory level of a specific programming language courses, such as Introduction to Python or Introduction to Java.
It is a useful course for those that don't have any programming experience, but need the necessary foundations and concepts to start.
