This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of computer programming. It is designed for students with no prior programming experience. The goals of the course are to learn how to use the fundamental building blocks of a programming language and to get practice in the several steps of algorithm and software development. By the end of the course you should have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science and the Java programming language.
You will first learn the basic principles of programming: data types, variables, statements, assignments, control statements, loops, file input/output, arrays, methods, objects, classes, etc. We will use Java, a high-level, cross-platform, and well-constructed computer programming language to demonstrate those principles. Further on, you will acquire skills and get practice in the several steps of basic algorithm and software development: from a description of the problem, to an idea about an approach and justified data structures, and finally the translation of the approach into an implemented program.
