Programming For Absolute Beginners

Code: OLRN1740

Course description

Designed for those who have never written a computer program before, students, working at a relaxed pace, will learn how to store information in the computer (variables), how to determine what the computer does next (if-else statements, while statements, and simple functions), and how to get information into and out of the computer (printf and scanf statements). Other topics will be included as time permits. Upon successful completion of the course, students will have a general understanding of how computer programs work. You will need access to a C compiler for this course. It is available through a free download - information is on the course site.
