Overview

Programming is relevant to both computing professionals and individuals who wish to be more than end-users. The topics in the course will allow students to learn programming in Python, but should also develop skills transferrable to other languages, paradigms and contexts. The course is appropriate for students wishing to have only a single exposure to programming, but is also sufficient for students intending to complete further programming instruction.

This course covers foundational programming knowledge (including language syntax and facilities) as well as strategies which allow programmers to apply such knowledge to solve programming problems. Students will learn to analyse and comprehend existing programs and create solutions to programming problems individually and in teams by generating programs which apply programming strategies covered in the course.
