Foundations of Computer Programming

reqkeyWant to code, without going to college?

Designed for the beginner with little or no experience, this class covers basic coding, application design, website programming, and game creation. Our hands-on instructors will walk you through application development, and help you build the necessary vocabulary to share your thoughts and ideas with your teammates and other professionals.

Each student will be able to practice coding projects on their private “sandbox” in the cloud, with real time feedback from instructors. In the class, students will: design functional websites with multiple pages and applications, understand and apply the principles of object-oriented programming (the most common type), and learn the foundations of programming in languages including Java, HTML, CSS, Basic, DOS, Basic Linux and basic JavaScript.
