    About this course

    This course is designed as an introduction for anyone looking to gain a basic understanding of computer programming.

    This course is designed as introduction to programming and programming concepts.

    For starters, you’ll learn the most common Command Line Interface and Operating System commands for both Windows- and Linux-based computers.

    You’ll then move on to explore the structure of a simple computer program, identifying the purpose of each part. You’ll examine variables, and you’ll dive into the role of functions.

    You’ll then become familiar with the design process behind writing a computer program. You’ll explore program flow, decision making, and looping. Moving on, you’ll examine how algorithms and flowcharts are used in computer program design, and you’ll examine the three programming concepts of sequence, selection, and repetition.

    As you progress through the course, you’ll learn the most common best practices for designing and developing software documentation. And you’ll learn best practices for writing and documenting your source code.

    Finally, you’ll learn best practice for implementing security within your applications. And you’ll learn how to test and debug your code to eliminate potential errors.
