Programming and app development for the complete newbie – Learn how to program and use programming creatively.
What is programming, and how to write a computer program? It’s often the case that beginners who’d like to learn to program don’t know where to start or even what they are looking for. This course was designed for any novice looking to learn about programming and computers in general. Here, you’ll learn everything you need to get started with programming, the basics you need to know to start learning independently. You don’t need to know anything about computers to get started – this guide will cover all important topics and introduce the most important programming topics.
Each lecture is conceived in such a way to provide new and interesting insight into how programming could be used not as a replacement career but as a supplement to another. Besides being a useful tool in the modern technologically dominated society, programming can be an interesting and fun way to expand your creative endeavors.
Absolute beginner’s guide to programming and computers is a course designed for the complete beginner. Unlike most standard programming courses, it minimizes the use of math and tech-heavy vocabulary. It provides simple and relatable examples of programming, building a real understanding of writing a computer program and providing the student with actual usable skills within a minimal timeframe.
The course is presented in such a way to allow you to build your skills independently. In this guide, you will learn how to read the documentation and find answers if you ever get stuck with a programming problem. This way, the student who finishes the course understands the basics of the key branches of software development and can further advance and research on their own.
Although focusing on specific technologies can create experts in a specialized field, most professionals switch between many different technologies during their careers. Still, despite this constant switching, core ideas always remain, even when the details of a specific technology or platform have been forgotten. Instead of teaching details that could be forgotten when a new technology emerges, this absolute beginner’s guide focuses on exactly those principles that are used across different technologies.
The course touches upon many topics while presenting only the most important material. It starts light and gradually introduces more advanced concepts while using little to no tech-focused vocabulary and nothing but elementary school math.
Who this course is for:
- Creative individuals looking to learn the basics of programming and app development
- People with no prior experience with either programming or computers who want to broaden their knowledge
- Individuals from other disciplines who want to know what software development is about and whether they could be good at it
- Anyone looking to “get into” programming.
