Introduction to Computer Programming, Part 1

Les cours commencent le 29 juillet !

This 6-week course provides students with a foundation in computer programming.

This is the first of a two-part course, and corresponds to the first half of the Computer Programming course CS101 at IIT Bombay. In this part, basic concepts of computer programming are introduced starting with the notion of an algorithm. Emphasis is on developing the ability to write programs to solve practical computational problems. Topics include:

Elements of C/C++ programming languages
Basic data types
Sequential and conditional execution
Iterative solutions
Arrays, matrices, and their applications
Sorting and searching
Elements of string processing
Introduction to pointers
Basics of Software Engineering.
Participants will get to read and understand many sample programs, and will have to write several on their own. This course deals with procedural programming, and attempts to inculcate good programming practices in a novice programmer.
