Applied Programming

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Computer programming (often shortened to programming) is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs. Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation (commonly referred to as coding) of algorithms in a target programming language.[1]

This course is comprised of 13 lessons on applied programming. Each lesson includes a combination of Wikipedia and Internet-based readings, YouTube videos, and hands-on, interactive learning activities. It is an extension of the Python Programming course, intended to apply the same programming concepts using a variety of programming languages.
