Course Description

Once you understand basic data types --numbers, strings, and Booleans-- you can see how they can be used together. Programs usually need to describe things using several of these data types. All computer programming languages have a way to define new data types, which are composed of a list of the basic data types. These new data types are known as composite data types. This course is not focused on any one specific computer language: your instructor may use examples from JavaScript, C#, Python, and several other languages.
