Course Description

If you have no experience in software development, the act of writing code may be unfamiliar or mysterious. In this course we'll introduce you to the basic concepts of how code is written, strip away some of that mystery, and show you that writing software is often an exercise in iterative problem solving. This course is not focused on any one specific computer language: your instructor may use examples from JavaScript, C#, Python, and several other languages.
