Introduction to High-Level Programming
An introduction to high-level computer programming languages covering their basis in mathematics and logic. This course will guide students through the elements that compose any programming language including expressions, control of flow, data structures, and modularity via functions and/or objects. Covers traditional and contemporary programming paradigms including sequential, event-based, and object-oriented programming.
Students will also work towards writing code that integrates the graphical user interface, multiple input/output modes, and network connected computers. The course will culminate in web application programming in light of the emerging possibilities of Web 2.0. Programming style, multi-person programming projects, and debugging strategies will be covered as well.
