Curious about programming? Ready to "write" your first lines of code? If so, this is the class for you!
Programming is a fun and creative act that opens up many career opportunities. Programming jobs are exciting and always evolving. Anyone can learn to program and it's easier to get started than you think. This class is designed for those with little to no programming background (technical background not required).
In this course, you will learn the basics of the programming by using Alice (alice.org). It's a drag & drop programming environment that is similar to Java and will ease the transition to Java syntax. We will cover the fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and you will walk away with a foundation that will allow you to learn any type of programming language, including Android development.
Bring your laptop and get ready to learn all about development!
