About the course
Who is the course for?
The course is aimed at absolute beginners who have no experience in programming, or who have only been working with languages such as HTML and CSS before. However, you should have confidence with basic computer functionality, such as typing, using the mouse, opening and saving files, etc.
What will be taught
Why should I take this course?
The aim of this short course is to give you a better understanding of how computers work and how you can make them work for you. It won’t turn you into a coder straight away, but it will put you on the right path for further study. But even if you don’t want to become a professional programmer, having an idea of how computer programs work and being able to script small tasks might come in handy in your everyday life. Besides, programming is known to improve your strategic thinking and structuring abilities.
A laptop (Mac, Windows or Linux) with:
- A decent text editor. We recommend:
- Windows: EditPad Lite, Notepad++, Sublime Text (all free)
- Mac: Text Wrangler (free), Sublime Text (free), Coda (££)
- Linux: Gedit, KompoZer, Sublime Text (all free, of course)
- An up to date web browser. We recommend Firefox, Opera or Chrome, but Internet Explorer and Safari are fine.
