This course introduces students to writing computer programs. The class presents the principles of structured programming using the Python® language, one of the most increasingly preferred languages for programming today. Because of its ease of use, it is ideal as a first programming language and runs on both the PC and Macintosh platforms. The course is designed for people without previous programming experience who do not necessarily plan on becoming professional programmers. However, the knowledge gained in the class can be applied later to other languages such as C and Java®. Participants learn to solve problems logically by breaking them into smaller pieces, which can then be solved. The course uses standard Python to afford a more interactive experience. Topics include: introduction to computing - how does a computer work?; input and output - getting information to and from the user; variables and expressions - performing arithmetic; data statements - reading information from inside the program; text files - reading information from other files; arrays - groups of variables; debugging - finding errors in your program; graphics; and formatting - changing how things look on the screen.

The course presents the principles of object-oriented programming using the Python® language, one of the most increasingly preferred languages for programming today. Python is a high-level general-purpose programming language that is portable and used on different systems to include UNIX and Mac—it is platform independent. Python has been touted as one of the most powerful and easy to learn programming languages. The course addresses syntax, types, variables, strings, branching, loops, tuples, lists, dictionaries, functions, files, exceptions and other related concepts and terms in an effort to establish a solid foundation for more advanced programming using structured language. The course will also provide both conceptual and scenario based exercises, thus enabling students to experience the maximum amount of comprehension and retention of material covered. The Python interpreter is available online for free. This software is not provided by the course material grant and must be purchased/ provided by the student.

This course is an introductory study of mobile application design and development and how enhanced mobile devices are changing the face of technology. The course begins with some introductory concepts to lay the foundation for more advanced topics, such as regarding development platforms, cross-platform development, mobile operating systems, the mobile web, The Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence in mobile apps. Also, the course will cover a theoretical overview of mobile application, design and development issues, and practical application concerns. Conceptual and scenario-based exercises will be used to reinforce student learning in the course. To do well in this course, students will need introductory-level programming experience and/or knowledge; no specific programming language is required.
