Learn to program in an easy and interactive way and enter the fascinating world of computer science.

This is an introductory course to learn programming with Java designed to teach how to code good programs in Java, understanding “good” as both correct and efficient. Basic principles of software engineering will be introduced to make it easier for our future self and others to reuse code. Ethical issues and the intellectual property of our programs will also be addressed in the last part of this course. Examples and case studies will be provided, so that learners can implement simple but increasingly complex programs in Java.

Emphasis is put on immediate feedback and on having a fun experience. Programming knowledge is not only useful to be able to program today’s devices such as computers and smartphones. It also opens the door to computational thinking, i.e. the application of computing techniques to every-day processes.

This course is designed taking into account the subset and recommendations of the College Board in order to prepare learners for the Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science A exam..

What will you learn

  • Detect and correct common programming errors at compile time
  • Detect and correct common programming errors at run time using debugging tools
  • Check that the program does what it has to using unit testing processes
  • Compare the efficiency of two programs in terms of the resources used
  • Model simple programs using basic software engineering techniques
  • Determine if a program has been developed respecting ethical considerations
