Programming is currently one of the more in-demand skills that the technology sector is asking for. Large companies such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft are constantly, looking for competent programmers to build websites, enterprise software, internal tools, and more. This course aims to be a good entry point into the world of programming by teaching the very basics of how to build a simple program. The intention is that using the tools that you acquire in this course, you will feel more confident in writing snippets of code to solve tasks and eventually interest you enough to move on to more advanced programming courses.
To achieve this, we will be using videos from MIT's Open Courseware Series (http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm) along with some other videos and sites created by fellow programmers. The videos will be using Python as the programming language of choice as it is a fairly easy yet very powerful language to pick up. Most of the concepts we will learn here will apply to all languages even though we will be implementing them in Python.
