    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course highlights the start of basic programming. San Jose State is in the heart of the Silicon Valley so it's more relevant here, but in today's modern world, basic programming skills will give insight on how computers work and how programs are run.

    Course highlights:

    I learned basic levels of Java, a simple programming language. It's simple because of its direct though process involved when creating programs. Another basic language is Python. Java and Python are two of the most simple programming languages that are taught to beginners and in introduction courses. Java allowed me to understand what's really behind programs in a computer.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must read ahead to know what the professor is referring to. If you try and show up to class and take notes as your professor lectures, you might lose where the professor is at, and this will lead to confusion. As you think about where you got lost, your professor will only lecture further away from where you are. Stay alert, and stay ahead!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is mainly on the individual, the professor is that just to help and provide information. It's a class where students have to think and preform heavily by themselves.

    Course highlights:

    This course tests an individual's ability to adapt and think of solutions. Through this class, I learned that I am quite proficient in understanding and then using that understanding to solve problems that have numerous approaches to it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Not an easy course, it depends on the individual. Understanding is key in this class, if you don't have a background in coding, it could be quite difficult. That doesn't mean you shouldn't work in groups but the classes tests individual strengths rather than group strengths.
