    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introduction to computer programming and coding. Professor Newby did an outstanding job not only conveying the core concepts but also ensuring that students had a good grasp of the material with assignments that helped stress the important learning points of each chapter.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest highlights of the course was having Visual Studio, an expensive compiler program, included for free with admission into the class. Beyond that, it did a great job of not only showing how to use said program, but provide a solid foundation for learning the basics of coding that can then be applied towards future projects in that field. Even though my major does not require much more in the way of coding, the things I learned in this class have energized me to continue pursuing projects in the programming field in my personal time into the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class was not that hard to succeed in. Honestly, the biggest piece of advice I have for future students taking this course is to stay on top of your work. Submit every assignment, and take the extra credit quizzes. If you can do this everything else will fall into place and you'll find your way to an easy A or B.

    Course Overview:

    Be patient, read the book, take careful notes, don't give up! The instructor is very helpful if you ask. :)

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basic of C++ programming.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't give up! Seek help if needed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jay is a great and enthusiastic teacher. He entered the world of programming without any experience, and is excited to give advice to further a career, or to find an out-of-the-box solution.

    Course highlights:

    I never took an Intro to Programming course, but it wasn't necessary in this class. The book used is fantastic, with oodles of challenges and questions to check how critical your reading is. The answers are included as well, for the basic questions. Jay's input was vital to the course as well. I don't think I'd have learned nearly as much if I'd just read the book.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay up to date with your coursework. If you fall behind or struggle with a concept, read and reread the chapter. Every item learned in this course builds upon those before it. These are core concepts for every language. Don't be intimidated by the huge blocks of code. It will make sense, I promise.
