The course was fine, it's not a very hard topic. However, the professor wasn't great. Often times we would be given a project that required some more advanced programming techniques than those we had learned. Those who didn't have prior programming experience definitely were at a disadvantage.
It was an introduction to computer programming in C++, covering up to classes and functions. Didn't go into data structures.
