    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Programming teaches the basic thought process of logic. While it teaches other tools to use in software such as C++ or Python, it mainly develops the foundation for thinking about things in a simple form. Methods such as "If/Else" statements are used in practically every decision ever made, but its mechanic is not thought of.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are definitely the projects. You get to employ what you learn in various projects that test your knowledge. The EECS staff is also very helpful and only want you to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start the projects and assignments early. The projects cannot be done in 2, 3, 4, or even 5 hours. They often require upwards of 10 hours.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great class which provided the basics for C++ and Python; it is perfect to spark interest in programming in previous non-programmers! Very good intro course with fun and engaging projects!

    Course highlights:

    The final project, where teams could select their own area to create a project in (whether that was arduino, artificial intelligence, or gaming)! Students can develop their skills in areas of their choosing; it was a great way to introduce applications of code!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To always stay updated on the reading assignments and to not skip out on lecture--it seems simple enough, but lectures and concepts build upon the foundations so it is important to understand and practice.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class does such an amazing job of driving home the basic concepts of 2 major languages, leaving students to have the skills necessary to complete very complex projects on their own. The overall culture of the class is conducive of pushing yourself to the max of your potential and learning to work with your peers like real computer scientists do.

    Course highlights:

    The projects of this course were definitely the highlight, it's so rewarding to get the feedback from the autograder with a 50/50. The course does a great job of providing feedback of your code and once you get it right it really makes you want to continue on with these concepts. The showcase at the end of the year is so amazing as you get to see everyone's individual interpretation of the projects with all of these amazing companies sponsoring the event. Really makes you feel like part of the largest community on campus.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, that's all I can say. Not going to lie, the concepts can be EXTREMELY difficult to comprehend right off the bat. Doing and re-doing the zyante readings and pushing through the (admittedly atrocious) CodeLab assignment are going to solidify the foundations of the content of this course. Get started on the projects early as well! Make the most of your autograder submissions and make sure you get that 50/50, it really will make a difference.
