This course is about learning to program well: building programs that are elegant, well tested and easy to maintain. The course is designed for students with no programming experience at all. Nonetheless, former students who already knew how to program have said it made them better programmers. Phones, diesel engines, animated newspapers, medical devices, games, political campaigns, medical research, mining, transportation systems, … and so on, and on, and on… every day more of the world around us is at least partly run by computer programs. This means that being able to design programs - or at least be able to work with people who design programs - is becoming a more and more valuable skill. To build your own programs you need to know two things: how to use the specific programming language and libraries needed, and the more general skill of how to design a program.
