Introduction to Programming – ed2go online class!
Take your first steps toward a career as a computer programmer! In this course, you'll learn to use Just BASIC, a free Windows programming language, to create stand-alone applications for professional or personal use.
As you explore the BASIC programming language, you'll learn how to work with graphical user interfaces, controls, variables, arrays, conditional logic, and loops. You'll also examine subroutines, functions, and debugging. After that, you'll discover how to add sound and graphics to your Just BASIC programs. To reinforce the concepts in each lesson, you'll create a working computer-game application.
Even if you've never programmed before, you'll find it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions in each lesson. By the end of the course, you'll have the skills and confidence you need to program in BASIC and design your own custom applications for home, school, or work.
Intermediate C# Programming
Build upon your current knowledge of programming logic by writing Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications in the C# programming language. This course will show you how to write professional looking applications with many of the common GUI controls, such as buttons, labels, text boxes, check boxes, and radio buttons. You'll also learn how to put menus and toolbars into your program to make them easier to use. And later in the course, you'll find out how to make your program interact with sequential files, random access files, and databases.
This six-week course will walk you through computer application design and implementation by giving you real examples that you can enter as you learn. Since practicing is the best way to learn programming, most lessons have more than one example, and each provides a programming problem you can solve to demonstrate your new knowledge.
Introduction to C++ Programming
Here's your chance to learn how to program the easy way in C++. Introduction to C++ Programming is a project-oriented course taught by a master programming instructor and published author. You'll get right to programming in this course--even if you have no prior programming experience! Before you know it, you'll be putting together programs that have their own windows and controls, and you'll see how easy programming really is.
Wondering how programming can be easy? Professional programmers write programs that model the world around us. When you work with the system (instead of fight against it) everything becomes easier. So in this course, you'll look at how the world is built up by objects--things that have qualities and capabilities, and then you'll use that information as you write your computer program. You'll be following the actual technique professional programmers use to build their programs. By the end of the course, you'll be using Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express Edition to write real programs for Microsoft Windows.
