IT Fundamentals for Business Professionals: Programming

Universitat Politècnica de València via edX

Overview

This course is one of the 5 courses of an introductory business information systems series, designed to introduce you to the amazing world of Information Technology.

The series of courses is designed so that a professional in a field outside the information technologies (financial, administrative or managerial) acquires the basic knowledge in Information Technology to be able to interact more profitably with the computer and telecommunications specialists of your company or other corporations with which you are related, being able to specify requirements, evaluate workloads and monitor results in a much more effective way.

The syllabus of the series is based on the CLEP Information Systems and Computer Applications exam.

In this course you will learn the basics of software programming. We will address the basic logic behind any computer program, what types and structures of data and files are used, how object-oriented programming works, database management and SQL language and various concepts and guidelines in web development such as HTML, XML, CSS or javascript, among others.

By completing the series of 5 courses, you will be prepared to interact effectively with specialists in the Information Technology sector (and pass the CLEP ISCA exam if you wish).

    The course is high level and very easy to understand. Useful for discussing programming with the IT & development teams, particularly as it pertains to website development.

    This course is mostly an introductory one and suitable for beginners. The lessons are clearly and concisely organized, followed by small quizzes to help you reflect on the knowledge you just learned. I recommend taking the Practice tests right after you're done with the lessons, that way you can actually remember better. I really love the way the teacher explains the lessons, her delivery is on point. That being said, this is just an introductory course so there isn't any practical exercises (writing codes, implementing data etc.) as you move along. However, when you reach the end you'll be able to experiment with Amazon cloud server, which is pretty cool.

    The course was tough actually. I'm actually not a student of computer science so everything was basic for me. I found it tough but the teacher taught it in a best manner. I understood some of the topics not all because i found some topics very new and couldn't understand them. But I'm okay with it. I'll take a new course regarding progrmming which would be more practical base so I can have an idea about these topics which I have learned here. At the end I would like to say keep it up. You are doing it well. Thanks.

    This is the MUST TO DO course if you want to learn programming, specially whether you don't have object oriented paradigm, databases and web programming background. It really covers step by step the fundamentals of the technology behind the programming and design of web development so do not hesitate to learn from this course even if you have already background in some programming language. It is not just for Business professionals!!

    I had very little experience about technology and programming. This course gave me a lot of essential concepts that it will ceirtanly make it easier to apply the techniques later on, when I start programming for real.
    If you want 'hands on the job' this is not a course for you, but if you are interested on the foundations of programming, this will be excellent.
    Highly recommend for beginners!

    great introduction! No prior CS experience. I have learned a lot in regards to the general ideas that go into the way computers work as well as the basics of web development through html, css, and Javascript. This was my intention in taking this class in the first place, and this course effectively communicated the information which i was interested in.

    It was a little hard for me because this was my first introduction to Programming, other than that the course was very well paced with very talented teachers. Thanks for the opportunity.
