CS For All: Introduction to Computer Science and Python Programming

Harvey Mudd College via edX


Looking to get started with computer science while learning to program in Python?

This computer science course provides an introduction to computer science that’s both challenging and fun. It takes a broad look at the field of computer science through a variety of demonstrations and projects. We’ll cover both low- and high-level concepts, from how the circuits inside a computer represent data to how to design algorithms, as well as how all of this information affects the technology we use today. Additionally, we’ll teach the basics of Python programming, giving us a a way to put our new CS knowledge into practice.

No need to know any programming before starting the course; we’ll teach everything you need to know along the way. All you need to start is a good grasp of algebra, and you can fall in love with both the concepts and the practice of computer science.

    This course, in word, is EXCELLENT! I loved the course. It covers the breadth of Computer Science by teaching concepts such as Assembly and circuits. Also, it covers the Python programming language in considerable detail.

    I recommend all beginners to go through this course along with Harvard's CS50.
  • A really excellent course - well delivered, informative and insightful. I would highly recommend this for anyone working within the education space, whether a new practitioner or experienced.
