The goal of this course is to provide a starting point to programming in 2 popular programming languages.
The course consists of 2 independent sub-courses
Select whatever start.
Covered Basics: data types, variables, operators, selection, and while loops.
No intention to go far from that. The goal is to see these concepts in 2 languages.
By the end of the journey, you will have
Fair understanding of the very basics of the 2 languages
Ability to decide which language to focus on it more.
Visit my profile and select the course of interest to dive deeper. Ihave deeper courses in more than a language
Mastering 4 critical skills series from my profile will aim to master the 4 most important skills for a programmer
Problem-solving skills:rarely covered by other courses
Project building skills: partially covered by other courses
Design skills:rarely covered by other courses
7+ times practice & homework compare to other courses + 6 projects
My other courses avoid the common complaints such as
Limited topics coverage.
Unnecessary long videos with repetitions.
Too much time to explain basic concepts.
A sudden jump in the level. I can't cope with the content.
Assumptions of previous knowledge to understand some of the concepts.
Building over concepts that were not mastered through practice or homework.
The same examples are used over and over.
Several consecutive lectures without practice or homework to master the concepts.
Awesome knowledge, almost zero skills.
Very little practice or homework.
Good homework in the first half and very weak in the remaining.
Many homework without solutions.
Only one project.
Long but tedious project.
The project doesn't help enforce the concepts.
Project source code is not provided. I needed to compare and learn.
Moving to Datastructures or Algorithms course was not easy. Weak problem-solving skills.
After the course, I am still stuck and can't do even simple projects. Weak project-building skills.
The course taught OOP syntax and concepts nicely, but OOD skills are not built. Weak design-skills.
Enjoy learning programming in a smooth way :)
