Course Description

This course provides the core knowledge to begin programming in any language. Simon Allardice uses JavaScript to explore the core syntax of a programming language, and shows how to write and execute your first application and understand what's going on under the hood. The course covers creating small programs to explore conditions, loops, variables, and expressions; working with different kinds of data and seeing how they affect memory; writing modular code; and how to debug, all using different approaches to constructing software applications. Finally, the course compares how code is written in several different languages, the libraries and frameworks that have grown around them, and the reasons to choose each one.

Foundations of Programming: Fundamentals is an excellent introductory programming course. It goes through all the basics of (imperative) programming, such as, variables, I/O, control flow, collections, debugging, etc. The course instructor, Simon Allardice, is one of the best programming course instructors (if not just the best one): he is always concise and to the point, his explanations are crystal-clear and his articulation is simply perfect. The hands-on approach used in the course (writing small programs to explore each and every programming concept) is a perfect fit for an introductory course: it is just much more enjoying for everyone to program rather than to listen on how to do it for hours. My only complaint is, perhaps, the choice of the programming language in the course: as an adept of static typing I would rather prefer if some statically typed language was used for such a course.
