This is the first programming course offered in university. I remember spending that one winter break reading a C++ book and being excited when I wrote my first ever program. I have thoroughly read the book and solved many practice problems, which is why I ended up getting an A without attending the lectures. If you want to learn programming, or anything for that matter, find the best resources and invest your time and money into it.

About this Course
You will learn the basics of programming. In particular, we focus on procedural and functional programming.
- Are there quiz multiple choice questions?
There are 100+ Questions that rigorously test your understanding.
- Are there practice problems?
There are 15+ Practice Problems (with Solution) similar to the problems in the recommended book.
- Where can I ask you questions?
You can leave a comment under the “Q and A” tab in the lecture related to your question.
- What is the best way to learn from this course?
You can adjust the video playback speed according to your preference. I would advise you to keep it at x1 for normal lectures and at x1.5 for the quiz solutions and practice problems. Also, try to challenge yourself by solving the practice problems alone, then compare your code with the solution.
- Does this course cover data structures?
No. Data structures is a course by itself, which universities usually offer after completing an object oriented programming course.
You can expect a more advanced programming course, which focuses on object oriented programming (OOP). This programming style or model is widely used in the software world in fields such as game development, web development, mobile app development, and much more.
