Computer Science is a topic that is becoming more and more relevant. Whether in college, school or at work. Computers and computer programs are everywhere in our everyday lives. We use software in smartphones, ATMs and even household appliances that we are able to control with our smartphones. A lot of people are confused and don’t really know how all of this actually works

This compact course will take you from zero knowledge to having a solid understanding of the basic concepts of computer science and programming languages.
To keep the course interesting and entertaining, we use a lot of examples to explain the individual topics. Amongst many other things we will learn about the importance of algorithms and how we can create one and why they are incredibly important. We will also learn about different approaches to programming such as imperative, declarative and object oriented programming. We’re going to give you real world examples outside of code and computer programs to make sure everybody is able to understand what we are talking about.

At the end of this course you will have a fundamental understanding of the most important concepts of computer science and programming and can try your luck on an easy test exercise. The course also contains a kind of glossary where we’ve listed definitions and explanations for the most important terms so you always have them at your fingertips.

So if you always wanted to know how computers actually work, what a programmer does and how we are using computers to develop our own programs join us in this course!
