Programming for Everyone: Introduction to Programming (edX)

Created by:Delivered by:

Learn to solve problems by writing your own programs for the devices that are all around us in this credit-eligible course. Every day, computers and algorithms touch your life in both mundane and profound ways. They are in the plants and distribution systems that bring you electricity and clean water, sensors that moderate the flow of traffic, in the tractors and combines that sow and harvest your food, and in the satellites that measure and predict the weather.

If you are curious about what computers can do, and how we instruct them to do those things - this course is for you. No prior programming experience is needed. More than just exposure to programming, you’ll gain a powerful set of thinking and problem-solving skills that you can use in your daily life.

Start taking advantage of the computer power around us to make our world a better place.
