UNSW Computing 1 (OpenLearning)

Taught by:

The Art of Programming. Discover the world of computing, learn software design and development while solving puzzles with world renowned lecturer Richard Buckland.

This 12 week course will explore the world of software engineering, computing and problem solving. While Computing 1 only takes four to five hours a week (that's nothing!), you'll struggle to tear yourself away as you learn:

- abstraction, estimation, programming, machine code, C, problem solving

- top down design, arithmetic expressions, layout, style++

- types, variables, memory other numeric types

- while and for loops, stack frames, arrays...

Even better, Computing 1 will give you an understanding of what it's like to be a developer and enable you to appreciate the art of computing.

Whether you're in Sydney, Singapore or Santiago, you'll love Computing 1 on OpenLearning. You won't just take the course, you'll be a part of the course by contributing to the lecture notes and helping other students.

You'll enjoy a mix of short activities, fun software puzzles and projects. You'll learn at your own pace and feel motivated with helpful and immediate feedback on your progress.
