THE BASIS FOR EDUCATION IN THE last millennium was “reading, writing, and arithmetic;” now it is reading, writing, and computing. Learning to program is an essential part of the education of every student in the sciences and engineering. Beyond direct applications, it is the first step in understanding the nature of computer science’s undeniable impact on the modern world.
The course is designed for students with some programming experience, but if you have none and are motivated you will do just fine. It's intended to support your programming journey as an A''level vacationist or a science or engineering university student doing programming.
Installing Java and Eclipse
To write Java programs, you need two things: the Java Development Kit (JDK), and a source code editor. Please follow these directions before the first class, so you can get started on the first assignment faster. If you run into difficulty, we can help you during the first class.
The Java Development Kit contains the tools needed to compile and run Java programs. The source code editor lets you write programs, and has features to make this easier. For this course, you can use any tool you like, but we recommend Eclipse, and will demonstrate it during the first lecture. Details on downloading (Open source) and installing the required software are provided on the dashboard.
