However, if you have experience, this course may go a little too slow for you. In this course the topics covered will give a good base knowledge to begin to program in any language. We will learn so many concepts, beginning with programming logic. Learning will take place in short lectures, hands on practice, and practice quizzes. At the end of the course, you will be ready to start learning any programming language.

This course is for

• The very beginner interested in learning programming, or perhaps you have taken some programming before, but did not understand the concepts. It is quite common for technology classes to taught by someone who understands technology very well but may not explain things. This is where I come in. My Master of Information Systems degree has taught me how to communicate between different cultures, personalities, and even different departments such as communication between business partners and programmers. I am also very quick to answer questions if you need any help.
