Have you ever wanted to know how computers are programmed? Have you tried to learn, but got discouraged but too much maths, too much technology, too much studying? This course will explain everything from scratch, step by step and idea by idea, without you needing anything but the four basic operations. (Psst! Actually you don’t even need division.)
You’re going to discover what makes a computer “tick”, how these machines are programmed, and what are the secrets that enable programmers to get along with them — all in short, easy and synthesised video lectures. The course begins at an absolute zero, and will guide you all the way to using a modern programming language, called Ruby.
All this, and more, is taught using presentation, animations, videos of wires and coloured lights, playing card games and imagination exercises about people from different universes. There’s one single assignment at the end, and you’ll also find a few resources to help you on your way.
After completing this course you’ll be able to carry on by yourself, or to choose a more advanced course, without fear that you’ll get bogged down in any strange or scary concepts!
This is the English translation of a successful course that I’ve been teaching for many years. There are students of course who today have rewarding careers as programmers. You can have one, too!
Who this course is for:
- People looking to get into programming without any prerequisites
- People interesting in finding out more about this profession
- People who don’t like to cram, but want to get somewhere in IT
- Basic arithmetics — the four operations. Nothing else at all. That’s why it’s called “from absolute zero”!
