Introduction to Programming Concepts
This course covers the fundamentals of computer programming. Develop a better understanding of how computer applications work by learning to write your own simple programs in the VBScript scripting language. Learn the basic programming structures that are common to many programming languages, including input and output statements, constants, assignment statements, string and numeric variables, conditionals, and branching and looping control structures. Programming techniques covered include counting, averaging, rounding, the use of random numbers, and numerous tips on developing a good programming style. [Course Outline]
