DPR-792 - Introduction to Programming

Take your first steps toward a career as a computer programmer! In this course, you will learn to use Just BASIC, a free Windows programming language, to create stand-alone applications for professional or personal use. As you explore the BASIC programming language, you will learn how to work with graphical user interfaces, controls, variables, arrays, conditional logic, and loops. You will also examine subroutines, functions, and debugging. After that, you will discover how to add sound and graphics to your Just BASIC programs. To reinforce the concepts in each lesson, you will create a working computer-game application. Even if you have never programmed before, you will find it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions in each lesson. By the end of the course, you will have the skills and confidence you need to program in BASIC and design your own custom applications for home, school, or work.
