Computer Programming

Computer programming (often shortened to programming or coding) is the process of taking an original formulation of a computing problem to creating executable computer programs. Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation of algorithms in a target programming language. In this program we explore these pursuits, and create applications in the C++, Java, Python, and Swift programming languages to prepare you for an entry level computer programming position.
