This course has been supported by the University of Dundee! Check out the article: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/main/news/2014/article/computing-student-turns-teache Computer Science and programming are the most wanted skills in many industries. For the past three years I have been offered internships and interviews at major companies such as Skyscanner or Spotify! You can do this too, but you need to get comfortable and understand these skills! Even in some industries, where programming isn't expected, people are using it to get promotions, increase productivity, and overall make their life easier. Here's an example from someone who used programming to earn a lot of money and then got a promotion! My work involves a lot of data entry, verification, etc... I am a programmer at heart and figured out how to make a script do all my work for me. My co-workers have a 90% accuracy rating and complete 60-100 records a day. I have 99.6% accuracy and over 1000 records a day. Everyone's monthly accuracy and transaction count are tallied at the end of the month, which is how we earn our bonus
No need to say this person got a huge bonus at the end of every month! This person then went on to get a job as lead software engineer in the same company, instead of doing data entry. Good for him! Today you can start learning the skills required to boost your employability, look great in front of your superiors, earn a raise or get that promotion! The best part of all: it won't take very much of your time at all.
- This course is an introduction to all the important concepts of Computer Science in under 10 hours.
- The 19 quizzes and assignments will help you test your learning and strengthen your knowledge of Computer Science.
My name is Jose Salvatierra, and I have been teaching and working with Java
for the past five years. My students have always left my sessions feeling confident that they understand why things are the way they are
and how they work. This would let them pass their courses and also start working on projects to maximise their chances to get internships
. Some of them skipped this and went on to start their own companies
directly! This course is great if you are new to Computer Science, but also if you already have some experience with programming, because we will go through mostly everything that is covered in the first and second year of University courses
- What programming is, and what programming languages are.
- How computers work, and how each component works.
- Binary numbers and character sets.
- Programming in Java, most things you need to know about Java syntax.
- Algorithms: why they are useful and how to make them.
- More on data types: Strings and booleans in Java.
- Collections: arrays and ArrayLists.
- Organising your data into Data Structures.
- File Input/Output.
- A whole brand new section on programming challenges that you may be asked in an interview!
The aim of the course is to help you kickstart your computing career
. Every lesson comes in pairs, with a lecture video where we will study a concept, and then a programming exercise video, where we will implement the concept and reassure our understanding of the ins and outs of the concept. In addition, for this course I will provide diagrams, code templates and assignments so that you can enhance your learning and test your knowledge. If you complete over 80% of the course material, you will get a certificate of completion
that will tell potential employers that have completed this course, and thus helping even further! However, if you ever feel that the course just isn't for you, or maybe you expected some completely different, I offer you a 30-day money-back guarantee
, regardless of the reason why you might choose to take it. Look at what some people are saying!
He is very down to earth, concise, and knowledgeable on the lectures he presents. I am looking forward to more advance courses from Jose -- keep up the wonderful work! - "Jay-Ar Jamon" Was nice and easy to follow for a beginner like me. I'll definitely be revisiting the course again to refresh my memory since it covered so many topics... - "Clara Chen" Join me in a journey of learning. Lets enjoy the course!
