Learning To Program - An Introduction Hi. This is Scott Allen, and I've put together this course to teach you programming. I have found computer programming and software development to be rewarding both as a hobby and as a profession. It's part puzzle solving and part art. You can learn something new every day if you want, and you get better at programming with every program that you write. What's wonderful about computer programming these days is that there are so many different types of computers and so many different types of programs too. You might want to create a racing game for a phone or a business application for a desktop computer. Or maybe you want to build a website or write programs for devices that control lab instruments or the lights on appliances in your home. Maybe you just want to write programs to help yourself organize your finances or photographs. But whatever the reason you want to learn programming, there is an entire world of opportunities you can choose from. Many different jobs, many different hobbies, and many different fun challenges are waiting for you. I designed this course to give you the basics you need to know to get started for any type of programming. And once you learn how to control a computer and make it do your bidding, you'll have a skill that is highly valued in today's world.
Learning To Program - Branch And Loop Hi. This is Scott Allen of Pluralsight, and in this module we're going to look at controlling the flow of execution in a program. This is where we check to see if something is true or false, like is a test score high enough to warrant the best grade in the class, or is it the lowest? We'll also be looking at looping in a program, which is a technique you can use to repeatedly execute a piece of code. That's something you might need to do if you need to compute the sum of a series of numbers. This and more awaits you in this module.
Learning To Program - Final Hi. This is Scott Allen, and this is the final module in this first course of Learning To Program. In this module we'll enhance the gradeBook from the last module and then take the gradeBook to the web using Node and a web browser.
