We are surrounded by computers. Every day, we have to interact with a device to send an email, take a picture or buy airplane tickets to our next vacation.
In this course you will learn the basic programming skills to start building applications on your own. You will learn how to handle different data structures, how to understand an application's control flow, and how to implement the essential pieces of a computer program.
By the end of this course, you will be able to build basic command-line apps, and understand the basic concepts of programming.

What’s in a Class?
This is not "sit back and watch slides" — all Jumpstart Lab courses are hands-on. We work with real applications and you’ll implement these tools and techniques yourself. By the end of the class, you’ll have real experience, real skills, and real code to reference.
Who’s this for?
This course is built for people with no previous experience programming. Students will have to feel comfortable using a computer. No previous computer science knowledge is required.
