 ***PROGRAMMING ESSENTIALS***

 

Course Description:

This course will provide students with the knowledge and tools necessary for basic computer programming. The programming software used will be Microsoft Visual Basic, and Game Development Software. Students will learn to design, code, and test, maintain, and document structure programs.

 

Review and Preview

Visual Basic is object-oriented, where objects are reusable entities of code.  In the first two chapters, we have used several “built-in” objects: button controls, label controls, text box controls, Date object and Random objects.  Having these reusable objects available makes our programming life much simpler, reducing the need to write and rewrite code.

In this class, we learn , learn  and  to .

DESIGN AND PROTOTYPE OF APPLICATIONS

Students will learn;

  • the terminology of object-oriented programming (OOP)
  • to create our own objects
  • learn to extend existing objects
  • customize them for our use (the idea of inheritance)
