About the content

This short series of programming courses are unique in focusing on learning a systematic programming method rather than a programming language. This practical approach will help you channel your creativity so that you can program well in any language.

SPD1 presents the core design method with a focus on simple data. You will learn techniques that help you develop your program requirements; how to produce programs with consistent structure that are easy to modify later; and how to make your programs more reliable by building tests as an integral part of the programming process. This part concludes with the design of simple interactive program. The final project is an interactive game.

This course is part of the How to Code - Systematic Program Design XSeries Program
