Module 1, Part 1

Introduction to CS 1130

This first part of module 1 of CS 1130 gives you a basic introduction to programming languages, programming, and Java.


1. Computing and programming

Reading: Gries/Gries, Chap. 0, pp. 3-14.

Comments: The purpose of this reading is to help you become familiar with some terminology of computer hardware and software, to give you a sense of history of programming, and to give you a brief overview of object-orientation and the programming language Java. You probably are familiar with some of this material already, since you already know a programming language, and it won't take you long to read this chapter. But do read it.

2. Structural and algorithmic aspects of programming languages

Reading: Lecture Notes.

Comments: This short little essay talks about two aspects of a programming language and gives a brief introduction to how object-oriented programming (OO) treats the structural aspect.
