Course contents

This course is intended as a first introduction to programming computers using the C++ programming language. It is not assumed that the student has done any programming before hence this course is not comprehensive and does not cover all of C++. In particular it does not cover any of the object-oriented features of C++, these are introduced in the following course (Introduction to Computing II). Because this is a first programming course emphasis is placed on the design of programs in a language-independent fashion. A brief introduction to computers is also given.

The lessons of the course may be split into groups as follows:

  1. About the computer and computer systems.
  2. About the design of programs.
  3. About C++

Note that there is also a document `The Computer Exercises' which gives some help in using Windows and the Borland C++ compilers.
