Send To Friend?

Instructor: Brian Dentry

Coding is cool, but what does it mean and is it something you can actually do? Yes you can! Microsoft Small Basic puts the "fun" back into computer programming. Small Basic is a stepping-stone to the world of computer programming making it easier, approachable, and fun for beginning designers. Small Basic is an OPP language and is great to start with since the focus is on the problem/algorithm that is being developed rather than the more complex/abstract syntax of the language.

Topics to be explored: Intro to Small Basic, Graphics, File Input/Output, Shapes, and everything in between.

Please Note:

Bring your own laptop. Lab fee $25 payable to the instructor on the first evening. No class October 31.
