Course content
This course is the first one in the Introduction to Programming series. It is targeted at getting fundamental knowledge of the procedural programming paradigm and acquiring the ability to solve elementary programming tasks. We use the C language to explain the procedural paradigm and to pass the programming ability. Therefore, the syntax and the semantics of the C language is taught in this course. In the first part of each lesson, syntax and semantics of the C language is presented. In the second part, students use the acquired knowledge to solve practical problems. There are lots of variants of the C language, the students are therefore led to use the ANSI standard version. Practical problems are chosen to train general programming skills as well as to practice theoretical knowledge gained in other branches. Curriculum: - Program source code structure. - Data types, variables, constants. - Operators. - Compound commands, conditions, loops. - Arrays, structured and enumeration type. - Pointers, working with memory. - Functions. - Basic input and output.
