Introduction to computer science (2nd ed.)


The course provides the background on important topics of computer science: Algorithms, Programming and Databases.

Regarding algorithms, we introduce the concept of asympthotic notation, we describe simple data structures and we introduce different algorithms for ordering objects and visit graphs.

Regarding programming, we supply a general overview of the two most important programming paradigms (imperative and object-oriented). For each one we provide several usage examples.

The course includes five teaching units divided in as many weeks. Each teaching unit will present a main topic that will be divided in its basic concepts through several videos for about 10 minutes. The teaching units will be distributed among the three main topics covered by the course.

You can have the Certificate of Attendance after watching all video lectures and answering at least 7 questions out of 10 of each test correctly (you can retry each answer twice).
