This is the introductory programming course for Cybersecurity students. The course consists of video lectures by Charles Severance and/or reading materials, which will be complemented by online practice sessions on Thursdays.
Before each practice session you have to watch the video lectures, solve a quiz about the current topic, and solve and submit programming exercises. In the practice sessions, main topics and exercises are reviewed and more exercises are solved.
- Thu 14:15-15:45 (group 1)
- Thu 18:15-19:45 (group 2)
|2.||Homework||18.02||Variables, expressions, and statements|
|5.||Homework||11.03||Loops and Iterations|
|12.||Homework||29.04||Graphics (Tkinter)||Project alpha|
|16.||27.05||Regular Expressions||Project beta|
For both tests there will be a retake, which will be scheduled and announced separately. In addition, there will be a programming project starting on week 7, and exam in June.

After passing this course the student:
- knows and can use fundamental programming constructions: variables, expressions, assignments, conditionals, loops, subroutines, recursion, simple input/output
- knows basic datatypes and -structures (numeric types, booleans, strings, lists etc) and can use corresponding standard operations
- can analyze and explain in detail the behavior of simple programs, and modify, complement and develop them
- can design algorithms for solving simple problems, and implement, test and debug the corresponding program
- can implement projects related to programming in collaboration with teammates.
