- Course Description:
elementary computer programming concepts. We will not be using the
fancy software packages that allow you to create web pages without
getting your hands dirty. Instead, we will be going "under the hood"
to see how web pages really work. If you're not interested in how web
pages work, this may not be the course for you.
There is also a two-hour midterm exam and a two-hour final exam. You
will need to register with the U-Online office to take the exams at a
testing center. The exams are taken with pen and paper. You are
allowed to bring one sheet of notes to the midterm and two sheets of
notes to the final.
