Programming Methodology

by Stanford

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This course is the largest of the introductory programming courses and is one of the largest courses at Stanford. Topics focus on the introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: object-oriented design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing.

Programming Methodology teaches the widely-used Java programming language along with good software engineering principles. Emphasis is on good programming style and the built-in facilities of the Java language. The course is explicitly designed to appeal to humanists and social scientists as well as hard-core techies. In fact, most Programming Methodology graduates end up majoring outside of the School of Engineering. 

Prerequisites: The course requires no previous background in programming, but does require considerable dedication and hard work.

This Stanford course was taught on campus three times per week in 50 minute lectures for the Stanford Engineering Everywhere Initiative.
