Description

Great Introduction to Coding

This course teaches programming for absolute beginners. It provides over 50 hands-on coding exercises, so you spend most of your time getting good at coding, not just watching videos.  The difficulty builds gradually so you're always ready for the next step.

Most people can complete this course in about 6 months at 10 hours per week.

Refined in a Classroom

This course material has been used for 3 years in a face-to-face classroom, for adult job training.  This has resulted in many refinements to the course material, eliminating bugs and errors, and ensuring no steps are missing, so you can trust the quality of the course.  

Many of the classroom students are now working in professional software development, and have had wonderful things to say about this course.  "It's hard, but in a good way, and everything is explained well; I don't get lost."

Native English Speaker

All voice-over is done by me (your instructor), and I'm a native English speaker from the midwest of the United States; I speak clearly and carefully.  I also provide full text transcripts of all videos, and am working on closed captioning, so that you can easily follow along with what I'm saying.

Videos Easy to Review

The course assumes basic computer literacy but no prior programming experience. We'll start out simple and carefully explain every step.    

I explain new vocabulary every step of the way so you don't get lost, and I make sure the topics don't skip around.  Each topic gently prepares you for the next topic in the course.  I focus on the core Java language, especially the most important areas you would actually use on the job.  

I use lots of pictures, code examples with arrows pointing out the important parts, and careful demonstrations of how and why things work.

Every video starts with an overview slide, so you can quickly review code examples when you come back to it later.  Then we go into the details, and summarize at the end with some journal questions for you to remember, apply, and elaborate on the material you've just learned.

Hands-on Practice

The early part of the course emphasizes hands-on practice and repetition to build a strong memory of the material. Then as we introduce more complex topics, it shifts to software design and strategies for problem solving, so you're ready for the next level.

Practice assignments use what you just learned, in a simple exercise.  Challenge assignments use the same topics, but in a more interesting and complex way.  Freestyle assignments give you a few requirements and then encourage you to get creative, building your own ideas.  I found that learners who only do class exercises don't get enough practice at creating their own ideas, which holds them back professionally.  Freestyle exercises give you that necessary practice and are also great fun!

Good for Teachers

This material is well-suited to teaching computer science in junior high and high schools, as a more professional approach than using Scratch.  Teachers with advanced students will find this useful for both themselves and their students.  (Udemy does provide institutional subscriptions.)

Acknowledgements

Most graphics were licensed through PresenterMedia (obligatory attribution) - many thanks to them for providing such great concept graphics with the ability to customize colors and text.  The colorful slides and memorable pictures make learning coding a lot more fun.

Who this course is for:

  • You are a complete beginner to programming, and want a course with a gentle learning curve that helps you solidly learn and apply the basics.
  • You want to start a journey towards a career in coding. You will find this a welcoming and supportive place to start.
  • You've worked with Scratch before, and want a more professional and more powerful coding experience.
  • You are a teacher who wants to teach computer science at a junior high to high school level. Go through the course to learn for yourself, and then check Udemy's institutional offerings for class enrollment.

Description

This course will transform you from a MATLAB Novice into a MATLAB Master. The course was developed under the strict oversight of Hristo Zhivomirov who is one of the top 50 MATLAB contributors Worldwide (search for his name in Google).   

The course is structured in a way that is suitable for both beginners and those that already have some experience with MATLAB, there is a lot of information for everyone.   

Everything in our world today can be viewed as some kind of a matrix, and I’m not talking about the Matrix Trilogy. For example

  • Measuring the temperature of a patient every 2 hours, can be represented with a one dimensional matrix, which is also called a vector   
  • Monochromatic (black and white) image is a two dimensional matrix, the values in each cell in the matrix is representing the gradation of the gray color   
  • Measuring temperature in a room for example, rooms are 3D, so we need x, y, z to describe the position at which we take our measurements, and the value is the temperature, that is a three dimensional matrix   
  • Measure now the change of that temperature over a period of time and the temperature becomes a fourth dimension
  • Now add time in the mix and you get… a fifth dimension!

Actually MATLAB has no restrictions on dimensions, you can work with 4, 5, 6 and more dimensions in a single matrix!

How to handle The Matrix: It is not necessary to look for the red pill, like Neo had to – what you actually need is MATLAB, which means MATrix LABoratory contrary to popular belief. MATLAB is a programming language of high level and interactive programming environment that lets you easily implement numeric experiments and methods, allowing you to design algorithms, analyze data and visualize that data in a very, very powerful way. 

You will learn:   
  • Variables, everything you need to know about variables in matlab, their types or lack of types, converting between different types, naming conventions, the semicolon operator and more   
  • Basic Arithmetic Operations in MATLAB, the most important thing in this section of the course are the Brackets and the Order of operations, many beginners get lost when they encounter complex expressions, and you will become a master of those
  • Right after that we are diving into deep waters starting with Vectors, you will learn how to think in vectors and perform a variety of different operations on and with vectors. Concatenating vectors, extracting or selecting subvectors, and more   
  • Matrices are next on the line, but you wont need any pills, because I have you covered, you will learn everything you need to know about working with Matrices in MATLAB and you will also learn a trick in this section that will help you optimize your code and make it run up to 100 times faster
  • Data visualization, because, well, whats the point of working with Data if you cant understand it or share it with other people, visualizing data is key in any area of work   
  • And finally we get to the actual MATLAB Programming by utilizing conditional statements, loops and functions to control the flow of your code, write less code, and make your code modular.

Each section contains a source code file at the end so that you can download and review the code that I have written in the lectures!
I hope that you will enjoy this course, as much as I did creating it, so lets dive right into it!

I welcome you to the course!
