Description:Take your first steps toward a career as a computer programmer! In this course, you’ll learn to use Just BASIC, a free Windows programming language, to create stand-alone applications for professional or personal use. As you explore the BASIC programming language, you’ll learn how to work with graphical user interfaces, controls, variables, arrays, conditional logic, and loops. You’ll also examine subroutines, functions, and debugging. After that, you’ll discover how to add sound and graphics to your Just BASIC programs. To reinforce the concepts in each lesson, you’ll create a working computer-game application. Even if you’ve never programmed before, you’ll find it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions in each lesson. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and confidence you need to program in BASIC and design your own custom applications for home, school, or work. Requirements: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 2007; Internet access, e-mail, the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser, and the Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins (two free and simple downloads you obtain at http://www.adobe.com/downloads by clicking Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader). Note: this course is not suitable for Macintosh users. No previous programming knowledge or experience is required.
