Computer Systems and Programming
The first part of the course will explore the basics:|
What is a computer system?
What’s programming and data all about?
How can a computer solve problems?
Why is data represented in binary?
What is a DBMS?
What is a network?
Why do computers have their own language?
There are a range of assessment tasks and you get to.....
Design a coded solution to a problem
Create a coded solution using a programming language
Test your solution
Evaluation of your solution
How is it different from ICT?
In ICT, you design a project such as a website or game then make it using software
There is very little programming in ICT
In Computing you program a piece of software to solve a problem
You will learn a number of programming languages
You will learn the programming skills needed in the modern economy
The IT industry is the fastest growing in NI
