Computers and the software they run are not magic. Nor should they be perceived as such.
Learning to code is not valuable because everyone needs to program computers, but because such an integral part of modern life needs to be understood at a basic, comprehensible level.
Our beginning programming course, CNA 267, is now using Python as the programming language. Students learn to work with decision and loop control structures, variables, lists (arrays) and procedures, etc. Python is becoming one of the most widely-accepted languages for business professionals and scientists.
Please inform your students (who need to learn programming) of this course. It is being offered during spring semester, as well as next fall.
