Heaps of fun, and very interesting, basic programming stuff. Very good and clear professors! kudos to Jennifer Campbell and Paul Gries.

will be great to introduce other useful operators such as += etc. also, will be great if can teach the basic of OOP.

I had a blast taking this course. There are still many things I do not understand, but at least now I know what is possible.

Great course for beginners
