Computing Science 20 & 30

Students will understand software development by learning how to layer modular programming approaches over structured programming techniques. They will learn how to design code and debug programs that use a set of data structures. At the advanced level, students will learn how object-oriented programming (OPP) can improve the efficiency of algorithm development and program constitution. They will study set standard abstract data types and the dynamic data structures conventionally used to implement them. Students also learn a number of standard iterative data processing algorithms.
