CS10 is designed for CS pre-majors to introduce students to core programming concepts using the Java programming language. This class will move quicker and cover more ground than CS 5; students in this class are encouraged to either have previous programming experience or to be open to experimentation / hacking. This course is not designed for people who are intimidated by computers or programming.
The course will be augmented by guest lectures and student presentations.
