Course Description

Understanding the way programming languages use data and how execution flow works are key elements in understanding computer programming. In this course, you'll explore data types, how variables and data typing are used, and the purpose of composite data types and their potential uses. Then you'll learn about collections, including arrays, lists, sets, and dictionaries. Finally, you'll discover how program flow is controlled using branching, including execution paths, conditionals, and switch statements. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
