IN1000 – Introduction to Object-oriented Programming
This course is an introduction to and gives a good base for further studies within computational science, but it's also suited for those who just wish to understand what programming is. The course doesn't presuppose any knowledge of programming. It'll be given a beginners introduction to Python and how to develop algorithms, included the use of lists, files and communication with user.
Particular emphasis is placed on object-oriented programming.
After taking IN1000, you'll:
- understand the principles of object-oriented programming and can use these to write simpler object-oriented programs
- know how to program in the Python programming language and can use this to solve minor problems using choices, loops, functions, lists, classes and objects
- know how to write clear and readable programs
- be able to put yourself in someone else's programs, find any errors in them and modify them
Students who are admitted to study programmes at UiO must each semester register which courses and exams they wish to sign up for in Studentweb.
If you are not already enrolled as a student at UiO, please see our information about admission requirements and procedures.
