Overview

More complex program requirements do not have to mean design will be complex as well. Simple additions to the design method can bring about code that is easy to write, well tested and easy to maintain.

Programs can be shorter and better tested by learning how to capture common data and control structures using abstraction.

Building on the core methods covered in How to Code: Simple Data, this programming course, part of the Software Development MicroMasters program, quickly expands to cover more complex programs on more complex data. Towards the end of the course, you will design programs that even experienced developers would find challenging.

You will also learn how to design search programs. You will design a program to solve Sudoku puzzles and will be able to design many other puzzle solvers as well.

Learners who enroll in the Verified track will receive staff grading for the course project and increased interaction with the instructor and staff..

This course is really extraordinary! I totally recommend both courses in the How to code series. I learned concepts that were completely new to me, and that will sure be very important for my career.

You will work with functional programming languages, which were new to me and very exciting to learn!

You will learn concepts like Mutual Recursion, Graphs, Accumulators, Generative recursion, Arbitrary-arity trees and so many more!

I really loved a module on Search where you design a program that solves any Sudoku and another one where you solve a Tic Tac …
