This course provides an introduction to the foundational building blocks of software development, such as variables, control structures, data structures, and modular code organization. Coding work will be conducted using the Javascript programming language, and while examples and syntax will be specific to this platform, the course is structured around core concepts applicable to most programming languages in use today. Coursework will consist of hands-on weekly programming exercises, and semi-weekly readings offering insight into the culture, politics, and history of computer programs. Midterm and final projects will afford students the opportunity to develop more substantial experiments in interactive web development, information visualization, and video game development. Access to a working laptop will be expected throughout the semester, and students can check one out from the university if necessary. This course fulfills the Integrative Course requirement of the Culture and Media major. [Tracks C, M, S]
