This introduction to building mobile apps explores the basic elements and options for an app, from the simpler menu-driven and webpage rendering approaches, to some of the possibilities involved in orientation and location-sensitive data inputs and augmented reality techniques. The course will include a review of some existing apps which help demonstrate many of the options available for apps, and provide the opportunity to design a basic app incorporating some of those elements. There will also be an overview of important security considerations, and ways to share and distribute a more polished app, either independently or via existing app repositories and stores.

This beginners course equips you with the skills to implement a relational database design entity relationship diagram (ERD) into a MySQL database. Please be prepared for a fast paced course, but the materials provided can be used for consolidation after the course.

This is a fee-based online course for Oracle: Database Design and SQL.

In the first half of Oracle’s Database Design and Programming with SQL course you will learn to analyse complex business scenarios and create a data model - a conceptual representation of an organization’s information. In the second section you will implement your database design by creating a physical database using SQL, an industry-standard database programming language.

Completion of this course prepares you close to being ready to sit the external exam Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I 1Z0-051. Read more about this exam.

This is a fee-based online course for Oracle: Database Programming with PL/SQL. If you are unfamiliar with the Oracle online course environment it is strongly recommended that you attend the Oracle Academy: Database Design & SQL, and Database Programming in PL/SQL Induction to the Online Environment course.

This course covers Oracle's PL/SQL, a procedural language extension to SQL. You will learn procedural logic constructs such as variables, constraints, conditional statements and iterative controls.

This online course prepares you toward the external exams:

  • Oracle Database 11g: Program with PL/SQL Exam Number: 1Z0-144 Read more about this exam and its associated fee.
  • Program with PL/SQL Exam Number: 1Z0-147 Read more about this exam and its associated fee.

This is a fee-based online course for Java Fundamentals & Java Programming. Both courses will be available upon receiving a confirmed booking, the courses cannot be booked separately.

The Java Fundamentals course:

  • Lays the foundation for those with little or no programming experience
  • Introduces fundamental programming concepts and terminology in an easy, engaging manner
  • Uses animations and games to introduce basic computer science concepts
  • Incorporates integrated development environments: Alice 3, Greenfoot, and Eclipse

The Java Programming course:

  • Builds upon the knowledge gained from Oracle Academy: Java Fundamentals
  • Enables students to further develop Java programming knowledge using Java SE7
  • Teaches the core APIs used to design object-oriented applications with Java
  • Uses the GridWorld case study to enhance student knowledge of core Java concepts

Completion of this online Oracle Academy: Java Fundamentals course prepares you to take the optional external Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 7 Programmer 1 exam 1Z0-803. Information on the exam fee and details of the exam can be found online.

Completion of the Oracle Academy: Java Programming course prepares you to take the external Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 7 Programmer II exam 1Z0-804. Exam details including fee can be found online.

This PHP introduction course explores the basic elements of PHP script programming. PHP allows web developers to write dynamic web pages, for instance by simplifying ways to collect data through a web form, and to process and include data, by placing small scripts directly into HTML files.

Session 1 will provide background, tools and exercises for writing and editing PHP in HTML files, uploading them to a web server, and making them available online. There will also be an introduction to programming in PHP, to help enable you to later adapt the examples to address your more advanced examples and projects.

Session 2 will extend the simpler exercises in Session 1, adding more options and capabilities, as well as providing new and more advanced examples. Using the tools and techniques from Session 1, there will be opportunities to adjust and partly customise the examples, and if time permits potentially begin a small exercise of your own.

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

This course is aimed at those new to programming, or who have never been formally taught the principles and basic concepts of programming. It provides an introduction to the basic concepts common to most high level languages (including Python, Java, Fortran, C, C++, Visual Basic). The aim of the course is to equip attendees with the background knowledge and confidence necessary to tackle many on-line and printed programming tutorials. It may also help attendees in deciding which programming language is suitable for their programming task.

Knowledge of the concepts presented in this course is a pre-requisite for many of the other courses in the Scientific Computing series of courses (although not for the "Python for Absolute Beginners" course).

Python 3: Advanced Topics (Self-paced) Wed 6 Dec 2017   14:00   [More dates...] [Places]

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series and is suitable for people who have Python experience equivalent to either of the introductory courses: Introduction for Absolute Beginners or Introduction for Programmers

These sessions consist of a selection of self-paced mini-courses, each taking at most a half-day. Python expert(s) from the UCS will be present to answer questions or address difficulties with these. Attendees can select from the available topics to most closely meet their individual needs. Attendees are welcome to attend more than one session to work through multiple topics. If an attendee finishes a topic with time to spare they may select another, and so on.

Python 3: Introduction for Absolute Beginners Wed 17 Jan 2018   09:30   [More dates...] [Places]

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

This course is aimed at those new to programming and provides an introduction to programming using Python, focussing on scientific programming. This course is probably unsuitable for those with programming experience, even if it is just in shell scripting or Matlab-like programs. By the end of this course, attendees should be able to write simple Python programs and to understand more complex Python programs written by others.

As this course is part of the Scientific Computing series, the examples chosen are of most relevance to scientific programming.

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

This full-day course introduces the Python programming language to those who are already familiar with another high level programing language such as C/C++, Fortran, Java, Perl or Visual Basic. The aim of this course is to give such programmers sufficient familiarity with Python that they can attend any of the more advanced Python courses organised by the Computing service and easily follow any of the widely available Python tutorials on the more complex aspects of the language.

This course covers all the material contained in the "Programming: Python for Absolute Beginners" course, but in a more abbreviated fashion suitable for those who already have significant programming experience. This course does NOT cover the more complex aspects of the language (for such topics see the other Computing Service Python courses), nor is there much explicit discussion of the object oriented features of Python.

Unix: Simple Shell Scripting for Scientists Mon 13 Nov 2017   14:00   [More dates...] [Places]

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

No previous experience of shell scripting is required for this course; however some knowledge of the interactive use of the bash shell is a prerequisite (see Simple Shell Scripting for Scientists: Prerequisites for details).

This course introduces shell scripting in bash for scientific computing tasks. Day one introduces very basic shell scripts in bash which process the command line in a simple fashion. Day two covers how to write more advanced shell scripts in bash. Day three covers how to make one's shell scripts more robust.

At the end of each day one or more exercises are set. It is VERY IMPORTANT that attendees attempt these exercises before the next day of the course. Attendees should make sure that they have allowed themselves sufficient study time for these exercises between each day of the course.
