Computer systems have taken on an increasingly important role in our
society, and the heart and soul of any computer system is the software
that drives it. Individuals who love to write software and who have a
talent for doing so will have unique opportunities to contribute to
our society in ways we can hardly imagine today. If you wish to
develop a love and talent for computer programming, this course will
help you to do so.  We will consider computer programming, neither as
a science nor as an art, but as a craft to be learned from
apprenticeship and practice. You will learn to appreciate the elegance
and beauty of a computer program as well as its function. We will
study principles that will serve you not just in a first programming
job but for years to come. Some of you will come to this course with
prior programming experience, and some without. Either way is fine;
the only requirements beyond the stated prerequisites are an open mind
and a willingness to learn.
