An introduction to computational thinking and computer programming. We assume no prior background in programming and we begin with a basic framework for problem solving technique. We start from basics of representation of data and move to a more abstract types. We emphasize general patterns and abstraction as well as apply methods of object-oriented programming for clarity and reusability of software. Examples to be drawn from the four pillars of SUTD society.
