Continues the development of programming concepts and skills that was begun in INFT1004 Introduction to Programming. A different programming language is used, broadening the students' experience. Students' understanding of problem solving and of program design, implementation, and testing will be reinforced and extended, with the development of applications more advanced than those in INFT1004.
