Introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: program design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing. Emphasis is on good programming style and the built-in.

CS106A introduces code and computer programming for people who have not programmed before. Code and programming are central to so much in modern life, yet code can appear to be impossibly opaque. By working gradually and with its army of section leaders, CS106A takes students into the world code, building things they could not have imagined.

Presenters varying from Stanford affiliates, community partners, and graduate tutors will cover a wide range of topics from academic skills to career exploration. Past workshops included college preparedness, software exploration, and building your professional network.
