This subject is an introduction to programming. There is a focus on writing computer code to solve problems in business, which promotes the development of problem-solving skills. The necessary foundation concepts are covered, including expressions, variables, data structures, control structures, functions, commenting and debugging. Although it can be taken as a stand-alone subject, it is specifically designed for students interested in future study in data science and big data analytics. Two widely popular programming languages for data science, R and Python, will be used as vehicles for learning programming. Cutting-edge R and Python packages used by data scientists will be covered in this subject.
Prior coding knowledge and experience is not a requirement for this subject
