AERSP 424 Advanced Computer Programming (3)

This course presents an advanced view of computer programming, mainly using Java, C++, and Ada95. The use of current operating systems (e.g. Linus and Unix) and compilers (e.g. gcc) will also be presented. Object Oriented Programming will also be discussed in detail. Object Oriented Programming is quite different than functional or procedural programming, and it is difficult to learn on your own. The differences and similarities between Java and C++ and Ada95 will also be discussed. Hands-on programming will be a key part of the course. This course is one of the Core Courses for the Graduate Minor in High Performance Computing, and will also be a technical elective in Aerospace Engineering.
