1 Overview

Welcome! In this course, we have two main goals - to teach you the skill of programming and the art of computer science. Having the ability to write and understand simple programs has become increasingly more important. The concepts and principles you pick up in this class will give you the ability to take an algorithm or problem in your chosen field and write a program that will help you do your job quicker, easier, and more reliably.

1.4 Swapping Labs and Waiting Lists

If you attempt to swap one section but not the other in SIS, expect to end up on the back of the waiting list for both sections See the FAQ for suggestions on ways around this.

2 Other Introduction to Programming Offerings

CS 1110 and CS 1111 are both “general” introductions to programming, providing an overview of topics suitable for all majors. There are also other Introduction to Programming offerings at UVa:

CS 1112

Covers the same material as CS 1110/1111, but is organized based on the assumption that none of the students have any prior programming experience. By contrast, CS 1110 assumes most students have no prior programming experience; CS 1111 assumes all students do have prior programming experience.

Placement Test

If you have programmed before, you can likely place out of Introduction to Programming entirely. Placement tests are offered in the CS department offices (Rice 527); no appointment is necessary. If you pass the placement test, we advise taking CS 2110 to expand your programming ability further.

Three other courses (CS 1120 and two different flavors of CS 1113) present a more mathematical-, scientific-, or engineering-focussed introduction to computing, but are not being offered this semester.
