FutureLearn Award

James Stamp

has achieved a FutureLearn Award for the following program

Start Programming with Python

Raspberry Pi Foundation

This three-part program explored a range of programming concepts – starting by asking "what is a program?". Over the three courses you not only learned how to create programs – by writing code that gives instructions, 'makes decisions' and 'loops' – but also to think more like a computer scientist by splitting your programs up into smaller, easier-to-understand parts. You used everyday experiences to think about how data is structured and learned how to 'debug' your programs when they aren't working properly.

Certificates of Achievement

Certificates of Achievement for the courses on this program:


Learning outcomes

  • Explored key computing concepts, such as sequence, selection, repetition, abstraction and decomposition
  • Produced your own Python programs to solve simple problems
  • Synthesised pre-created functions (often in standard libraries) and your own code to achieve your aims
  • Demonstrated how to use Python to store and retrieve persistent data
