GW Basic Course Overview

GW Basic Course Overview

The GW Basic course is a comprehensive guide for learners interested in programming using the GW-BASIC language, a dialect of the BASIC programming language developed by Microsoft. Aimed at beginners, the course offers an understanding of fundamental programming concepts and hands-on experience in coding.

Module 1: Starting to Program sets the foundation, discussing the relevance of learning to program, basics of computers and programming, and the initial steps in program planning. Module 2: GW Basics dives into the syntax and structure of GW-BASIC, covering variables, direct commands, line numbering, editing, function keys, program flow, decision-making, subroutines, and program file management.

As learners progress, they explore more advanced topics such as graphics, text handling, data storage, sorting, searching, numerical computations, and even interfacing with MS-DOS. The course includes lessons on creating graphics and color, and it offers insights into data on disk. It also touches upon three-dimensional graphics and sounds, providing a well-rounded educational experience in programming with GW-BASIC.

By the end of the course, students will have a strong grasp of how to create and manipulate GW-BASIC programs, enabling them to develop their own software on a fundamental level. This knowledge not only builds a solid programming foundation but also prepares learners for further studies in more modern programming languages.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.
