CMSC 141 Overview

This course introduces students with prior programming experience to the methodologies of object-oriented design and programming, which are used throughout the Computer Science curriculum. Students will learn how to move from informal problem statement, through increasingly precise problem specifications, to design and implementation of a solution. Good programming habits will be emphasized.
