Course details

This hands-on course aims to introduce students with no prior computer programming experience to programming logic foundations. XCMP 1010 is one of the required introductory courses for the Low-code App Development Microcredential. Students are expected to demonstrate their understanding of basic programming concepts such as variables, functions, control structures, and databases through building a mobile app using a low-code development tool. Students must provide their own current model Windows capable PC, i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, and 256 GB minimum storage. High-speed internet access is needed for online sections and for homework. Please note that participation on the BCIT Learning Hub is mandatory. Students may have an average total time commitment of 12 hours for the course materials. Upon completion, students will have a fundamental understanding of how computers use logic to make decisions and run programs and be prepared to move on to XCMP 2010 - App Development with Low-code Environments.
