About this course on CS50’s Introduction to Computer Science

This is CS50x, Harvard University’s introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming for majors and non-majors alike, with or without prior programming experience. An entry-level course taught by David J. Malan, CS50x teaches students how to think algorithmically and solve problems efficiently. Topics include abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development. Languages include C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML. Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. The on-campus version of CS50x, CS50, is Harvard’s largest course.

Students who earn a satisfactory score on 9 problem sets (i.e., programming assignments) and a final project are eligible for a certificate. This is a self-paced course? you may take CS50x on your own schedule.

HarvardX pursues the science of learning. By registering as an online learner in an HX course, you will also participate in research about learning. R

What you will learn in CS50’s Introduction to Computer Science?

  • A broad and robust understanding of computer science and programming.
  • How to think algorithmically and solve programming problems efficiently.
  • Concepts like abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development.
  • Familiarity in a number of languages, including C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML.
  • How to engage with a vibrant community of like-minded learners from all levels of experience.

Final Project for CS50’s Introduction to Computer Science

The climax of this course is its final project. The final project is your opportunity to take your newfound savvy with programming out for a spin and develop your very own piece of software. So long as your project draws upon this course’s lessons, the nature of your project is entirely up to you.

  • You may implement your project in any language(s).
  • You are welcome to utilize infrastructure other than the CS50 IDE.
  • All that is asked is that you build something of interest to you, that you solve an actual problem, that you impact your community, or that you change the world.
  • Strive to create something that outlives this course.
  • You are allowed an opportunity to collaborate with one or two classmates for this final project.
  • It is expected that every student in any such group contributes equally to the design and implementation of that group’s project.

PROS: Reliable course material, the UX is crisp & most importantly, the course content is phenomenal. This course takes you through the proverbial weeds of computer science. Started from an bottom up approach, learning about how computers only understand binary. The problem sets are pretty good. Instructor does an outstanding job of making it interesting and easy to submit problem sets and get them graded quickly.
CONS: Ensure that you know python before taking this course. This course is not for beginners. You jump right into problems sets that are extremely challenging. Very superfluous unless you know your C and HTML.
