An entry-level course taught by David J. Malan, CS50x teaches students how to think algorithmically and solve problems efficiently. </li><li>Topics include abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development. </li><li>Languages include C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML. </li><li>Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. </li><li>The on-campus version of CS50x, CS50, is Harvard's largest course.</li><li>Students who earn a satisfactory score on 9 problem sets (i.e., programming assignments) and a final project are eligible for a certificate. </li><li>This is a self-paced course you may take CS50x on your own schedule. </li></ul> <BR><u>What you'll learn</u><ul type="disc"> <li>A broad and robust understanding of computer science and programming</li><li>How to think algorithmically and solve programming problems efficiently</li><li>Concepts like abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development</li><li>Familiarity in a number of languages, including C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML</li><li>How to engage with a vibrant community of like-minded learners from all levels of experience</li><li>How to develop and present a final programming project to your peers </li></ul> </FONT><hr><FONT COLOR = "0000FF"><B>Comment: </B><BR><BR>For the Course Website, follow this <a name="W3803W"></a><A HREF = "https://www.edx.org/course/cs50s-introduction-computer-science-harvardx-cs50x" TARGET = "_top">Link</A>.<BR><BR><HR><BR><U><B>In-Page Footnotes</U></B><a name="On-Page_Link_P22012_1"></A><BR><BR><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Return_P22012_1"><B>Footnote 1</B></A></U>: <ul type="disc"><li>This is the third time I've attempted to take this course.
