Open Source Programming Certificate
The Open Source Programming certificate series is comprised of five courses covering intermediate to advanced topics in open source programming using Perl, Python, PHP, SQL, and Linux. Courses are delivered via the CodeRunner IDE and require only that you be online and able to use a browser.
Upon completion of this certificate program, you will be able to:
- Develop Perl Scripts that use variables, conditionals, interpolation, arrays, lists, hashes, subroutines, loops, formatted printing, data mapping, and sorting.
- Implement Perl scripts that work with external files.
- Design PHP scripts that use variables, operators, control structures, loops, arrays, strings, functions, cookies, and sessions.
- Create PHP scripts that obtain input from the user and interact with a database.
- Apply basic database theory to design a relational SQL database, SQL tables and create complex queries.
- Develop Python scripts that use expressions, variables, conditionals, loops, lists, sets, dicts, functions, objects and exceptions.
- Navigate the Linux file system and assign permissions to files and directories.
- Use find, grep, and regular expressions to search files and directories.
