Programming theory

A booklet containing lots of generic programming theory. The topics include:

  • What is a program?
  • High level languages and machine code
  • Design methodologies
  • Programming construct definitions
  • Program constructs exemplified in pseudocode (with several tasks to teach pupils design and pseudocode at the same time)
  • Readability
  • Types of errors
  • Interpreters vs compilers

The content is geared towards the Scottish system, but editable files are included so it should be possible to edit the content to match whichever content the user wants.
