Learning activities and methodology
This optional course won't be offered during 2010-21 and the specific activities due to COVID-19 will not apply. The activities in a normal situation are described: - Theory. The course will be given through lectures to teach the basic concepts of Object Oriented Programming (OOP). . Active participation of students and discussion will be encouraged. - Practical exercises and computer sessions. Lectures will be complemented with practical sessions in computer rooms where practical exercises will be done, allowing to apply the theoretical knowledge.
