Fortran For Beginners
What you'll learn
- The basics of programming in Fortran
- Computer running Windows, OSX or Linux
Learn one of the oldest programming languages. Fortran is still in common use for high-performance scientific and engineering applications. If you're new to programming, and especially if you're in a math, science or engineering field, this is a great course to get started with.
We talk about getting your computer initially set up, programming fundamentals, including variables, looping and branching constructs, modules and derived types. We even go into some tips for growing and organizing your programs towards the end of the course.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone new to programming
- Anyone interested in learning Fortran
I'm a Software Developer and Consultant focusing on Fortran. I've got over 8 years of experience working on large and complicated, high-performance Fortran programs, and I'm proficient in nearly a dozen other programming languages. I've got experience in DevOps, testing, build systems, and software architecture. I've created an open source testing framework for Fortran, and a handful of other open source libraries for Fortran.
