The course language is German.

The aim of the course is to teach basic techniques that allow for given problems to develop solutions (in form of an algorithm) and to implement the algorithm as a program. Topics included in the lecture are

  • Development of algorithms
  • Oject-oriented programming (in Java)

No prior knowledge in programming are required.

Components of the Course

The course comprises

  • a lecture with two dates per week (Thursdays 1530h-1700h and Fridays 1530h-1700h),
  • an exercise (Mondays 1530h-1700h),
  • and a tutorial (Wednesdays).

Registration for the tutorials is mandatory, as the exercise sheets are handed in and corrected via ILIAS (see below). However, attendance is not compulsory. Successful completion of the exercise sheets is a prerequisite for taking the exam.

ILIAS and Zoom

We use an ILIAS course for the lecture and the tutorials, respectively. It is absolutely mandatory that you register to the course in ILIAS to get access to the relevant material. You may find them here:

In the current term (HWS 2020), most events will be offered online only using ZOOM. The corresponding ZOOM links can be found in ILIAS as well. 

Lecture and Exercise

The lecture is offered as inverted lecture, with a weekly meeting on Thursdays for questions about the lecture material, while Fridays serve as backup slots. Lecture videos and slides will be made available on ILIAS.

The exercise takes place on Mondays. Both will be using ZOOM.

Time: 1530h - 1700h

The exact links can be found in ILIAS (see above).

Please note that during the first week of lectures (CW 40) there will be an introductory lecture on Monday (28 Sep., 1530h).
