# COMP1917: Assumed Knowledge

We don't assume you know anything about computing.

Well, we assume you know how to use a mouse and type on a keyboard (or are willing to *very* quickly learn these skills) but that is about it. In particular we don't assume you already know how to program. Many COMP1917 students will already know some programming and many will know nothing about programming. We'll teach assuming that you are in the latter category. If you happen to be in the former category you may find the first few weeks a bit easier than the rest of the course - or you may not.

We assume you know a bit of algebra, or are willing to learn.
