In the Pascal Programming course participants learn the generally applicable and original procedural language Pascal for developing reliable and efficient applications. Pascal was created in the early 1970s with the aim of teaching programming as a systematic discipline. Pascal is based on the Algol language and has gained a lot of following in academic circles. Pascal also supports object-oriented programming and the GUI Framework Delphi is based on Pascal.
The course starts with an overview of the program structure of Pascal, the coding style, the division into Units and the Scope rules in Pascal. Attention is also paid to compiler directives, conditional defines and include files.
Next the language syntax of Pascal is discussed with variables, standard data types and control flow constructs such as if clauses and for loops. User Defined Types, Enumerated Types and Exception Handling are also treated.
Special attention is paid to procedures and functions in Pascal. The definition and invocation of procedures is explained as well as the passing of different types of parameters such as reference, default and constant parameters. Also recursive functions and function overloading are treated.
Then it's time to consider arrays and records in Pascal. With regard to arrays, array indexing, array boundaries and static and dynamic arrays are explained and with regard to records Record Data Types, Variant Records and Records with Methods and Constructors are discussed.
Classes and Objects in Pascal are also part of the program of the course. The Pascal implementation of object oriented concepts such as encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and abstract classes is treated.
Finally the course ends with the explanation of parameterized types, also known as generics. Generic constraints, generic results and also smart pointers are part of the subject matter.
The course Pascal Programming is intended for anyone who wants to learn programming in the programming language Pascal.
To participate in this course basic knowledge of programming in another programming language is beneficial to the understanding but is not required.
The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. The theory is further explained through demos. After discussing a module there is the possibility to practice. Course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.
After successful completion of the course participants receive an official certificate Pascal Programming.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
