Intermediate Fortran

Intermediate Level Programming Concepts Implemented in Fortran

Start improving your skills using one of the few languages directly targeting use for high-performance scientific and engineering applications. I’ll show you some techniques that make use of more advanced features of the language, and how you can apply some best practices from software development in general to programming in Fortran. If you’ve taken my previous course, have some basic experience in Fortran, or are interested in learning how you can apply techniques you’re familiar with from other languages to Fortran, this course will help you improve your skills.

What you’ll learn

  • Intermediate level skills programming in Fortran.

Course Content

  • Introduction –> 2 lectures • 10min.
  • Procedure Attributes –> 4 lectures • 36min.
  • Data Structures –> 4 lectures • 1hr.
  • Patterns and Principles –> 4 lectures • 1hr 5min.

Intermediate Fortran

Requirements

  • Understand the basic fundamentals and syntax of the Fortran programming language.

Start improving your skills using one of the few languages directly targeting use for high-performance scientific and engineering applications. I’ll show you some techniques that make use of more advanced features of the language, and how you can apply some best practices from software development in general to programming in Fortran. If you’ve taken my previous course, have some basic experience in Fortran, or are interested in learning how you can apply techniques you’re familiar with from other languages to Fortran, this course will help you improve your skills.

I can’t cover all the techniques and practices out there in a single course, but this should give you an idea of what’s possible, and help you put some tools in your tool box. I’ll even show you how I have some of the tools I use for development configured to be more convenient and helpful.

We start with some features of the language you’ll need to be familiar with to be successful, explore some common data structures in software development, and demonstrate some patterns and practices shown to be useful in other fields of programming. I’ll show you some example that demonstrates a concept, and then have you complete 1 or 2 exercises where you’ll extend the example using the techniques we’ve talked about.

By the end of the course, if you’ve understand the material and completed the exercises, you should see your skills as a software developer dramatically improved.
