Abstract: Digital nations have become dependent on computer applications. One of the most important part of literacy in today's word are the basics of computer applications development and usage. Programming seems to be difficult to learn, therefore, several educational programming languages were developed, so that more people could develop the applications. Modern technologies mean that computer programming is not a skill reserved only for a small group of specialists. Programmers can become people of different ages and interests. The article addresses the problem of basic programming courses for non-computer science students.
