Learn Fortran with this Fortran course. The course ‘The Fortran programming language’ covers one of the most important programming languages for numeric and scientific computing.
What is Fortran?
Fortran was developed in the 1950s by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). The language was intended for use in scientific and technical applications. It is the most widely used numerical programming language that exists. Many important computational models are written in Fortran, including climate models, ocean models and chemistry models. In spite of their long history, many of these legacy codes are still being further developed today. That is why knowledge of Fortran is still very relevant.
What will you learn during this 3-day Fortran course?
In this cours you will learn how to program in Fortran. You’ll learn the syntax of the language and how to make use of constructs that the language offers to execute common tasks. These topics are trained with practical lab exercises under the guidance of the instructor. The course will focus on the use of modern Fortran versions like Fortran90 and Fortran95 but will also touch on topics related to older versions of the language. The course is not specific to any operating system: it is relevant for e.g. both Windows and Linux.
