Course description

Learning to Program with Java

This hands on Java Programming course provides an introduction to programming using the Java language. Students are introduced to the application development cycle, structure of programs, and specific language syntax. The course introduces important algorithmic constructs, string and character manipulation, dynamic memory allocation, standard I/O, and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. The course explains the use of inheritance and polymorphism early on so the students can practice extensively in the hands on labs. Structured programming techniques and error handling are emphasized. The course includes the processing of command line arguments and environment variables so students will be able to write flexible, user-friendly programs. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

This class was great. It provided exactly what I was looking for, which was to solidify OO concepts. I plant on pursuing Java as a career now and feel that I'm off to a great start.

The instructor did a fantastic job teaching this course. I do have programming experience (have not programmed in years) but this was a great refresher. To say I simply enjoyed this course would be an understatement!
