This course presents the fundamentals of programming using Java and covers object-oriented programming, constructors, flow control statements, data types, inheritance, data hiding, abstraction, and the Java library.
Write small to medium sized computer programs using the Java language.
Use core programming concepts including Variables, Control flow statements (branching & looping), Methods, and Input/Output
Implement object-oriented programming techniques including Encapsulation, Abstraction, Inheritance, and Polymorphism
About this course:
Powerful enough to build large N-tiered Internet and intranet applications, Java is a well-designed object-oriented language that allows rapid development of programs. Due to its simplicity, it also is an excellent first-time programming language to learn. This hands-on course presents the fundamentals of programming using Java and covers object-oriented programming, classes, constructors, flow control statements, data types, methods, inheritance, data hiding, abstraction, and the Java library. Students gain experience through a number of programming projects during the course, and instruction stresses practical programming skills to prepare them for follow-on Java courses.
Requires computer work outside of class, as well as a computer with any operating system that supports Java; familiarity with that operating system; and the ability to create files and folders, use an Internet browser and email, create zipped files to send as email attachments, and download software from the Internet for class and programming assignments. For students with little or no programming experience, we recommend taking Fundamentals of Software Development before taking this course.
