Course Description

This course, offered by the University of Pennsylvania, is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of Java programming and object-oriented programming (OOP). Through a combination of lectures, hands-on exercises, and projects, students will learn how to write, debug, and run Java programs, as well as understand the key principles of OOP. The course begins with an overview of basic programming concepts, such as variables, control structures, and data types. From there, students will dive into the world of OOP, learning about classes, objects, methods, and inheritance. They will also explore important software engineering concepts, such as encapsulation, abstraction, and modularity. Throughout the course, students will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they work on real-world programming challenges. They will also learn how to use essential computer programming tools, such as integrated development environments (IDEs) and version control systems. By the end of the course, students will have a solid foundation in Java programming and O
