Course Description

Java Programming Basics is a popular and widely used programming language that was first introduced by Sun Microsystems in 1995. Since then, it has become a staple language for developers worldwide, thanks to its object-oriented approach, platform independence, and ease of use. Java Programming Basics is a course that aims to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and techniques of programming with Java. The course is designed for beginners and assumes no prior programming knowledge or experience. The course starts with an overview of the Java language and its history. Students will learn about the syntax, structure, and components of a Java program, including data types, variables, operators, and control structures. They will also learn how to create, compile, and run a simple Java program using an integrated development environment (IDE) such as Eclipse or NetBeans. The course then moves on to more advanced topics, such as object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts like classes, objects, inheritance, and polymorphism. Students will learn how to design, implement, and test their own Java classes and objects, and how to use them in their programs. The course also covers important topics such as exception handling, file I/O, and multithreading. Students will learn how to handle errors and exceptions in their Java programs, how to read and write files, and how to create and manage threads in their programs. Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to practice their programming skills through a series of programming assignments and exercises. They will also have access to a range of resources, including online tutorials, code libraries, and support forums, to help them learn and troubleshoot any problems they encounter. Upon completion of the Java Programming Basics course, students will have a solid understanding of the Java language and its core programming concepts. They will be able to create, compile, and run their own Java programs, and will be well-prepared to continue their studies in more advanced Java programming topics. The skills and knowledge gained from this course will be invaluable for anyone interested in pursuing a career in software development or programming. Author: Cezanne Camacho, Asser Samak (Udacity)
