Version 8.0

The five-day timeline of this course explicitly targets less experienced programmers, providing them with a thorough step-by-step introduction to Java programming. It lays a firm foundation for further study of Java. There are a large number of example programs and many labs.

An important thrust of this course is to teach programming from an object-oriented perspective. It is often difficult for programmers trained originally in a procedural language to start "thinking in objects." This course introduces object-oriented concepts very early, and Java is developed in a way that leverages its object orientation. Most of the course emphasizes simple classes without inheritance. The last chapter introduces inheritance and polymorphism, along with interfaces and collections.

This revision of the course targets the Java 8 language and Core API.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the basic principles of object-oriented programming
