Let's take a look at what you are going to be learning in this title. You are mainly going to be learning about object-oriented programming. But here is what you are going to build. This is a slideshow application and it has animations for images fading in and the interactivity is controlled by clicking on the image or by clicking on the Next and Previous buttons. So throughout this title, we are going to build this application from scratch and we are going to build it using classes. I'll show you how to organize your classes to most effectively build an application like this. So along the way, you are going to learn complex programming concepts and the end result is a slideshow that you can use for your own images.
We will also talk about how to add extra functionality to the slideshow and how you can apply the same concepts to create your own unique applications. So I hope you are excited because I sure am!
