Get started programming in Java with this three-hour capsule course. Learn how to create classes, control program logic and flow, and build basic graphical user interfaces (GUIs).
- Hi, I'm Peggy Fisher. And welcome to Up and Running with Java. Did you know that in July, 2014, IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, published a list of the top 10 programming languages. And guess what was number 1? If you said Java, you are correct. With C as a close second. Java is designed to allow the creation of programs that are platform independent. With little or no modifications.
It is also a popular choice for web applications. During this course we will take a quick tour of a sample integrated development environment and do a review of important topics that are specific to Java. Such as data types, expressions, decisions, loops, reading and writing from the console and using the IDE debugging feature. Next, we will move on to discussing classes, objects and data structures. Finally, we will be reading from and writing to external files using Java, including error handling.
Along the way you will be challenged with writing programs that include all the features that we'll be discussing. I'm Peggy Fisher, and I'm here to get you Up and Running with Java.
