Introduction to Java[edit | edit source]

  • School of Computer Science
  • Catagory: Programming Language

Course Outline[edit | edit source]

This course deals with the basic principles of the Java programming language. To be fully competent in both Java and programming, at least two courses will be needed, an Introductory course, and an Algorithms course. This course is the first of those two.

    • Please note that there is currently no instructor for this course, and that the page is still being built. Both myself and other people will be updating it over the next few weeks.

There are two modules in this course.

The first module is Introduction To Programming. It covers variables, indentation, functions, and the other basic aspects of propgramming; aspects that are shared amongst all programming languages.

  • If you have already taken this module from another course, you do not need to take it here.

Instead, use the first module as a reference, and proceed to module two.

The second module is Introduction To Java, and covers the aspects of Java that are unique to that language.
