Semester:Efterår 2016 
Udbydes, softwareudvikling og -teknologi (sdt) 
Omfang i ECTS:7,50 
Min. antal deltagere:
Forventet antal deltagere:40 
Maks. antal deltagere:76 
Formelle forudsætninger:You should be able to use your computer to send e-mails, browse the web, install new software, and use a command prompt e.g. a "DOS-window" under Windows.

You don't need any programming experience to take this course.

This course is not open to SDT-students from the AC Track.
This course is not open to single-subject students and guest students. 
Læringsmål:After the course the student should be able to:

  • Solve small programming tasks in Java using simple data types, arrays,
    loops, methods, classes, and objects.
  • Implement programs with simple input/output.
  • Implement programs with simple Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).
  • Use selected class libraries. Therefore, you should be able to characterize the functionality of a Java class based on its documentation.
  • Structure programs using the notions of inheritance, interfaces, method
    signatures, and exceptions.
Fagligt indhold:This course or equivalent is a prerequisite for most technical courses at the IT University.
The course will introduce programming in Java and object-oriented programming in general.

Among others, the following topics will be introduced:

  • Variables, types, and values
  • Expressions, statements, loops, and methods
  • Recursion
  • Arrays and Strings
  • Classes and objects
  • Class hierarchies, inheritance, and interfaces
  • Exceptions
  • Graphical user interfaces
Læringsaktiviteter:14 ugers undervisning bestående af forelæsninger og øvelser

14 weeks of teaching consisting of lectures and exercises. In the lectures, the students will be presented with the terminology of programming, and through many examples (written from scratch at the lectures) become familiar with the thought process needed for programming. At the exercises, the students will write their own small programs, applying what they have learned in the lectures. Each week includes a mandatory hand-in, which consists of a simple programming assignment, training the student in writing code on their own, which is a needed skill for the final 24 hour take home exam. 

Obligatoriske aktivititer:There will be 8 (from 11) mandatory exercises which must be handed in and approved in order to register for the exam. The deadline for each assignment is the following Monday.
Up to 3 hand in delays are accepted without further reasoning.
Be aware: The student will receive the grade NA (not attended) at the ordinary exam, if the mandatory activities are not approved and the student will use an exam attempt. 
Eksamensform og -beskrivelse:D22: Aflevering med mundtlig eksamen suppleret af aflevering., (7-scale, external exam)

The assignment for the production, to be submitted as a part of the examination, is released 24 hours before the submission deadline.

The submission is to be done in learnIT.
Please note, that the productions may be subjected to a test for plagiarism.

The duration of the oral examination is 30 minutes. The mark (grade) is given on the basis of the oral examination and the production.
