Computers operate under the hood by following programs: sequences of instructions of what to do, along the lines of “add 7 to this variable”, “write on the screen”, “proceed this way if x is 7, this other way otherwise”. Programs exist at all levels of abstractions, from the very low-level and verbose assembly language understood by hardware, over the concise and powerful high-level languages used by modern programmers, to domain-specific languages used in special-purpose situations.
This course teaches the basics of Java programming, enabling you to work practically in am modern high-level language.
Object Oriented analysis, design, and implementation Programming in Java:
classes, objects, methods, fields, variables, simple types, expressions, statements, declarations, conditionals, lazy evaluation, repetition, recursion, class libraries, regular expressions collections, arrays, simple graphical user interface, static vs dynamic typing, virtual dispatching, generic types, class design, abstract classes, interfaces, encapsulation, test and documentation, file input/output, exceptions.
Formal prerequisitesYou should be able to use your computer to send e-mails, browse the web, install new software. You don't need any programming experience to take this course. The course is only open to ITU MSc Software Development - Software Design students.
