Course Description

In this introductory Java programming course, you will be introduced to powerful concepts such as functional abstraction, the object oriented programming (OOP) paradigm and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Examples and case studies will be provided so that you can implement simple programs on your own or collaborate with peers.

Emphasis is put on immediate feedback and on having a fun experience. Programming knowledge is not only useful to be able to program today’s devices such as computers and smartphones. It also opens the door to computational thinking, i.e. the application of computing techniques to every-day processes.

This edition is an improved version of the course released in April 2015.

I am a Computer Science engineer, but didn't pay attention to programming in my college days. I did the free version of this course till around Week 4. Last week was somewhat left. I do not blame the course or the instructors for me not completing the course. The course starts fabulously! It develops your interests in the subject and explains many concepts in lucid and clear form. But it remains so only until that old and aged contract killer Carlos(In India, Carlos means a french contract killer - Refer to the Raj Comic 'Dogamaar' of superhero 'Doga') is lecturing, ie Week 3. After that, the course starts to degrade. There are many mistakes(big and small), which I didn't expect from a course from such prestigious university. There is Zero support or response to/for any query/problem, so there's that. May be they respond only if you are paying and going for a verified certificate, or may be it was because the course was archived, s...
