Description

Want to get started with object-oriented programming in a cloud environment?

This Learning Path will get you started with object-oriented programming in Java 9. First, we introduce you to the basics of Java - the core services, syntax, functions, and modules. We then show you how to get started writing functions and applications - applying object-oriented principles and using Java libraries. You can then progress on to our Advanced Java Programming Learning Path. This is a must-do learning path for anyone looking to expand their development skills!  

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and explain what Java is and the different versions of Java
  • Create Java classes 
  • Implement Java language statements, strings, fields, arrays, and packages 
  • Apply object orientated development principles
  • Apply Java tools such as utility classes, Java date /time as JShell

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in learning to program with an object-oriented language.  

Prerequisites

  • Basic understanding of computing environments 
  • Basic understanding of programming concepts 
  • Familiarity with working in command-line interfaces

Content Outline

The Learning Path provides over 10 hours of instructional content delivered in 8 high definition instructional video lectures, 6 hands-on lab exercises and a final preparation exam. The content we cover is as follows:
