About this course

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
.

What you’ll learn

  • Basic knowledge on algorithms and Java programming
  • Develop programs with conditionals and loops
  • Design and implement recursive algorithms
  • Understand basic mechanisms of the OOP paradigm
  • Use and interpret the API of some of the most common Java classes
  • Develop simple programs in Java

Course Syllabus

 

1. From the Calculator to the Computer
The first section introduces basic programming concepts, such as values and expressions, as well as making decisions when implementing algorithms and developing programs.

2. State Transformation
The second section introduces state transformation including representation of data and programs as well as conditional repetition.

3. Functional Abstraction
The third section addresses the organization of code in a program through methods, which are invoked to carry out a task and return a result as answer. Recursion, as a powerful mechanism in the invocation of methods, is also covered this week.

4. Object Encapsulation
The fourth section introduces the object oriented programming (OOP) paradigm, which enables the modeling of complex programs in Java through objects and classes. The concept of inheritance as the basis for reusing code and simplifying programs in Java is studied in this week.

5. Packaging
The last section aims to study the reuse of code through third-party classes that are already developed and that we can incorporate to our programs to perform specific actions, and reduce the number of lines that we need to code.

Part 2  Introduction to Java Programming: Starting to code in Java

About this course

This is an introductory course to learn programming with Java designed to teach how to code good programs in Java, understanding “good” as both correct and efficient. Basic principles of software engineering will be introduced to make it easier for our future self and others to reuse code. Ethical issues and the intellectual property of our programs will also be addressed in the last part of this course. Examples and case studies will be provided, so that learners can implement simple but increasingly complex programs in Java.

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 course is designed taking into account the subset and recommendations of the College Board in order to prepare learners for the Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science A exam.
.

What you’ll learn

  • Detect and correct common programming errors at compile time
  • Detect and correct common programming errors at run time using debugging tools
  • Check that the program does what it has to using unit testing processes
  • Compare the efficiency of two programs in terms of the resources used
  • Model simple programs using basic software engineering techniques
  • Determine if a program has been developed respecting ethical considerations

Course Syllabus

 

1. Debugging
The first week starts from basic errors that occur at compile time and at run time when developing programs, and introduces debugging as a powerful and flexible strategy to detect and correct errors. The Eclipse IDE Debugger will be used to illustrate the debugging process with practical examples.

2. Reasoning & Testing
The second week addresses formal mechanisms to test that programs do what is expected of them, introducing unit testing processes, particularized in the JUnit framework for testing programs written in the Java language.

3. Complexity
The third week analyzes programs from the point of view of efficiency in the use of resources, such as computation time and storage, and presents simple mechanisms to improve the efficiency of Java programs.

4. Software Engineering
The fourth week introduces basic principles of software engineering with the aim to improve robustness, modularity, reusability and maintainability of programs.

5. Ethics
The last week studies ethical issues related to software development, including privacy, legal issues, intellectual property rights, and social ramifications.
