Course Overview

The course content includes 48 lessons and 2 assignments.

Get started with Java by installing all the necessary (free) software that you’ll be using to create apps throughout the entire Bootcamp.

Learn all the important “nitty-gritty” details of the Core Java language.

This includes things like common data types, control structures and how to read input from the user.

Java is an Object Oriented Programming language (OOP), you’ll learn what that means in this week’s lessons.

Plus you’ll learn why it’s so important to make use of methods when coding, as they are at the root of why coding is so powerful and helpful in the real-world.

In the real-world, you’ll be dealing with files (and Databases) all the time. This section provides great practice for reading / parsing data from a file.

You’ll also learn some common coding conventions that should be used when designing real-world apps.
