Professional Certificate in
Java Programming: A Hands-on Introduction
Codio

What you will learn

  • Develop a Java foundation with variables, operators, conditionals, and loops.
  • Manipulate arrays of data, strings of text, as well as text and CSV files.
  • Define and use custom functions to improve code readability.
  • Architect larger programs using object-oriented principles.

Learn Java by doing! Codio courses are designed to engage and excite beginners. Instead of reading or watching a video, you’ll be asked to write and run code (don’t worry, we provide code snippets to help get you started!). Course materials are presented in smaller, easier-to-manage formats, making this an excellent course for learners with no prior programming experience.

This program is intended for people without programming experience who seek to develop Java programming skills and learn about the underlying computer science concepts that will allow them to pick up other programming languages quickly. In these three courses, you will cover everything from fundamentals to object-oriented design.

These topics will help prepare you to write basic programs that help them automate repetitive tasks such as modifying large files; architect larger applications into readable, maintainable, and scale-able code bases; understand the fundamentals of computer science presented in Java to ease learning of other programming languages; and develop a sense of comfort and confidence while programming.
