Introduction to Java for Non-C Programmers Course Outline

 (4 days)
Version 5.0

Overview
This course is paced to provide a solid foundation in Java™ for programmers without syntax experience in a C-based language. Intensive and hands-on, the course emphasizes becoming productive quickly as a Java programmer. Besides learning the basic structure and syntax of the language, students will also learn object-oriented principles and how they are applied in Java applications. The course then covers the I/O streams and collections API packages. This course is current to Java 7 and uses the Eclipse IDE.

Audience: Programmers who want to move into the Java language, but have no C, C++, or C# background.

Prerequisites
Student should either have prior programming experience or should have taken a entry-level programming course from ONLC Training Centers. Two courses that would provide this level of experience are our 3-day Excel VBA Programming (Visual Basic for Applications) or our 5-day Microsoft Introduction to Programming (course 10975). These two classes are listed on the Java programming overview web page.
