Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming
In this course, you will learn some of the concepts, fundamental syntax, and thought processes behind true object-oriented programming. Completion of this course will give you the tools and basic knowledge you need to learn more specific object-oriented programming techniques in languages such as Java, C++, C#, and VB.NET.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of classes, constructors, objects, and instantiation.
- Access variables and modifier keywords.
- Develop methods using parameters and return values.
- Build control structures in an object-oriented environment.
- Convert data types using API methods and objects.
- Design object-oriented programs using scope, inheritance, and other design techniques.
- Create an object-oriented application using Java packages, APIs. and interfaces, in conjunction with classes and objects.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing your own Java applet-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and provide needed experience. Besides a browser and internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
Prerequisites: Experience using web browsers and email. This class is meant for the complete IT beginner.
