Course Description
This course introduces fundamental programming concepts and techniques which are based on object-oriented programming using the programming languages Java and is intended for all who plan to use computer programming in their studies and careers. The basic elements of structured programming are revisited, and advanced elements of programming languages such as file and exception handling are also covered. To facilitate the use of object-oriented programming, elements of object-oriented design are also introduced with the comparison with the language Python. Course homework involves significant programming. Attendance and participation are highly expected.
