Java Programming

Ages: 11 - 18                                  Skills Level: Beginner - Advance              Tools: Java, Eclipse/intellij     
 

Learn the fundamentals of Java and masters it, one of the most relevant and long-standing programming languages in the world today. Java has dozens of uses from game development to business apps. No matter where you are in your coding journey—whether just starting out, building an application for colleges, or getting ready to ace the AP Computer Science exam—you’ll hone your Java skills with console applications and programming challenges. 

Computer science embraces problem solving, hardware, algorithms, and perspectives that help people utilize computers to address real-world problems in contemporary life.

The course emphasizes both object-oriented and imperative problem solving and design with fundamental topics that include problem solving, design strategies and methodologies, organization of data (data structures), approaches to processing data (algorithms), analysis of potential solutions, and the ethical and social implications of computing.

This course/level is consists of 24 classes.  Each course typically takes 3-6 months to complete This depends on the student's dedication to homework, their previous experience, and the difficulty of course material. Our instructors move at the pace of the student, taking extra time to reinforce concepts as needed.
