This specialization 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 four courses, you will cover everything from fundamentals to object-oriented design. These topics will help prepare you to write anything from small programs to automate repetitive tasks to larger applications, giving you enough understanding of Java to tackle more specialized topics such as Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
Learners will create a variety of practical projects including helpful programs that can speed up everyday tasks such as an automated file updater. Later projects will have graphical output utilizing libraries such as Swing, and even create animations.
