Fundamentals of Java Programming, Level 1
Fundamentals of Java Programming, Level 1 is suited to people who have some programming experience. With this experience, you will benefit from the systematic approach to learning Java. The course starts with a conceptual understanding of Object Oriented Programming and helps you develop applications that solve business problems.
This is a hands-on course with emphasis on language fundamentals. Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well-suited for use on the World Wide Web. Topics include Java Language API (Application Programming Interface), Java classes, objects, and applications using the language. You will utilize hands-on labs and exercises to apply theories learned. At the end of the course, you will able to:
- Implement, compile, test and run Java programs
- Understand how to include arithmetic operators and constants in a Java program
- Make use of members of classes found in the Java API (such as the Math, String class)
- Demonstrate the ability to employ various types of selection constructs in a Java program
- Employ a hierarchy of Java classes to provide a solution to a given set of requirements
- Demonstrate the ability to employ repetition constructs in a Java program such as loop
- Demonstrate the ability to use simple data structures like arrays in a Java program
Fundamentals of Java Programming, Level 2
In this course you will learn practical concepts and skills needed to develop real-world Java applications. You will learn how to develop GUI-based Java and Advanced User Interface Objects. Both AWT and Swing packages will be covered and used in developing Web applications and standalone applications. This course also covers multithreading, Generics, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Java Server Pages (JSPs), concurrency, and basic Servlets. This hands-on, second level training is recommended for anyone who has taken an introductory Java course or PCATT's "Java Level 1" course.
At the end of the course, you are expected to:
- Develop GUI application using AWT and Swing
- Implement exception handling in Java
- Implement Multithreading
- Handle User Interface Events and Listeners
- Handle security implementations in Java
- Develop Advanced User Interface Objects
- Implement Database Connectivity
- Develop Basic JSP and Servlets
Programming Essentials in Python
Why learn Python? Python is a general-purpose language that can be used for web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and scientific computing. It’s flexible, scalable, and easy to understand. Rapid job growth and high salaries for Python developers makes it an attractive skill if you have the aptitude to learn this programming language.
This course covers all the basics of programming in Python as well as general computer programming concepts and techniques. The course also familiarizes you with the object-oriented approach. You will have access to hands-on practice materials, quizzes, and assessments to learn how to utilize the skills and knowledge gained on the course and interact with real-life programming tasks and situations.
At the end of this hands-on course, you should be familiar with general computer programming concepts like conditional execution, loops, Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment, as well as with general coding techniques and object-oriented programming.
Programming Essentials in Python helps prepare you for the Python Certified Associate Programmer certification exam (PCAP). PCAP is a professional certification that measures your ability to accomplish coding tasks related to the basics of programming in the Python language and the fundamental notions and techniques used in object-oriented programming.
A Statement of Achievement will be issued to participants who successfully demonstrate competencies at the completion of the course. This qualifies you for a 51% discount off the PCAP certification taken through Pearson VUE computer-based testing.
Coding with Altino for Non-Coders
Altino is hardware loaded with sensors in a shape of a car. Coding with Altino is a fun way to learn and teach core programming languages such as C, C++, Java, and specialized visual coding tools such as Android and Scratch. With Altino you focus on coding, where with Robotics you focus on design.
In this course, you will learn the basics of how to bring an Altino car to life by sending a set of instructions to solve situational challenges. At the end of this course you will be able to program an autonomous driving car, and since the focus is on developing software you can explore the use of this coding machine to create projects that solve other problems. You will use Arduino and/or Raspberry Pi microcontrollers to enhance your experience.
Middle and high school students (and adults) will enjoy learning to code with the Altino hardware.
