OOP with Java, Course presentation Thomas Broussard

Global summary

This page describes the two main parts of this course. The whole course should bring the student to an effective level in OO conception and Java programming, enough to be autonomous in a professional environment

The course is divided is organized in several lectures, they are presented below with an incremental difficulty

Practising

During all these lectures, the student will be brought practise a lot : a combination of exercises and semester project are integrated with the course content

Java has been my starting point. I practise it every day as my job and I'm very fond of this language. I find it so powerful and at the same time so simple! A newbie can make great things in Java, although the produced code would be in this case most inefficient and not optimized nor reusable.

Pre-requisites

If you start from the beginning, there is no minimal skill to have

Advanced section requires at least OO concepts and Java language knowledge

During all these lectures, the student will be brought practise a lot : a combination of exercises and semester project are integrated with the course content

Projects

Practising Bases

The scope of this project beginning is to build the core of our application. It will assume all the backend treatments, focusing on code basics, and providing a strong base for the rest of our design

Project description

Advanced Java Web Programming

That project will continue thanks to the result of the "Practising bases" project. We will develop a web application that allows user to manage Identities graphically
