In this unit, you will learn how to program using the Java programming language. It is assumed that you have little or no programming experience so you will be guided through the basics of application development using classes and objects. You will learn about the parts of a program including variables, types, and methods, and learn how to take input and produce output. A key aspect of this unit is practical, hands-on, simple application development and testing which you will do in an industry standard integrated development environment (IDE).
