Java is an "object-oriented programming language that is used as the brain that runs intelligent application devices" on Android and iOS systems. Java is one of the most widely used programming languages given its ease and ability to program interactive environments and/or applications.
Java is an extension to the C++ language developed by James Gosling in 1992. This course offers beginners an introduction to the meaning of a "programming language" and "software syntax" in general. Together we’ll learn the steps and basics of writing a program. We’ll recognize the types of data in computer and how a programming language handles these different types of data. This course also offers an introduction to mathematical operations and the steps to determine how the program will work through decision making and different types of conditional sentences.
In the first week, you will learn the general formula for writing a sentence in Java and adding notes and identifiers to the text of the code. You will also be able to learn how to write your first Java language program and use the Control, Print, and PrintIn controls
In the second week, you will be introduced to variables, their types, the terms of assignment, the entry of data and mathematical operations and their priorities, and you will be able to print the program outputs that you create.
In the third week, you will learn about mathematical functions and their uses and conditional functions and their operations in addition to the increase and decrease of numbers and complex sentences and their integration.
In the fourth week you will learn about conditional sentences, examples and overlapping conditional sentences.
In the fifth week, you will learn about the ‘if-else’ clause and the ‘switch’ clause.
