We will deal with basic principles of imperative and object-oriented programming using Java. By the end of the course, participants will be able to develop Java programs independently if they have participated intensively and worked on the many examples and tasks. Apart from providing an understanding of object orientation and inheritance this course concentrates on practical tasks, e.g. graphic programming.
