Introduction to Java for Procedural Programmers

Course Summary

The Introduction to Java for Procedural Programmers training course is designed to demonstrate the migration to the Object-Oriented (OO) programming paradigm.

The course begins with an in-depth look into understanding the Java programming language. Next, it introduces OO programming in Java. The course concludes by examining threading with java.lang Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and unit testing.

Learn about key object-oriented (OO) concepts for successful migration to the Java platform.
