Learn how to write efficient code and create software programs and functions using object-oriented programming in Java in this hands-on introductory software development program.

The courses in this Professional Certificate program introduce you to the “science” of computer science. In biology, DNA forms the basic building blocks of life. DNA strands can be replicated and built upon each other to form complex objects called proteins that can make all sorts of interesting creatures from bacteria to elephants. Similarly, software code can be built in such a way so that it can be reused and paired with other software to create complex software systems.

In this Professional Certificate program, you will have the opportunity to explore the nuts and bolts of reusable code objects (called “object-oriented” programming). You’ll get exposed to professional software tools and learn how to compile software programs (and why that’s important). You’ll also learn about basic algorithms that programmers use to create everything from simple automation programs to complex systems that run factories. A program like this wouldn’t be complete without learning how to quickly manipulate data using software so you’ll learn about hash tables, stacks, and trees as efficient and speedy ways to manage information....
