    Course Description

    • Prerequisites: Basic understanding of Java
    • Taught by a Stanford-educated, ex-Googler, husband-wife team
    • Please don’t take this class if you have already signed up for our From 0 to 1: Learn Java Programming course (that includes a far longer and more in-depth version of this material)

    This is a quick and handy course with exactly what you need to know (nothing more, nothing less!) about Object-Oriented programming in Java

    Let’s parse that.

    • The course is quick and handy: It explains object-oriented programming in Java in just the right level of detail for you to put these to work today.
    • The course has exactly what you need – nothing more, nothing less. It starts from zero, builds up the design, then gives plenty of real-world examples, but crisply and quickly.
    • The course is also quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition, zooming out so we remember the big picture, active learning with plenty of quizzes. There’s also a peppy soundtrack, and art – all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall.

    What’s covered:

    • The Object-Oriented Paradigm: Classes, Objects, Interfaces, Inheritance; how an OO mindset differs from a functional or imperative programming mindset;
    • Mechanics: the mechanics of OO – access modifiers, dynamic dispatch, abstract base classes v interfaces.
    • Principles: The underlying principles of OO: encapsulation, abstraction, polymorphism
    • Interfaces, abstract base classes and interface default methods
    • Packages and Jars: The plumbing is important to understand too.
    • Language Features: Serialisation; why the Cloneable interface sucks; exception handling; the immutability of Strings;
    • Types: the Object base class; the instanceof operator, primitive and object reference types; pass-by-value and pass-by-object-reference.

    What are the requirements for taking this course?

    • No pre-requisites, this class starts from basics 🙂

    What are you going to get from this course?

    • Over 37 lectures and 7 hours of content!
    • Understand Object-Oriented programming concepts at the level where you can have intelligent design conversations with an experienced software engineer
    • Understand the nuances of Java specific constructs in serialisation, exception-handling, cloning, the immutability of strings, primitive and object reference types
    • Understand class and interface design
    • Define, implement and instantiate objects
    • Create class hierarchies using inheritance
    • Apply and benefit from encapsulation, runtime polymorphism and interface-driven programming

    Who is this course for?

    • Yep! Folks that are new to (or somewhat intimidated by) Object Oriented Programming
    • Yep! Experienced C programmers looking to make the leap from procedural/imperative to object-oriented programming
