In this computer science course, you will learn the basics of programming in the Java language, and cover topics relevant to the AP Computer Science A course and exam. This course includes a broad view of computer operation, the global impact of computing, and then introduces Java programming concepts including variables, selection and object-oriented design. This course is for anyone interested in taking a first-level computer-programming course, particularly those who attend a school that does not provide a similar class. No previous programming knowledge is needed. We are looking forward to helping you explore this exciting new world!
