WEEKS 1-6

Learn Java from scratch!
We begin by developing a solid understanding of Core Java using computational thinking (Abstraction, Analysis, and Automation) with Object Oriented Programming Foundations. This project-based program helps students reason and navigate through coding complexities using tools, including Eclipse IDE, to understand the language’s fundamentals, application, and utility.

WEEK 6: After establishing their foundational skills, students are assessed on their Java skills to determine eligibility to move into the second part of the class. Students that pass this assessment transition to weeks 7 – 18 to advance their coding skills for creating applications and programs.

WEEKS 7 – 18

Apply what you know!
Now we move on to the intermediate-level curriculum, which covers methodologies to plan, analyze, design, implement, and evaluate existing systems as well as create new ones (SDLC). Learn how to be efficient in Agile-Scrum project methodologies using Jira, one of the most influential software tools on the market. Additionally, learn how to manage data using SQL by installing, configuring, and connecting queries with related software.

Students enhance their fundamentals and excel at understanding program flow. Topics including multithreading, collections, basic I/O, Concurrency, JDBC, Java networking, and Java 8 are covered. Students are also introduced to Spring MVC, SonarQube, and Maven technologies among many more to ensure they know how to wire, create, manage, test, and inspect Java programs and projects to produce quality applications.
