This final course is an opportunity to go back over everything that you’ve learned and add some final functions to your skillset. This includes defining object-oriented programming in relation to Java, as well as describing the use of methods, strings, inheritance, and more.

This course would appeal to individuals looking to start a career as a developer, including:

  • Career starters or career changers looking for an entry level role as a developer.
  • Established technology professionals looking to better understand software development.
  • Entrepreneurs with an idea for a new product or service who need to understand at a high level how this could be translated into a finished digital good or service.
  • Project, product or general managers, looking to gain hands-on experience developer activities.

During the course we’ll be using Python, Jupyter Notebook and Java. We recommend you use a computer to access this course.
