Java SE: Programming I

This entry-level course is aimed at programmers who are new to Java and who need to learn its concepts, language constructs, and data types. Included in the agenda are topics on exception handling, lambda expressions, and modular programming.

The course is designed for programmers who will apply these language skills to develop programs using the latest major versions of the JDK, currently Java 11. Students practice the skills learned in each lesson through hands-on labs.
