Free 4-Hr Java Training, April 9, 2011

Join IEEE Baltimore on Saturday April 9, 2011, 10 am-2 pm at the National Electronics Museum, as internationally known Java expert Marty Hall gives a super-compressed crash course on Java programming.

  Java Programming: A Crash Course in the Basics

Course Description:

Java is the world's most popular and widely-applied programming language, but it is large, complex, and sometimes difficult to get started with. This FREE, four-hour, fast-moving mini-course first gives an overview of Java and its application areas, then covers specific details of the most basic syntax and most important programming strategy: object-oriented programming.

BONUS: if you have a Windows laptop with a USB port, come 45 minutes early or stay late, and Marty will walk you through installing Java 6, Eclipse (a Java editor and development environment), sample code, Java programming exercises, and exercise solutions.


The course is aimed at engineers, scientists, and others that have experience in *some* high-level programming language; it will move too quickly for first-time programmers. No previous Java experience is expected.
