This course will teach you how to program in the Java Programming Language, focusing on Java concepts that you will need in order to develop Android apps.
Many of the topics include on-line labs with a novel automated tutor that has been university course tested and shown to significantly improve student learning. All of the exercises can be completed on the web, so you don't have to do any installations. The Eclipse IDE is introduced so if you prefer, you can install the professional tools you will need for Java and Android development.
Automated testing with JUnit is included along the way, with a special emphasis on test-driven development.
This course introduces Android briefly through three simple Android apps and lab exercises, and it is designed to get you ready to take a professional Android course.
