Java is an object-oriented software programming language and computing platform that drives the core functions of many technologies today, such as Android, Minecraft, and web/desktop applications development. In this camp, students will learn - to set up a development environment - to design and organize code in an object-oriented manner.
We will introduce basic concepts of objects, classes, scope, error handling, input/output, file reading/writing, packages and more. We will use the Eclipse IDE.
