Learn to program in the Java programming language. This course assumes no prior programming knowledge, just a desire to learn to program. 

We first begin the course with the steps involved in setting up the development environment. Once the environment is set up we start by writing simple Java code. Then we gradually move along to understand what are variables in Java and we also learn how to accept the user input in Java.

Moving along, we learn what are loops arrays and classes in Java. We understand why the concept of class in used in Java. We also learn the significance and working of different types of loops such as the for loop and the while loop. After that we learn the concepts of arrays and strings in Java. We learn what are arrays and how arrays can be used to store data while writing java programs.

Moving along we learn the most important concept in Java, i.e the object oriented programming.In this we learn what are objects, classes and methods. We also learn about inheritance, encapsulation and polymorphism.
