The unit will provide an introduction to a first programming language including basic control structures common across languages. It introduces concepts and technologies associated with platform-independent, object-oriented programming. Students will combine practical experience in using professional standard Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) such as Netbeans and Eclipse to create applications with associated theoretical concepts.
This unit will lead on to more advance programming knowledge in HIT237 and HIT337.
This unit is reliant on on-line materials. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection.
