Who is this class for: No prior Java programming experience is necessary; however, before taking this course, you should have a basic understanding of the programming concepts (variables, functions, conditionals, and for loops) that you can learn in the first course of this specialization, “Programming Foundations with JavaScript, HTML and CSS,” or in another introductory programming course. In addition, this course relies heavily on a seven-step approach to writing programs, also taught in “Programming Foundations with JavaScript, HTML and CSS.” This is the second course of the Java Programming and Software Engineering Fundamentals Specialization, and provides the fundamentals of Java programming you will need to successfully complete the course series and the capstone project.

They make programming look so easy! Enjoyed the course! Thank you!

I really enjoyed the coursework for this class. In particular, I loved how challenging some of the assignments were. However, I do hate that I cannot submit final quiz answers without paying for the course. I also did not like how little help there seemed to be offered to some individuals on the forum regarding issues they were facing with their code (specifically with the GeneFinder project).

I took three of the courses from Michigan on working with Python and they were completely open to complete without payment (which means you opt not to get a verified certificate). I wish that this course, and the specialization that it is part of, fell into the same category.

great!
