Absolute beginners welcome! Did you know that programming has one of the highest dropout rates of all undergraduate majors? When approached in the wrong way, learning Java can be an incredibly frustrating process. In this guided project, we’ll draw upon 40 years of research into the best ways to introduce new programming concepts in an enjoyable but rapid manner. Many courses with titles like "Java for Beginners" really mean “Java for people who know other programming languages but are beginners at Java." This guided project will include introductory programming activities that have been extensively researched to provide you the best possible foundation for learning to program using Java.
