INFO.2250 Survey of Programming Languages
INFO.2670 C Programming
Introduces students to the techniques of
programming in C. The language syntax, semantics,
its applications, and the portable library are
covered. This course is not an introductory course
in programming. However, it will teach some of the
basics in the first few weeks. Students should
have a working knowledge of at least one high-
level programming language. 3 credits.
Special Notes: Students may not receive credit for both the INFO.2110/INFO.2120 sequence and INFO.2670
This course qualifies for
free MSDNA software!
INFO.2970 Introduction to Java Programming
This course introduces students to object oriented programming with Java(TM). Basic concepts are introduced early, with a strong focus on classes. Additional topics include event driven (Windows) programming and object-oriented design. Note that this is not an introductory course to programming - Students are expected to have a working knowledge of a least one high-level programming and/or scripting language (or equivalent experience) and basic familiarity with programming (using a text editor, etc). However, it will teach some basic programming concepts during the first few weeks. Previous programming experience required. Requires the Sun Java(TM) Development Kit. 3 credits.
INFO.3010 JAVA Programming
The JAVA (TM) programming language is now being used to write distributed Internet applications. Unlike traditional languages, the JAVA (TM) language was designed to be used on a network. Thus, it contains features needed to build efficient distributed applications that employ Internet resources. Those who intend to design World Wide Web information systems that fully utilize the Internet must have a working knowledge of this vital technology. This course allows students to explore features that set JAVA (TM) apart from traditional programming languages; obtain an overview of object-oriented design as it applies to JAVA (TM); learn about the fundamental constructs of the JAVA (TM) programming language; and write, compile, and include simple JAVA (TM) Applets within the content of HTML documents. 3 credits.
INFO.3030 Advanced Java Programming
This course description is to be used for the on-campus course only. For online course description, see the Online site. This course assumes knowledge of the Java programming language, including exceptions, interfaces, and inner classes. It also assumes knowledge of the Java 1.1 event model and AWT. Topics covered include: Advanced AWT, Swing (both the lightweight AWT replacement components and the advanced components, such as Tables and Trees), streams, multithreading, network programming, database connectivity (JDBC), remote objects (RMI), JavaBeans, security, internationalization, and native methods. 3 credits.
INFO.3040 Introduction to Java Web Development
This course will introduce Java/Java Script,
Java Server Face (JSF), Java Serverlet Page
(JSP) Web development. Students will utilize a
Windows-based development platform configured
with Java JDK, JBoss Application Server and
Eclipse IDE. Fundamentals of Java and object-
oriented programming using the Model View
Controller (MVC) web application and
application server architectures, Enterprise
and XML (AJAX) programming technologies will be
examined. Students will also learn core skills
in personalizing websites using sessions,
leveraging reusable components, use of JSP tags
and development of embedded Java/Java script
code into HTML to build interactive web pages. 3 credits.
Prerequisite: INFO.2970 Intro to Java Programming
INFO.3050 Survey of Perl/Python/PHP
The goal of this course is to provide an in-depth introduction to the Python programming language followed by an introduction to both the Perl and PHP. All of these languages share common functionality and are tools commonly used to solve similar problems, But each embodies a different philosophy and approach to solving those problems. After a thorough grounding in the languages basics, we'll explore their similarities, and, more importantly, their differences. By the end of the course, its' hoped, you'll have a good idea which of these tools is right for you and the kind of applications you wish to develop with them. 3 credits.
