Java Programming: The Basics

Sunday, May 18, 2014, 2 p.m.

KCDC logoComputers touch nearly every facet of our daily lives. In this class, we will learn more about how computers work by writing our own simple software programs.

This class makes programming understandable and available to anyone, regardless of background. We will create and run basic programs in Java, a language used in classrooms and large corporations. We will become familiar with basic Java syntax, and learn how computers store and process information with variables and conditionals.

Expect a mix of demonstrations and hands-on work on the computer. Bring a laptop if you can.

Instructor Joe Kaperst is a student taking high-level Java classes. He started one of the first Coder Dojos in the D.C. area so that he could share his knowledge of programming with the ever-growing number of people who want to learn about the field.
