The Java for Non-Programmers training course provides new programmers with the training they need to successfully learn how to program using Java as the programming language. The course begins with a high-level overview of the software development process, then transitions into a discussion about object-oriented programming. With the foundation laid, the course teaches students the syntax and fundamentals required to create basic Java programs.
