Learn Object-Oriented ProgrammingStart Free Course
In this introductory programming class, you’ll learn Object-Oriented Programming, a must-have technique for software engineers that will allow you to reuse and share code easily. You’ll learn by doing, and will build byte-sized (ha!) mini projects in each lesson to learn and practice programming concepts.
We’ve heard that programming can be intimidating for newcomers, and we’ve created this course to make sure that you have a great learning experience! You’ll learn actively with our mini projects (see the awesome list below), which you’ll be able to share proudly with your friends. You’ll also learn important programming concepts one by one, with no surprises or leaps of logic along the way.
You’ll pick up some great tools for your programming toolkit in this course! You will:
This introductory course is for you if you want to be a software engineer, or if you want to collaborate with programmers. Mastering Object-Oriented Programming will propel your career in tech forward, and it’s also a great way to learn how software engineers think about solving problems.
This course is also a part of our Full Stack Web Developer Nanodegree.
This free course is your first step towards a new career with the Full Stack Web Developer Nanodegree Program.
Enhance your skill set and boost your hirability through innovative, independent learning.
We require some familiarity with the following programming ideas in any computer language (C++, Java, Python, English etc.):
Don’t worry if you feel you need a refresher on any of these programming ideas. That’s ok. We will provide information that will remind you how to use these ideas when building programs.
See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
You should take this course if you want to build awesome projects, while writing only a few lines of code. Here are some of them:
While building these projects we will learn about a programming technique that is used by software engineers on a daily basis; it is called Object-Oriented Programming.
Finally, we will work together to get better at reading help documents and using other people’s code almost like lego blocks to build our programs. By building these projects, you’ll become more confident in your ability to code and transition from “programming looks like magic” to “oh, I can do that.”
