Java Fundamentals for Android™

Since the Android software development kit (Android SDK) is built in Java programming language, this mini- course is made up of three lessons on the fundamentals of Java programming. The course will teach you the basics of Java programming language and object oriented programming (OOP) concepts required for the development of Android applications.

Developing applications for Android™ systems requires basic knowledge of Java programming language. This 12-hours introductory course focuses on the fundamentals of Java programming language, its framework, syntax, and paradigm.

The course will focus on object-oriented programming and techniques which are mainly used in Android software development kit (SDK). It will provide the basic tools and skills to ensure a smooth start with Android application development.

This is a crucial course for any non-Java programmer planning to learn the development of Android applications.


Upon completing the course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • The fundamentals of Java Virtual Machine
  • Writing, compiling, and running basic Java applications
  • Using the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE)
  • Java basic syntax and control statements
  • Java object oriented programming’s basic concepts: classes, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism… etc
  • Java collections, file input/output, serialization, try/catch/finally …etc
