Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ be proficient in the basic language elements (data types, expressions, control structures) of Java.
_ have grasped the concepts of object orientation (classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism) and be able to implement them.
_ be able to apply the concept of exception handling in programs that they have developed themselves.
_ be able to use basic classes of the Java API (for example, strings, input/output, exception classes).
_ be able to develop algorithms for simple problems in small teams and implement them in a well-structured manner.
