edX: AP Computer Science A: Java Programming Polymorphism and Advanced Data Structures

 with  Sunil Prabhakar, Debbie Perouli and Phil Sands

This computer science course covers advanced OOP strategies, including polymorphism, abstract classes, super keyword, exceptions, generics, sorting and searching algorithms.

This course is for anyone interested in taking a first-level computer-programming course, particularly those who attend a school that does not provide a similar class.

We are looking forward to helping you explore this exciting new world!
