Course content

This course is a continuation of IN1000 – Introduction to Object-oriented Programming and goes deeper into object-oriented programming; the working language is java, and it´ll be given an introduction to it. The course also touch upon some useful data-structures and algorithms.

Learning outcome

After taking IN1010, you´ll:

  • have a good overview of the Java programming language and you can use it to solve real-life problems of moderate size
  • master advanced object-oriented mechanism such as sub-classes, polymorphism and interface
  • have overview of some basic data structures (especially linked lists) and you can program the most important operations on them
  • be able to develop robust and reliable programs with good object-oriented design and you can find alternative solutions for a given problem and evaluate the pros and cons of the different solutions
  • have knowledge of parallel programs with threads and you can use this in simple applications
  • know of event management and can write simple applications that handle events
