Objectives: The objective of the Introduction to Programming course is to teach the fundamental principles of programming. We will use an object-oriented approach and the student will learn how objects "speak" and "cooperate" to solve a problem. We will teach how to solve problems with good programs. Hence not only how to write programs but also how to design and implement effective solutions. The learning will be based on examples, from very simple ones to more complex. We will use the Java programming language.
