Programming

We currently provide a class in Introduction to Programming. The language we teach is Java. Java is the language that the popular game Minecraft is written in and is the language that all Android Apps are written. Java is one of the most difficult languages to learn but once learned makes all other programming languages easy. Java is also the language that has the most job openings. Knowing Java will give your child the ability to make $40,000 after graduating from high school.  

Students will learn about Variables, Conditions, Loops, Operators, and the Java Syntax. Students will also learn the very basics of game programming and Android Development. Students who pass the fundamentals course will then be able to take the Introduction to Game Programming planned for Fall 2014. This class is taught by Sean Worthington, who also teaches Java at Butte College.
