The course Programming I is about fundamentals of programming for first-year students and covers fundamental concepts of programming. JAVA is used as a teaching language. Nevertheless, the principles apply to every (imperative or class-based object-oriented) programming language. The course is given for Computer Science students at the L├╝beck University of Applied Sciences, and covers the following aspects:

  • Fundamental concepts of programming including computational thinking, programming paradigms and runtime models
  • Variables, data types, operators and expressions
  • Control flow and routines (functions, procedures, methods)
  • Reference data types and collections
  • (Stream based) I/O programming and serialization of objects
  • Recursive programming and recursive datastructures
  • Functional programming using lambda functions
  • Exception handling
  • Introduction to object oriented programming and UML introducing fundamental concepts like abstraction, encapsulation, and polymorphism
