CSS department offers "Java in 5 Minutes"

The Computer Science Socialism department at ECBerkeley is happy to offer "Java in 5 Minutes" in downtown Berkeley, July 15, 2011.  This free, 2 hour class will focus first on turning participants into Java programmers, then spending the remaining hour and 55 minutes exercising this awesome power in hands-on manipulation of screen objects such as buttons and windows, colors, text, and some mathematical 3D graphing. (For those with the stamina and interest, we'll keep going until 5pm.) We'll use the Beanshell interpreter, which allows you immediately to start programming and see visual results. Please contact the instructor for instructions on setting up your laptop prior to the class. [Read more...]
