Do you want to learn more about PHP to enhance your Wordpress skills?  Have you ever thought about trying mobile development but don’t know where to start?  Do you want to learn more advanced aspects of Javascript? Object-oriented programming skills are central to all of these! Many of the widely used languages have a strong object-oriented component, including Java, Ruby, PHP, and even JavaScript. Object-oriented skills are crucial for taking your programming skills to the next level. 

In this class, first we will be learning the basics of Java.  Then we will use our skills to learn about classes, objects, polymorphism, inheritance, and encapsulation.  This is a great class for beginners, or people with front-end development experience, and would like to learn more about back-end programming. 

This workshop will be taught by Talia Selitsky.
