Learning outcomes
First part of the introductory course. Its main goal is to acquaint students with basic concepts, principles and techniques of object-oriented programing. The course uses object-first and design-patterns first techniques. This approach is supported by the use of the Java programming language and the NetBeans development environment.
Upon completion of the course the student will be able to explain the importance of key concepts and techniques used in solving problems using an object-oriented paradigm. The general concepts that we encounter when developing programs in object-oriented languages are polymorphism and inheritance. From the point of view of the techniques used to solve the problem, it will be an overview of the basic recommendations applied in the design phase of the solution. After completing the course, the student can explain the importance of design quality criteria and apply them in the solution of the semester project. By completing the course the student will deepen his knowledge of Java programming language and will be able to design and implement desktop applications with graphical user interface using the javax.swing or JavaFX library.
Explanation does not presuppose any preliminary knowledge of any programming language, it is advisable to have basic knowledge of common algorithmic structures (branching, cycles, ...).

Assessment methods and criteria
Analysis of student's work activities (technical works), Combined exam, Test, Seminar work

During the semester, students work on projects arising from the subject matter. The exam is evaluated on the basis of semester, semestral work and theoretical tests. Terms of endings: Compleeting exercise projects Semestral work Passing theoretical tests
