INTERNET RELATED COURSES




INTRODUCTION TO PERL SCRIPTING - 3 days

This introductory level course presents the basic concepts and capabilities of the Perl program scripting language. More than 130 complete programs are used to illustrate how to use Perl to perform various data processing and system administration tasks.


ADVANCED TOPICS IN PERL SCRIPTING - 2 days

This intermediate/advanced level course presents the Perl capabilities and notations used in working with complex data structures, modules and objects. More than 60 complete programs illustrate how to use these features.


JAVA PROGRAMMING FOR COBOL PROGRAMMERS - 5 days

This course provides experienced COBOL programmers with the ability to utilize the structure and syntax of the object oriented Java programming language for both general business and Internet programming applications. The student is prepared to code, test, and execute Java programs making use of the facilities provided by the language. Because procedural programming uses a different paradigm than object oriented programming, this course concentrates on the application of basic object oriented concepts. The course can be taught using any development environment including WSAD, RAD and Eclipse. Previous knowledge of a procedural programming language such as COBOL is required.


JAVA PROGRAMMING - 5 days

This course provides experienced programmers with the ability to utilize the structure and syntax of the object oriented Java programming language for both general business and Internet programming applications. The student is prepared to code, test, and execute stand-alone Java programs and applets making use of the facilities provided by the language. Previous knowledge of the C or C++ programming languages are not required but would be helpful and would allow the course to be presented in a shortened time frame.


EFFECTIVELY USING JAVA PACKAGES AND FEATURES - 5 days

This intermediate to advanced level course is intended for programmers who already have a fundamental understanding of Java programming and some experience writing code. It provides additional insights and details regarding some of the more advanced and useful capabilities contained in the Java Programming Language and it's associated packages. Topics include reflection and JavaBeans, Java type safety enhancements, the Java Collections Framework, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), multithreading, inner classes, lambda expressions, and networking. For the most part, this course is independent of the Java development environment that is being used. Although the only requirement is access to the Java Development Kit, the course is best taught using a more formal Integrated Development Environment (IDE) such as Eclipse or RAD.
