This course aims to show Java-knowledgeable individuals how to use the Java Swing API together with functionality from the Java API. Students will create a quick program and develop a graphical user interface application used by the students. Proper code formatting will be used and encouraged.

Main topics include: using the Texpad Editor; review of Java; various components of the Swing API; object serialization; and planning for an application.

Course instructor Javier Abud is a computer science graduate from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Abud holds a B.S.C. with a major in computer and information science, focusing on videogame programming. He is fluent in many programming languages—C, C++ and Java—and is working on creating a user interface editor using OpenGL.

This course is targeted at students, professionals or hobbyists who have some knowledge of Java and would like to extend their knowledge of Graphical User Interface creation. Creating a stand-alone graphical user interface increases user-friendliness of applications while increasing productivity.
