The Institute for Professional Development

​​Java Developer

DePaul University's Java Developer Program is designed to provide programmers with an intensive and comprehensive introduction to component software development using the Java language. The program focuses on Java as a general purpose, cross-platform applications language. It also covers ancillary interfaces for the development of distributed systems and graphical user interfaces.

The Java Developer Program is intended for individuals with a solid programming background, but no knowledge of Java is assumed. Participants are expected to do a considerable amount of work outside of class. Instructors will be available in person and through electronic mail.
