Dear Learning Community,
Days are getting longer, and the time is coming when we can sit outside in the sun - the Easter holidays will be here before you know it!
Maybe, you have planned a short trip somewhere, or you want to spend an enjoyable time at home. Perhaps you even have the time and leisure to do some coding exercises. The openHPI Java team has done everything to make sure that you won't get bored. If you have not yet enrolled in the course "Object-Oriented Programming in Java", take a look at the content of the first 3 weeks, which is now available. You can still join the course community.
Java workshop - Introduction to a Java IDE
We are happy to announce the next Java course to all enthusiastic participants of the introductory course "Object-Oriented Programming with Java," running at the moment, and who want to learn more. In the 2-week workshop "Introduction to a Java IDE" Ralf Teusner and Tom Staubitz are going to dive deeper into the topic and explain how to use a Java IDE (Integrated Development Environment). For working with Java, just as in any other programming language, you need certain tools, such as a compiler, an interpreter and an editor. These tools are called the Integrated Development Environment.
Having learned the basic concepts of Java in the currently running course, we would now like to teach you in the following workshop how to implement your own programs.
So: Please mark the first of May in your calendar, the date when the Java IDE workshop starts. Everyone is welcome who has at least basic programming knowledge in Java. You can enroll here.
nanou - The new iOS microlearning app
As you know, we are steadily looking for new features that support learning. At the moment we are testing a prototype for microlearning. Some of you already have installed the app which is available for iOS (iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone) and only in the German language so far. The mobile application offers short video lectures based on your personal interests. Those of you who have already visited many openHPI courses might recognize the one or the other video. The video snippets of 3-4 minutes build on one another contentwise. Every time you watch a video, other videos are made available. You can rate the videos after having watched them and thus improve the recommendations. We have compiled more than 50 videos from openHPI and other sources for you.
Here you can download the app.
We are looking forward to your feedback! You will be invited to take part in a survey directly in the app.
Besides programming, you can learn a lot of other things on openHPI, for example how search engines or mainframes work, or how you can make your home smart. Here you can find the complete course calendar.
Best regards and happy Easter,
the openHPI Team
