The book teaches Java to someone with absolutely no programming background. It focuses on core programming topics such as variables, looping, subroutines, and program layout. This course focuses on real programming techniques, and not using an IDE.

This book is less about Java, and it is only partly about programming. It is about a way of thinking. Computer scientists have an approach to problem-solving, and a way of crafting solutions, that is unique, versatile and powerful.
The book serves as a comprehensive guide, complete with a series of tutorials to help users better understand the many ways one can program in Java. It is meant to be both an introductory guide and a reference on Java and related technologies.
