CS163: Java (CS1) No Prior Programming
Computer programming in Java for students without previous programming experience. Topics include variables, assignment, expressions, operators, booleans, conditionals, characters and strings, control loops, arrays, objects and classes, file input/output, interfaces, recursion, lists, and sorting.
CS164: Java (CS1) Prior Programming
Computer programming in Java for students with previous programming experience, not necessarily in Java. Topics include variables, assignment, expressions, operators, booleans, conditionals, characters and strings, control loops, arrays, objects and classes, file input/output, interfaces, recursion, lists, and sorting.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Read and (mentally) parse straightforward Java code, and predict the flow of control and program output.
- Design, build, and verify Java programs of moderate size with several classes, as measured by the ability to write Java programs with 200-‐300 lines of code.
- Test and debug Java programs, including code written by themselves or by others.
- Use the Linux operating system and Eclipse development tool to achieve the previous goals.
- Comprehend the basics of object-‐oriented computer programming in the context of the Java language.
- Decompose and solve programming problems; implement basic algorithms for searching and sorting.
