Abstract classes and methods
Handled and unhandled exceptions
This computer science course covers advanced OOP strategies, including polymorphism, abstract classes, super keyword, exceptions, generics, sorting and searching algorithms.
This course is for anyone interested in taking a first-level computer-programming course, particularly those who attend a school that does not provide a similar class.
We are looking forward to helping you explore this exciting new world!
