Course Description

Most modern programming languages today are object-oriented and learning the concepts associated with this paradigm will greatly improve the quality and speed at which you can create robust applications. In this course, you will learn the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming, including encapsulation, inheritance, base and derived classes, abstract and sealed classes, casting between types, and interfaces. In addition, you will also learn the JavaScript fundamentals needed for creating web applications, including the basic rules of JavaScript, JavaScript functions, and referencing and modifying HTML elements. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft certification exam Software Development Fundamentals (Exam 98-361), part of the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification track.
