Java: Object-Oriented Programming
Object-oriented programming is a common style of programming where you design your code to function like objects in the real world. In Java, understanding the basics of object-oriented programming is especially important because every piece of Java code that you write interacts with objects and classes.
In this course, you’ll learn the foundations of object-oriented programming, write your own classes, create your own objects, and finally dive into some of the most common built-in Java classes.

A Basic Calculator
It's time to build fluency in Object Oriented Java. In this next Pro Project, we're going to practice Classes, Methods, Objects in Java so you can hone your skills and feel confident taking them to the real world. Why? It's vital that you get comfortable creating classes and writing methods that perform various operations. What's next? Arithmetic operations, divisibility rules, Java methods. You got this!
Build A Droid
Practice object-oriented Java by creating a `Droid` class and creating different instances of Droid. Droids are robots built to perform tasks. A droid can be built for any task so it's the perfect candidate for a Java class!
