We programmed. Taught by Jam and Mike. Some TiPsters who have been to Duke East in the years when a camper can take the JAVA course regard it as one of the toughest courses that TIP offers. Many campers enter the class with no JAVA experience and leave hoping to never touch JAVA code again. The 2005 Term II JAVA class became known for lot of inside jokes and quotes.

  • The final project: The culmination of about 2 weeks learning. Campers are to create a game using their gained knowledge of programming.
