About This Course

Headphones playing music, sunglasses on, hat down. You’re looking at two kings in your hand, and in the center of the table, there are two aces, a queen, and a jack. You might be thinking about going all in. But why might the other player be thinking the same thing? Java coding can help you to intuit, explore, and expand your knowledge of statistics, probability, and even the likelihood of you winning at cards! As you use Java to build card games, shuffle decks of cards, deal to players, and try to beat the computer, you’ll also strengthen your own understanding of what events are likely, and how you can look at things from someone else’s perspective.
