Prerequisites: or G51PRG 2009/10.
Summary of Content: This module will introduce the components of graphical user interfaces, focusing on how to implement them. The concept of Model-View-Controller will be introduced. The programming language used to implement user interfaces will be JavaFX. Other APIs and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) will also be introduced, which makes the construction of graphical user interfaces easier.
