While you may have heard of Python scripting in AnyLogic, Java is the original, and currently the only fully-supported, scripting language. Knowing a little Java can really level up your simulation modeling in AnyLogic. The course introduced here is a new way to gain that knowledge.
Adapted from a post originally appearing on The AnyLogic Modeler.
The Java for AnyLogic course is for beginner to intermediate AnyLogic users who want to learn how to use the Java programming language and Object-Oriented Programming principles to more quickly make better and more efficient models.

The course is structured from simple topics, like variables in Java, to more complex ideas, such as Class Inheritance. You will start by learning the basics of Java and then move on to more complex features, like data structures, and finish by learning and implementing complex concepts, such as Inheritance, polymorphism, and other Java features that extend AnyLogic's capabilities.
