This Java For Beginners Course Includes Java Basics And Core Java Skills Training To Make You A Software Developer Fast
If you want to learn to program in Java in far less time than you previously thought possible then read on.
The world today is a hectic place. Most of us have very little spare time. Once we have worked (or studied), slept, spent some time with friends and family there is little time left to think about a career.
In order to become a software developer you need programming skills. But how can you get those skills in the minimum amount of time and still have a life along the way?
This course was designed to teach you the essential Java programming skills you need to get your first programming job, or perhaps a promotion to a more senior position. And to do it in the shortest possible amount of time.
Here is a review written by one of the students in the course.
“Tim is such a great instructor! He just have that magic in him that makes me understand what he is teaching!” – Henrik Ferrari
Do I need to learn 100% of the Java language?
No! To understand how this course can help you, there is a need to understand how programming languages are constructed. The creators of these languages try and add every single feature they think someone might need, ever.
A large part of the language rarely gets used, and sometimes not at all. It’s the same with software. If you have used a spreadsheet in the past, I’d lay odds that you use it for basic spreadsheet work, and you rarely, if ever go into some of the advanced functionality. The basic functions of the spreadsheet are what most people use.
Imagine if you had to learn every feature of the spreadsheet program? How long would it take, and would most of that information be useful to you? Especially if you were learning it to get a job and that job only required basic spreadsheet skills.
Switching back to programming, if your goal is to get your first programming job, then why not only learn what you need to achieve that goal. And worry about the other stuff when and if you need it.
That’s what this course is all about – giving you the skills you need quickly without any fluff or useless information.
The course is aimed at complete beginners.
We assume you have never programmed before in this course and start from scratch and show you step by step how to download and install the tools, through to writing your first programs, and from there we move to more and more of parts of the Java language that you need to understand.
If you are already a programmer, you will still find value in this course – It’s very common for programmers to want to learn a second or third programming language, and doing so makes you more valuable and opens up career opportunities.
As this is a crash course you can get skilled in Java, fast.
Here is what a student said about another of the instructors courses.
“This course is AMAZING!!!! The teaching is thorough with lots of helpful exercises in various formats! The TA responded very quickly to my question! Thank you!” – Joy Hope
What version of Java will I learn?
All videos in the course have been recorded using the very latest version. Java 11. It’s recommended that you follow along with that version, but if you have an older version most of the course should work just fine.
Java 11 is the version you will want to learn because Oracle have designated it as the LTS version of Java – meaning they will support it for many years to come. The reason they do this is so large companies can have a particular version of Java employed on the clients sites for years without worrying about new versions of Java crashing previously working programs.
Java 11 will get updated regularly over this time, but it will remain version 11. Oracle also have new Java versions coming out six monthly, but as soon as a new version is released, the previous version is no longer supported.
As such you should learn Java 11 which gives you the most useful skills for your future employer.
I heard that you have to pay to use Java 11.
It’s true that Oracle charging businesses to use Java 11, but students and professional developers alike never need to pay for Java. It’s 100% free. And even if that ever became a problem in the future, there is the free OpenJDK version of Java that has no restrictions.
The bottom line is that you do not need to pay anything to legally use Java 11.
What will you learn in the course?
You’ll learn the essential Java skills needed to become employable as a Java developer.
- Creating a Java basic program
- All about the Java compiler
- Data Types, Variables, Conditional Processing, Loops, Classes, Operators, Expressions – all the good stuff.
- Check out the curriculum on this page for a list of what is covered in the course.
In the course you will work with a lot of Java example code. You will start with Java code that was badly written. You’ll see why it’s bad, and then as you progress through the course, you will improve it and make the code bug free.
This approach, along with smaller snippers of code will help you become a programmer as well as think as a programmer. And as a result you will learn how to get the most out of Java.
What you’ll learn
- Learn the core Java skills needed to apply for Java developer positions in just 10 hours.
- Have a fundamental understanding of the Java programming language.
- Understand how to create your own Java programs.
- Have the skills and understanding of Java to confidently apply for Java programming jobs.
- Hold sufficient Java skills to move onto Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) technology such as the Spring Framework to build enterprise software.
- Possess java skills to move into Android app development.
- Be able to demonstrate industry best practices in the Java code you write as taught by instructors with 18 years experience and who are Oracle Java certified.
- Obtain a solid understanding of what debugging and refactoring is and how to do it.
