Learn the basic concepts, tools, and functions that you will need to build fully functional programs with the popular programming language, Java.
Build a strong foundation in Java and object-oriented programming with this tutorial for beginners.
A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips
Learning the fundamentals of Java puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Java is free, easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the base for all object-oriented programming languages.
Jobs in java development are plentiful, and being able to learn Java will give you a strong background to more easily pick up other object-oriented languages such as C++, C#, Ruby, and Pascal.
Content and Overview
Suitable for beginning programmers, through this course of 115 lectures and 10 hours of content, you’ll learn all of the Java fundamentals and establish a strong understanding of the concept behind object-oriented programming (OOP). Each chapter closes with exercises, putting your new learned skills into practical use immediately.
Starting with the installation of the Java Development Kit, this course will take you through Java variable types, operators, and how to use them. By creating classes and objects, you’ll a establish a strong understanding of OOP.
With these basics mastered, the course will take you through program flow control by teaching you how to use for loops, while loops, and conditional if-else statements to add complexity and functionality to your programs.
Students completing the course will have the knowledge to create functional and useful Java programs.
Complete with working files and code samples, you’ll be able to work alongside the author as you work through each concept, and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course.
I am concurrently taking 3 online Java classes (both paid and unpaid) and various youtube videos as I prepare for teaching a computer science AP class. This is by far the best lecturing I have found. The explanations are clear and the examples are excellent. I would supplement it with other places that can provide better assignments with right/wrong feedback, because you will only learn to program if you practice it - a lot. For a beginner I would also suggest getting started with BlueJ, Netbeans or Eclipse IDE rather than all the cmd line confusion.
Extremely well written class
This is a thorough beginner's course. The Instructor walks you through, step by step, from installation through all of the basic Java language elements, e.g., expressions and statements. It's all done with actual screen examples, as you go - Show, not Tell. "Thorough," however, also implies long. This isn't How to Learn X in 20 Minutes or an Hour. The course covers a lot of material and it can be a bit of a slog, at times. With that caveat, though, you're exposed to as much of the basic language, and a handful of libraries, as you will need to get started programming in Java. This will, for example, prepare you to take a basic Algorithms course using Java. One of the best courses I've seen on Udemy. If you're new to programming and want to learn Java, I recommend this course.
most particularly the subtitles.. pointless if you just hum and listen to it.. like all coding lessons you've got to code..
Thank you for a very good introduction in Java programming!
