Having used many different programming languages in my life I found Java the most basic and rewarding. Therefore it is the ideal choice for any beginner programmer ready to join the growing computer industry. This course contains the valuable core fundamentals you will need to know before becoming an advanced programmer, teaching you the simplest of basics and touching upon more advanced concepts.
The course will require the use of the NetBeans IDE which is explained in a video and a tutorial on how to download the program. The program is free. NetBeans was chosen because it offered a clean and useful IDE for programming. These two factors are essential for easy learning when it comes to learning a new programming language.
Java is an excellent programming language and you will find by learning Java other languages are very similar and your experience with Java will help you learn more than one language if the need be. Java is easy to learn and abundantly useful for any programmer, which is why I chose to teach it in this course.
The course will be a challenge for students with no interest in the subject, but little interest is all you need to get started. Having the right attitude when programming can affect how you program, so approach it with confidence and a clear head and nothing can go wrong.

I started studying programming when I began High school. It became a passion that hasn't vanished since I left school. I've been studying the more advanced mechanics of programming just over seven years. I first started using Python, moved to C#, then Java and finally C++. Over the years I became proficient in all these languages and created many successful programs using them.
