New features in Java 17
"Unleash the Power of Java 17: Sealed Classes, Pattern Matching, and Record Patterns!
Are you eager to dive into the cutting-edge features of Java? Look no further! This course is your gateway to the latest advancements in the Java programming language, with a special focus on Java 17's game-changing additions: sealed classes, pattern matching, and record patterns.
Sealed classes redefine class inheritance, allowing you to finely control which classes can extend from a specific base. This invaluable feature is a game-changer in framework design, giving you unparalleled control over class hierarchies, ensuring robust and secure software architecture.
Throughout this course, you'll learn the ins and outs of creating sealed classes, and defining their permitted subclasses. Discover how sealed classes revolutionize software development, delivering heightened security, maintainability, and extensibility.
Next up, we'll unravel the magic of 'instanceof' Pattern Matching. A recent powerhouse addition to Java, now further refined in Java 17, this feature simplifies code and enhances readability by seamlessly combining the 'instanceof' operator with patterns.
Learn the art of utilizing 'instanceof' patterns to streamline your code, boosting both efficiency and clarity. Dive deep into various pattern types, from type patterns to variable patterns and alternative patterns, and witness your code transform into a masterpiece of elegance and efficiency.
But that's not all! Say hello to Record Patterns, a revolutionary feature introduced in Java 17. They allow you to define records for data storage in a more compact and efficient manner than conventional Java classes.
Unearth the secrets of creating record patterns and leveraging them to store data in a more concise and readable format. Discover how record patterns elevate your software's performance, and explore their edge over traditional Java classes.
By the end of this course, you'll possess a comprehensive grasp of the latest Java 17 features, from sealed classes to instanceof pattern matching and record patterns. Put your newfound knowledge to work in real-world scenarios, enhancing the quality and efficiency of your software projects. Whether you're a seasoned Java developer or just starting out, this course is your ticket to staying at the forefront of this dynamic programming language.

My professional career started ten years ago when I graduated from the university of Ghent (Belgium) with a masters degree in computer science. During my eduction I've always had a strong focus on software development.
Thus I started working as a technical consultant and gained experience as a software engineer in several large scale applications. My technical expertise was greatly appreciated. Part of my job description became guiding and training others where needed.
After a set of successful projects, I've received the opportunity to become a solution architect. With this change I've become more focused on how systems work together to fulfil a set of functionality instead of designing for one system in particular.
Teaching and supporting others in doing their job has always been a big part of my life. Therefore I possess the necessary skills to help others learn and focus on what's important.
