"Very easy to understand"

I have been a software developer for a several years and I have been passionate about teaching for a long time. For example, in university I was helping my fellow friends with their homework's and assignments. I became Java SE 7 Certified Associate (OCA) in 2012 and ever since I have been passionate about Java. "Write Once, Use Anywhere" is probably one of the most important features of Java. 

This is an introduction to Java programming course that consist of over 2 hours of video lectures, 32 quizzes and 8 coding exercises. You do not need any programming experience. I will walk you step by step toward the projects. Starting by installing the required software JDK and Eclipse. Then we will go through Creating Projects, Classes and Packages. Next we will cover the programming logic and the syntax of Java. After each chapter there is a quick quiz to refresh your knowledge and there is an optional practical coding exercise to test if you are ready to continue to the next chapter.

 We are going to cover: 

  • Basic programming
  • If and switch statements
  • For and While Loops
  • Methods
  • Single and Multidimensional Arrays
  • Objects
  • Text Input/Outpu
  • Inheritance and Polymorphism
  • Abstract classes and Interfaces
  • Exceptions

Who this course is for:

  • People who want to learn how build java programs
  • People with somewhat experience that want to refresh their knowledge.

Hi, my name is Kiril Anastasov and I have been a programmer for over 8 years, creating Web, Desktop, and Mobile applications.

I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate), and have a lot of experience with Java, Spring Boot, Maven & Databases.

I am really passionate about teaching and sharing my experience with others. I love making the hard and complex subjects easy to understand. Like, in university I was helping my fellow ----- with their homework's and assignments.

I focus on creating training material that actually teach you how to program. A big difference is that whereas most of the courses you tend to follow blindly my courses provide you with practical skills. If you really want to understand how things work and how to become a better programmer, you are in the right place!

On a quest to provide you with the education you have never received!
