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 moving-fast 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.
The course is aimed at complete beginners.
I 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, because 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.
What version of Java will I learn?
All videos in the course have been recorded using the very latest version: Java 17. 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 17 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 17 will get updated regularly over this time, but it will remain version 17. 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 17 which gives you the most useful skills for your future employer.
What will you learn in the course?
You'll learn the essential Java skills needed to become employable as a Java developer.

Who this course is for:
- For anyone who wants to learn to code.
My name is Alex, and I am a 24-year-old software developer. Programming is not just a profession for me; it's a true passion that fuels my every day. I find immense joy in learning new things related to programming and technology. It's like solving a puzzle that constantly evolves, challenging me to think creatively and analytically.
Being a software developer allows me to turn my ideas into reality, and that's something I truly cherish. Over time, I have had the privilege of creating a few apps and working on various projects, each of which has taught me valuable lessons and expanded my horizons.
But what truly excites me is the opportunity to share my knowledge with others. There's an incredible sense of fulfillment that comes from helping others understand the world of programming. I love teaching and guiding aspiring developers to discover the same wonder and fascination that I experience in this field.
In my heart, I believe that programming has the potential to create amazing things for humanity. The power to create software that can make people's lives easier, solve problems, and bring positive change is awe-inspiring. I am convinced that the more people who learn programming, the better it is for the world as a whole.
Every day, I wake up with the drive to code, learn, and inspire others to embrace this world of infinite possibilities. The fast-paced nature of technology excites me, as it means there will always be something new to explore and uncover. With each line of code I write and each person I teach, I feel like I'm contributing my part to a larger movement of progress and innovation.
In conclusion, programming is not just a job for me; it's an integral part of who I am. It ignites a fire within me to learn, create, and make a positive impact on the world. As I continue on this journey, I hope to inspire many others to join me in using technology for the betterment of humanity.
