Welcome to Master Practical Java Development.  This course is designed to help you master the most in-demand and critical components for becoming a Core Java developer. Especially if you're going for a job interview or have a Java Project that needs your best performance. This course assumes no prior java experience so  prior Java so it will take you from zero to hero!

The topics covered include Object Orientation which I think is not stressed enough in other Java courses so I've got special focus on that throughout the lectures. You'll get plenty of practice writing classes and interfaces as well as countless methods with loops and if else statements, exception handling and file processing as well as how to debug software using Eclipse. You'll also be mastering the collections framework and diving deep into java generics. You'll learn all there is to know about multi-threading and the JDBC API for working with a MySQL database. There are also practical projects scattered throughout the course so that you can practice the concepts as you learn them. For example one of the projects is related to a car dealership management system and another assignment involves processing files with stock market data. So as you can see, I tried to keep the projects professional and industry relevant rather than cloning a game like flappy bird.

I want this course to be the ultimate go-to resource for anyone that's looking to become a core Java programmer so I intend on adding more content to this course based on new technologies and student feedback. The content is Java 9 ready which means I'll show you how to upgrade to the latest version of Java which is version 9 and I'll teach you how to configure Eclipse to work with both Java 8 as well as version 9.

Don’t just take it from me, take it from other students that have taken this course.

★★★★★ Here’s reviews from real students that took this course ★★★★★

★★★★★ Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I know nothing about java and so far I’m keeping up just fine.

★★★★★ Easy to understand the difficult topics as well. Overall nice course. Learnt the basic java concepts very well and also collections framework and JDBC topics are also very nicely explained.

★★★★★ The explanation of each concept is done very well. This is a great course for beginners.

★★★★★ This course is awesome! The teacher is very thorough with his explanations of the theory and application. I'm really enjoying it!

★★★★★ Yes it is for sure the best!! As it covers all the topic from basic to advanced topics in java.

★★★★★ I am taking my second semester of Java programming at university. I signed up for this course to augment my university studies. I learn more from this one course with a better understanding of programming principles than I have learned at university.The university gives me college credit; this course will get me a job!

★★★★★ I'm taking a class about object-oriented programming in relation to Java. However, the reading material uses quite a bit of technical lengthy jargon that I simply get confused. This class has been extremely helpful in presenting concepts in a straightforward and simple way. I can understand what he's explaining and it makes sense. This is a fantastic course and I'd recommend it to anyone who is feeling discouraged about learning about object-oriented programming.

★★★★★ Congratulations – the instructor has turned complicated topics into easy interactive components. High praises to the instructor are in order. The instructor was very knowledgeable, worked at a good pace, and most importantly, was very good at communicating.
