In this course, we will take a quick moment to explain what the Spring Framework is and then move right into the fun stuff. We will learn all about Spring Boot, as well how to setup our own development environment and how to use the tools that are required of us to be productive.

You will write your own Hello World application by the end of this short introduction to Spring Boot and be ready for more. What are you waiting for? This course is free and Spring is a skill employers are looking for, so stop procrastinating and sign up today!

Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves, and are willing to put in the work.

I have been writing software for over 20+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 115,000 students.

When I am not writing software I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts, and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
