Description

Hi!

This course is designed for students or anyone else who want to start Java as a programming language. We will consider several topics ranging from installing Java itself to MySQL database operations. The first chapter will be about the basics: loops, decision making, variables and so on. The next chapters will be about exception handling as well as how to deal with input/output operations. Of course, we will consider the object orinted principles: inheritance, polymorphism and encapsulation as well. The last chapter will be about how to connect to a MySQL database and how to make the basic database-related operations: inserting new items, removing items or updating items in the database table.

Hope you will like it!

Hi!

My name is Balazs Holczer. I am from Budapest, Hungary. I am qualified as a physicist and later on I decided to get a master degree in applied mathematics. At the moment I am working as a simulation engineer at a multinational company. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university. Later on I got acquainted with machine learning techniques, artificial intelligence, numerical methods and recipes such as solving differential equations, linear algebra, interpolation and extrapolation. These things may prove to be very very important in several fields: software engineering, research and development or investment banking. I have a special addiction to quantitative models such as the Black-Scholes model, or the Merton-model. Quantitative analysts use these algorithms and numerical techniques on daily basis so in my opinion these topics are definitely worth learning.
