When I started software engineering, I always wanted to code without any configurations, version control or build server configurations . Later, I realized that coding is just one part of software engineering: architectural designs, design patterns and the ability to write reusable and loosely coupled software components are much more important parts of programming. At the beginning it was quite hard for me to comprehend the role of these technologies, now I know for ceratain that they are very important as well as useful and can be used on daily basis. So in this course I would like to show you how to separate modules with the help of maven as well as to use the Java Persistence API for database related operations. We will cover Maven in the first section. Then we will consider JPA as a framework. We will learn how to create fancy user interfaces with the Swing framework. At the last section of the course we will wire everything together.
Hope you will like it!
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.
