This complete beginner to advanced Java course will teach you everything you need to know in order to code awesome, profitable projects, and of course, have fun whilst doing it.
Why learn Java compared to other programming languages?
Java is the most popular programming language in use (TIOBE index) since it’s the only language that works across all computer platforms (and android mobile) without needing to be recompiled (edited) for each one.
You code once, and the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) does all the work in making sure your awesome new programme runs smoothly on any platform, whether Windows, Mac, Linux or Android mobile.
Why is this great?
Not only does this multi-platform language save you countless hours in rewriting code, it means you can make your software available for download, and even for sale on every marketplace -- reaching millions more potential users, both on desktop and mobile!
Besides, you can’t afford not to know it...
Think about it. If your competition or fellow coders know Java -- the most popular coding language -- and you don’t…
Who has the huge market advantage?
Who will bring your awesome idea to life first, dominating all platforms?
Who will score the big companies and clients?
The one who knows Java inside out of course. You can be that person.
“Learning to program with Java was a no-brainer. It opened a lot of doors”
Don’t get me wrong, this course is not for everyone.
This is not some pushbutton, get rich quick recipe book where you copy other people’s code, make low-quality programs and hope to have contracts thrown at you from deep-pocket clients, or code the most intuitive, creative programs on your own.
This course takes work. There’s a lot to learn with Java, but with the right guidance, information, tutoring and tests, it doesn’t have to be as difficult or time-intensive as you think.
Who this course is NOT for:
People looking to flood the market with poorly functioning programs for a quick sale
People just looking to learn the ‘bare minimum', stay at the novice level and hope to succeed with Java
People who’re happy with mediocre programs
People who put in little effort and aren't motivated to find massive success with Java development
Who this course IS for:
People who want to produce the highest-quality, creative software
People looking to go from absolute beginner to advanced Java expert
People looking for expert knowledge and insider tips used by the world’s best programmers and top companies
People looking to make money ONLY developing fully-functioning, intuitive programs - whether corporate, self-employed or freelance
People who believe in hard work, and who aren’t afraid to fail before they succeed
If this sounds like you, then you’ll find yourself going from beginner to successful Java programmer with less time, effort and investment than any other resource out there. Not to mention you get a certification of completion with this course, giving you extra credentials over others.
I’m always updating this course with fresh content, too
It’s no secret how technology is advancing at a rapid rate. New, more powerful hardware and software are being released every day, meaning it’s crucial to stay on top with the latest knowledge.
That’s why I’m always adding new, up-to-date content to this course at no extra charge. Buy this course once, and you’ll have lifetime access to it and any future updates (which are on the way as we speak).
Now that Java 9 has rolled out, you won’t have to worry about buying any more courses or thick, heavy books. Simply log in to this course (I’ll send you an email when any updates are added) and you can quickly and easily catch up on any new and exciting releases!
With this complete Java developer course, you’re expertise will never go out of date (or ‘obsolete’ if we want to get nerdy).
I’ll personally answer all your questions
As if this course wasn’t complete enough, I offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).
This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With my hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.
That’s just one reason why I was voted top 10 in the 2015 Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the entire site.
Student Quote: “Tim is extremely responsive, all questions are dealt with rapidly and the discussion forum is very interactive. Tim is ace!”

Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Android, Python, Java and Spring Framework courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or any one else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java, and a variety of other languages. In addition he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field! Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today! No previous experience is necessary.
In 2017, video training is the quickest way to learn, and with Tim's experience and training, it is possible for you to become a software developer! You can do this!
Why not start today? Click one of his courses below, and watch his introductory video, to find out more about who he is and what he can offer you.
I’ve been a software developer for over 10 years (8 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.
I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8), and have a lot of experience with Java, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Maven, and JavaFX.
In addition, I’ve been heavily involved in games development, and frameworks used to create games.
I am an official developer contributor for LibGDX (a very popular game framework), and am heavily experienced with it, as well as AndEngine, Unity and Unreal engine.
Teaching people and sharing my knowledge is a real passion of mine, and I really enjoy providing information that is not accessible anywhere else.
I create training material that actually teach you how to program, and how things work! An important distinction, since many tutorials on the Internet allow you to follow along blindly, but fail to explain things so that you can apply this to other projects in the future.
If you want to truly understand how things work, and how to become a programmer, you are in the right place!
I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You Never Received At School!
The Learn Programming Academy was created by Tim Buchalka, a software developer with 35 years experience, who is also an instructor on Udemy, with over 173,000 students in his courses on Java, Android, Python and the Spring framework.
The Academy’s goal in the next three years, is to teach one million people to learn how to program.
Apart from Tim’s own courses, which are all available here, we are working with the very best teachers, creating courses to teach the essential skills required by developers, at all levels.
One other important philosophy is that our courses are taught by real professionals,
software developers with real and substantial experience in the industy, who are also great teachers. All our instructors are experienced software developers!
Our team is busy creating new courses right now.
Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn how to program for the very first time, or to brush up on your existing skills, or to learn new languages and frameworks, the Academy has you covered.
