Course Description

Learn the basic concepts, tools, and functions that you will need to build fully functional programs with the popular programming language, Java.

Build a strong foundation in Java and object-oriented programming with this tutorial for beginners.

  • Java Development Kit Installation
  • Types and Operators
  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), Classes, and Objects
  • Loops and Conditionals

A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips
Learning the fundamentals of Java puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Java is free, easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the base for all object-oriented programming languages.

Jobs in java development are plentiful, and being able to learn Java will give you a strong background to more easily pick up other object-oriented languages such as C++, C#, Ruby, and Pascal.

Content and Overview

Suitable for beginning programmers, through this course of 115 lectures and 10 hours of content, you’ll learn all of the Java fundamentals and establish a strong understanding of the concept behind object-oriented programming (OOP). Each chapter closes with exercises, putting your new learned skills into practical use immediately.

Starting with the installation of the Java Development Kit, this course will take you through Java variable types, operators, and how to use them. By creating classes and objects, you’ll a establish a strong understanding of OOP.

With these basics mastered, the course will take you through program flow control by teaching you how to use for loops, while loops, and conditional if-else statements to add complexity and functionality to your programs.

Students completing the course will have the knowledge to create functional and useful Java programs.

Complete with working files and code samples, you’ll be able to work alongside the author as you work through each concept, and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Over 115 lectures and 10 hours of content!

    Great info, but a bit repetitive and long

    This course has a lot of information, and is great, but it goes on a long time on subjects that don't need to have a lot of time spent on them. Because of this, it gets a bit dry, and it has been hard to stay motivated to complete it.

    • Victor Lopez

    Good, but....

    Not everyone has Windows. I have OS X Yosemite. I don't expect to see new vids running on macs, but some guide lines for Mac users will be really appreciated.

    • Space_tribesman

    A good place to start

    This is a good place to start and there is some good info here. However, here are my criticisms: The teacher types too fast (let the students catch up) The selection needs to start with the big things first and goto the minor details later (learning \t should be anywhere near the beginning) more practice on the student's own

    • Johnny Chan

    A very structured Java intro / refresher course

    I have background programming in other languages (C++, SAS, Fortran, Matlab) previously but never tried Java before so decided to give this intro course a go. I spent about a week to complete the entire course (few hourse per evening :). I loved the short and concise chapters. Hands on exercises were easy to follow - I didn't get stuck for a single moment. I believe this course is suitable for anyone who are interested in programming, regardless of whether you have previous programming experience at all. This course is friendly for both beginners / experienced programmers. All the exercise codes can be downloaded. My recommendation is to actually type out every single code yourselves for better hands-on experience - just follow the instructor's demo step by step. It is a very satisfying to compile and run codes and see how things work! Pause the video and rewind as needed. Work at your own pace. A highly recommended intro course of Java and Object Orientated Programming.

    • Matt Lambert

    Great introduction

    Great introduction to Java, deep but not overly difficult to follow. My only complaint is that the instructor goes quite fast. I'm a quick typer but I had to regularly pause the video to catch up on the code writing. It may be tricky for someone who can't type well to follow. Overall great intro to Java
