Netbeans is one of the most powerful development environments available for programmers today!
However, most programmers never get around to learning all of the extremely powerful features that Netbeans provides. It's like using the most advanced smartphone for nothing more than making phone calls.
Look at it this way: An average programmer will work for 40 years in his or her life. Assuming 4 weeks of vacation a year, that's 9600 days programming. If you can take advantage of Netbeans to become 20% more efficient in your coding, you will save 1920 days or 5 years of your life! Of course, your mileage may vary... ;-> However...
I promise you that taking a few hours to go through this course today will pay for itself many, many times over in your career as a programmer!
Join me in our journey as we unlock the powerful features of Netbeans and learn how to refactor code, have Netbeans auto-generate code for us, use the powerful debugging functionality, create our own code shortcuts and many, many other of Netbean's powerful features.
In this course, we will learn how to:
Also, as your guide, I look forward to hearing from you! Just send my any questions that you have or ideas for new modules to this course and I will do my best to help you!
Let's get started!!!
Welcome to the world of Netbeans!
Using Netbeans to customize the look and feel of your code. Introduction to developing your own coding style.
Hi, My name is Rich and I've spent my entire career working with software. I am currently a professor at a local college where I teach students how to write good, clean, well-managed code!
I also spent many years at Microsoft where I worked with many great programmers and a few not so great ones. Programmers sometimes make the mistake of focusing too much on writing 'clever' code and not enough on writing clean, readable, maintainable code.
Over the years, I've come to realize is that it is a programmer's style that is the most important factor in getting the really good jobs. Unfortunately, it is the thing that is most often ignored in education!
Please join me as we look at how to improve our programming skills and style in order to become the kind of programmer that companies will pay anything to get!
