Are you familiar with the Java language but not quite sure how to start building applications for the real world? The Spring Framework is the standard for building applications in Java but this isn't your parents Spring Framework.
Long gone are the days of needing a PHD to setup a Spring Project. With the help of Spring Boot we can now have applications up in minutes instead of days. In this course we will take a quick moment to explain what the Spring Framework is and then move right into the fun stuff. We will learn all about Spring Boot as well how to setup our own development environment and how to use the tools that are required of us to be productive.
You will write your own Hello World application by the end of this short introduction to boot and be ready for more. What are you waiting for? This course is free and Spring is a skill employers are looking for so stop procrastinating and sign up today!
Hello there. My name is Dan Vega and I will be your instructor for this Introduction to Spring Boot. I want take this opportunity to say thank you for signing up for this course. I have a real passion for teaching and I am so excited to lead you on this adventure.
About This Course
This course is designed to teach you how to get started with Spring Boot. You DO NOT need any prior experience with the Spring Framework but you should be familiar with the Java programming language.
What you will learn
Finally I just want to cover my teaching style. I like to teach the same way that I like to be taught which is by utilizing a mixture of presentation slides, code demos, exercises and quizzes. I have found that you are much more likely to retain knowledge by applying what you have learned. So don’t get comfortable. It might be the first day of school but we have a quiz coming up at the end of this section.
Spring Boot makes it easy to build Spring Framework applications. As I said in the introduction you don't need to know the Spring Framework to take this course. I am going to take this opportunity to give you a little background on what the Spring Framework is and why you should care about it.
Now that we know a little bit about what the Spring Framework is where does Spring Boot come into play. How is Spring Boot going to help me build Spring Framework Applications?
All of the code for this course is hosted on github. In this lecture I just want to show you how to get this source and the conventions I used for storing it.
In this quiz we are just going to make sure we understand some of the basics that we covered in this section.
This is just a quick exercise to get you familiar with the Spring documentation.
In this tutorial you will learn how to install Java 8 on Mac OSX.
How to install IntelliJ on Mac OSX
The Hello World Application is a typical start to learning any language. Here we are going to build a Spring Boot application from scratch. All you need for this is a text editor and you might want to take some notes because after this tutorial you will be writing your own application in your very first exercise.
We installed Gradle in the previous section so how can we use to build our Spring Boot applications. Actually we don't even need Gradle because the project comes with a Gradle wrapper. What is Gradle and how do we use it.
In this lecture we will discuss Starter POMs. You may have heard me talk about them throughout this course and now we are going to learn a little about them. Their only purpose is to provide the necessary dependencies to work with the library; see it as an opinionated view of what is required to get started. We will also go through a short demo that will help you understand how they work and take away the magic behind them.
How to create executable JARs and how to run them. We will also discuss the concept of Make JAR not WAR
I just want to thank you for taking this free getting started course. If you enjoyed this course I hope you will be inspired to sign up for my entire course and I have included a coupon to get the entire course for only $19.
Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.
I have been writing software for over 16+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 16,000 students.
When I am not writing software I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
