Learn how to build your first Java Project
No programming experience is needed for this course
The only requirement is to be ready to learn and open minded
This course is the best online resource you need to learn programming from scratch, applied on easy-to-understand Java programs, where every concept is explained step-by-step, so that you can understand it.
Java is the language used by many large companies and more than 9 million developers around the world, so it definitely makes sense to start your programming career by learning this language. Also, all the concepts learned in this course are applicable in other languages as well.
I wrote my first line of code 10 years ago when I was in highschool. I quickly got addicted by how easy you could build useful programs using C# and Windows Forms.
I followed the Computer Science University track where I managed to set the ground knowledge for anything related to Software Eeering (Algorithms, Data Structures, Operating Systems, Multithreading, Distributed Computing, Networking, and many other topics), and I finalized this amazing 6-year learning path by getting a Master's Degree in Parallel and Distributed Systems where I built from the ground a custom Kubernetes Gang Scheduler optimised for running Spark Jobs.
Currently, I'm a Software Eeer focused on high-scale JVM-based development. I build code used by millions of people around the world.
Why I built this course
I learned Java from the Internet, trying to build projects, hitting all kinds of issues, searching on StackOverflow (and somes asking lots of questions), I wish I would follow an introductory course on that would guide me through those new concepts, instead of trying and failing so many s.
For that reason, I thought that building a course where I explain the basic concepts of this language, would definitely help other people to save and avoid going into the same pitfalls that I went through.
What is the content course
This course is split into multiple chapters, each one exposing a different functionality of this language:
Chapter 1 - Introduction
In this chapter we're going to learn why we need programming and what is the role of a programming language in general
Chapter 2 - Java Installation
We're going to learn about Java versions, the difference between JDK and JRE
And most importantly, we're going to see how can we install a JDK from official sources
Chapter 3 - First Steps into the Java Programming
In this chapter we're going to create our first Java application in IntelliJ Idea and we're going to understand the syntax and structure of the simplest Java program
Chapter 4 - Working with Data in Java
Any software application needs data in order to do something meaningful for us
In this chapter, we're going to see how Java allows us to store and update the information in our programs
We're going to learn about data types, operations on text and math functions
Chapter 5 - Working with Control Flow Instructions in Java
On the same idea as above, to build some useful applications, we need to add decisioning logic into them.
With control flow instructions, we can do that in a very easy way. This is the main focus on this chapter.
Chapter 6 - Learning the Basics of Object Oriented Programming
Java has an Object Oriented nature by default, so we need to understand what this means, right from the start
We're going to see in this chapter what are classes, methods, fields, the static keyword, and many more concepts
Chapter 7 - [PROJECT] Building a Password Hasher in Java
The last chapter is going to be focused on combining all the information we got so far, in a small project where we're going to process the data (passwords) in a couple of input files.
What are the requirements for this course
A computer with medium specs (we only need to install IntelliJ Idea Community Edition)
Willingness to learn and an open-mind
Thank you for taking the to look through this description and I'm looking forward to see you in the first lecture!
