About This Class

Welcome Everyone !! Java is one of the most popular programming languages on this planet. Java is used for application development, web development and for mobile devices, the Android operating system used on phones has strong similarities to Java.  This course quickly teaches the user how to write their first java program. It is very practical and does not waste time on too much theory. All that is needed is a text editor like notepad. It is not necessary to download Eclipse or Netbeans which are Integrated Development Environments for Java.

The course covers the installation of java, some program creation theory and a practical lesson on writing your first program. The student will not need programming knowledge but you do need good computer skills and some knowledge of downloading from the internet as well as installing software.

The course is intended to be very simple so it is not an in depth study of the language. I will produce other courses that explain the language in more detail.

Straight forward and concise, very nice! Cannot be too clear when teaching noobs about programming lol. I'm familiar with Object Oriented Programming using Unity and Blender so I understand the need for clear instruction, Great job!

Hi !!. I have been designing and developing software for 20 years. I first began Java programming in 1998 and did a prototype java application that integrated to AS400 midrange computers. In 2000 I obtained my sun certification in java programming and also tried the java developer exam but couldn't complete it because of work commitments.

From 2000 to 2006 I was involved in the design and development of numerous java programs. The one program FTP'd data from the AS400 to a windows machine. In another instant I designed an application that produced an XML document for Creditors remittance.

In 2007 I started working with Java application servers like Tomcat and IBM Websphere application server. I wrote Java servlets and Javabeans. I also got involved with the as400 java toolbox which allowed calling of AS400 objects from a windows system. At this time I became very interested in learning software design patterns and principles and studied these in depth so that I could learn how to write better software. I have a very good understanding of the standard java classes and how to design and develop flexible and maintainable software.
