Getting Started with Java

via Udemy


A gentle introduction to the Java programming language along with the tools you will need to be a productive developer

What you'll learn:
  • Install Java on your local machine
  • Write, Compile and Run a Hello, World application from the command line.
  • Install IntelliJ and be productive inside this awesome IDE
  • Understand what a build tool is and create a Java project from scratch
  • Understand where to find help when they get stuck

Irecently purchased a new laptop and thought to myself, this would be a great time to show others how Isetup my machine for Java development, and that is how this course was born.

Iwant to make sure Iam very upfront about who this course is for and who it isn't for.If you are an experienced Java developer this course probably isn't for you. If you arenew to programming ornew to the Java language this course is for you.

When Istarted out writing Java Ialways got confused with all the Acronyms in the language. What is the difference between the JREand the JDK, what is the JVM and what is an SDK. We will answer all of these questions and more. We will also discusshow to install Java and switch between different versions. While we are at it we might as well write our first Java program.

Next, we will move into Installing my favorite IDE, IntelliJ. From there Iwill walk you through a ton of features of the IDE. All of these features are there to make you a more productive Java developer.

My hope for you is that this course will give you a peek into the world of Java as you begin your journey. You might not use everything in this course right away but if they come up in conversations at school or with coworkers you will know exactly what they are talking about. I look at courses like a good book. If you can take away just 1 or 2 ideas from the course, Ihave done my job.

ILOVEthe Java programming language and hope that Ican make your entry into this wonderful language an easy one.
