Welcome to the Java 11 Crash Course where you’ll learn Java programming fast. So we’re all getting busier and busier and that means that we’ve got less and less time available to us to work on our skills. And if we don’t have time or much time to work on our skills then how can we get the skills that we need to be able to get that first programming job or to perhaps get that promotion to a more senior development role? Now this course is the answer. It’s been designed specifically to teach you the essential skills that you need to become a productive Java programmer fast. Much faster in fact than many other courses on the market. Hi! My name is Tim and I’ll be leading you through the course along with my co-instructor Goran Lochert. I’ve been a professional software developer now for over 35 years and Goran’s been one for over 10 years so between us we’ve got a lot of experience with Java. I’ve been programming in Java for 18 years and Goran has or is Oracle Java certified. So the bottom line is we both know software development in Java and importantly how to pass on these skills to you in an easy to understand way. way I should say. Okay so why is this course different to other courses and how will it help you learn Java in the quickest amount of time well firstly all programming languages have obscure commands that get rarely used. So this course is focusing on teaching you the essential Java skills you need to become productive in the language in a fun and relaxed way that’s designed to ensure you retain the knowledge that you learn. Secondly we use a combination of small snippets of code and then larger completed projects that you get to work on and edit and improve and as a result you get to learn how to program working with real projects just like a professional programmer with I’ll be doing. So the end result of all this is you become skilled in the Java language quicker than you normally would. All right so we’ll be focusing on using Java 11 in this course and that’s because Oracle have announced recently that it’s the OTS or long term support version of Java that they’ll be supporting now for many years. But if you’re using an older version of Java or even a new one then you still be able to follow along with this course with no problems. Everything will work just fine. By the end of the course we’ll have a deep understanding of Java 11. In addition, you’ll learn how to debug code and how to refactor code and how to ensure that your programs adhere to Oracle’s Java conventions and also how to think like a programmer. And if any of those terms make no sense to you right now, they will by the end of this course. We’ve got hundreds of thousands of happy students and thousands of glowing reviews in our other courses on Udemy. All right so the course is backed by Udemy’s 30-day money-back guarantee so if you try the course and find it’s not for you then you can return it without any hassle. Alright so the ideal student is someone who wants to learn how to program in Java. There’s no previous programming experience that is, there’s none that’s required and there’s no other requirements or prerequisites to take the course other than having a computer to be able to type in the program. So if you’re ready now to begin your Java journey and get instant access to all the on-demand videos then sign up today and as I said you can begin instantly and I look forward to helping you learn Java.
