This course is for those want to be a Java programmer by following a proven methodology and one-to-one online version of the lectures I gave to hundreds of students in several classrooms in several high-quality training center.
The biggest missing part for programming students is the exercises that they may work on. This class has high-quality exercises and their solutions right after the video explanations.
Here is our agenda:
0- Why java? What is platform independency? Why it is the most used programming language in professional software development?
1- Learn programming basics:
Using variables, primitive types, mathematical and logical operators.
Control structures, loops and really high-quality exercises to have hands-on experience.
2- Learn arrays:
Use this basic data collection and use them inside real-world, fun practices. Find the longest lost series of an NBA team for instance :)
3- Learn object oriented programming:
Learn encapsulation, inheritance, abstraction with great examples and exercises. Possibly you wasted lots of time by watching similar unclear explanations so far. It is time to polish the dust of these concepts.
4- Learn core types and great utility classes of Java.
How a professional programmer leverages built-in types and utility classes in real life? StringBuilder, StringBuffer, Date type, String - Date conversions with SimpleDateFormat, Math class, Collections and Arrays class the topics you will learn.
5- Learn regular expressions.
Extracting useful data from a string by regular expressions is the greatest feature of all programming languages. But it is the most overlooked one. We don't overlook it. With two great explanation you will learn how to extract data from a URL and you will validate an email address ( by not Googling and copying of course!!!)
6- Learn data collections.
Everyone teaches you what is a list, set and map. How to put data and retrieve it. But this is the top of the iceberg. You MUST know where to use them, when to leverage the collections. Included exercises are asked in job interviews!!! Hold tight!!!
7- Learn file operations
How java communicates with files, read text files, binary files or write to them? How the content of the file is processed with data collections? You will learn by great exercises.
At this point you may move on Java EE course for further understanding.
Have a great experience!!!
I have bachelor and Msc degree on computer science engineering from one of the best universities in Turkey, Yeditepe University.
I have been working as software architecture for more than 6 years and developed many scalable, reusable CRM, e-state, campaign management systems in companies like Huawei, Ebay Turkey and Nortel Netas. I am specialized in JSF 2.0 and PrimeFaces,Struts 2.0 and Spring MVC for MVC structure, Spring for dependency injection, Hibernate for ORM, Oracle, PostgreSql as RDBMS, MongoDB for NoSQL, EhCache for caching, Android Programming, Semantic Web Programming.
I have taught Java EE, JSP/ Servlet basics and Android Programming to many colleagues in several companies like Huawei, EBay Turkey and universities like Yeditepe University.
