I’m super excited to let you know that I just added two new Java courses to my coding school.
You might ask why I’ve been working on Java courses. Good question. There are a number of reasons.
First and foremost, I had tons of requests for a Java course amongst my students. So, that changed the priority of the courses in my pipeline. Now, let’s talk about Java a little bit…
Java is a versatile programming language and you can use it to build all kinds of applications from stand-alone desktop applications to complex, distributed applications. It’s also the language behind millions of Android apps.
What about Kotlin? In case you don’t know, Kotlin is a new language and it’s the preferred language for building new Android apps. Yes, that is true. But that does not mean that Java is dead!
Kotlin is still a new language. There are millions of apps and websites already built with Java. These are not going to be overwritten with Kotlin over the night. There’s actually no reason to do so.
A common misconception amongst developers is that just because there’s a new language or framework, an existing application should be re-written with that new language/framework. Wrong! In most cases, the cost of doing so outweighs the benefits. That’s why it’s hard (and sometimes impossible) to convince businesses to invest in re-writing their applications.
Also, most of Android ecosystem is based on Java. If you want to learn Kotlin, you still need to know Java, otherwise, you’ll get stuck along the way. Once you learn Java, you can quickly pick up Kotlin.
So, the bottom line is: Java has a big job market and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
The Ultimate Java Mastery Series
No, let’s see what these Java courses are all about.
Ultimate Java Mastery Part 1 is a short and sweet course (3.5 hours) that you can watch in an afternoon. It teaches you the fundamentals of programming in Java.
If you’re a C# developer, you can go through the course quickly and get familiar with Java syntax. They’re so similar. You’ll probably miss some of your favorite C# features. To be fair, C# is more feature-rich than Java. But Java has a bigger market. Why? It’s all “marketing” my friend. Marketing! It’s got nothing to do with which language is better. Also, there is not a global definition of what is a “better” language.
Ultimate Java Mastery Part 2 is about object-oriented programming in Java. There are tons of bad and wrong information about object-oriented programming out there. That’s why it took me personally a long time to understand what object-oriented programming is really all about.
This course is a must for anyone pursuing a job as a professional software engineer. Even if you do have a job, I’d still encourage you to watch this course because it will change how you think about building software. I promise that you’re not going to find this content anywhere else. Most books and courses fail to explain object-oriented programming!
This is also a short and sweet course (4 hours long) that you can watch in an afternoon. No time is wasted. Every single minute of the course is worth watching.
Ultimate Java Mastery Part 3 is about advanced topics in Java and is not produced yet. In this part, I’m planning to talk about the module system, JDBC, generics, streams, JDBC, concurrency, etc.
You can get these courses individually or as part of my Ultimate Java Mastery series bundle. The bundle is currently on sale for $29 and contains the first two parts. If you enroll now, you’ll get the third part and any other courses I add to this bundle for free.
If you want to get the bundle, act quickly as it will go back up to the normal price of $199 as soon as the third course is released…
