Java is one of the top five programming languages, and is used for websites, embedded controllers, and Android app development. This is an introduction to get you started programming with Java 9-and the newly introduced JShell. Instructor Kathryn Hodge covers all the basics: data types, strings, arrays, loops, and functions. She helps you control the flow and logic of your code, and debug your project to make sure it runs perfectly. Then go a bit beyond the basics and learn advanced techniques such as encapsulation, inheritance, functional programming, and lambdas. Kathryn introduces challenges along the way to practice your new skills. This three-hour course is perfect for developers who need to get up to speed with Java fast, as well as for beginning programmers who want their first taste of this popular language.
