  • Java Fundamentals

    In order to be a great Java developer you must first learn the fundamentals of Java. This course introduces the fundamental concepts and practices of Java programming. These include basic Object-oriented Programming (OOP) concepts such as classes, encapsulation and inheritance, as well as core Java concepts such as collections, exceptions and commonly used Java types.

  • Advanced Java Programming Techniques

    The best Java programs combine excellent software designs with modern language features. This course will teach you some lesser known features of Java, such as functional programming, I/O, serialization, and reflection. Strengthen your software design intuition by exploring the design ideas that underpin understandable, extensible and scalable software systems. Learn the basic concepts and techniques of concurrent programming in Java, so your programs can take advantage of modern, multi-core hardware.

  • Java Application Deployment

    This course introduces Java ecosystem topics that are necessary to develop production-ready applications. It starts by covering the construction and makeup of Java program artifacts. You will learn how Java program code is compiled, packaged and executed. Next, you’ll learn how to use Maven to automate and customize the build process, as well as manage external project dependencies. This course also covers the topic of Modules, introduced in Java 9. In addition to build topics, this course will also teach you to use the tools of JUnit 5 to write unit tests and evaluate code coverage. To expand our testing capabilities for complex applications, the Mockito library and test doubles will be covered as well.
