Are you aiming to get your first Java Programming job but struggling to find out what skills employers want and which course will give you those skills?
This course is designed to give you the Java skills you need to get a job as a Java developer. By the end of the course you will understand Java extremely well and be able to build your own Java apps and be productive as a software developer.
Lots of students have been success with getting their first job or a promotion after going through the course.
Here is just one example of a student who lost her job and despite having never coded in her life previously, got a full time software developer position in just a few months after starting this course. She didn’t even complete the course!
“Three months ago I lost my job, came to a turning point in my life, and finally made the drastic decision to completely change course. I decided to switch career path and go into coding. My husband found and gave me your Complete Java Masterclass at Udemy as a gift, and I wholeheartedly dove into it as a life line. Following your course has been absolutely enjoyable (still working on it, not yet finished), and has been a great way of keeping on course, dedicated and motivated. Yesterday, three months after starting the course and honestly to my surprise, I received (and accepted!) a job offer as a full-time developer. I wanted to just drop you a line to say thank you for doing this work, for being such a dedicated teacher, and for putting all this knowledge available out there in such an approachable way. It has, literally, been life changing. With gratitude, Laura”
The course is a whopping 76 hours long. Perhaps you have looked at the size of the course and are feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of finding time to complete it. Maybe you are wondering if you need to go through it all?
Firstly, Laura’s story above shows that you do not have to complete the entire course – she was yet to complete the course when she accepted her developer job offer.
Secondly, the course is designed as a one stop shop for Java.
The core java material you need to learn java development is covered in the first seven sections (around 14 hours in total). The Java Basics are covered in those sections. The rest of the course covers intermediate, advanced and optional material you do not technically need to go through.
For example section 13 is a whopping 10 hours just by itself and is aimed at those students who want to build desktop applications with graphical user interfaces. JavaFX (which is the technology used in this section) is something that most java developers will rarely or never need to work on. So you could skip that section entirely. But if you are one of the few that need to build user interfaces, then the content is there and ready for you. And there are other sections you can completely avoid if you wish.
If you want to know absolutely everything about Java, then you can go through the entire course if you wish, but it’s not necessary to do so if you are just looking to learn the essential information to get a java developer position.
Why would you choose to learn Java?
The reality is that there is a lot of computer languages out there. It’s in the hundreds. Why would you choose the Java language?
The number one reason is its popularity. According to many official websites that track popularity of languages, Java is either #1 or in the top 3. Popularity means more companies and their staff are using it, so there are more career opportunities available for you if you are skilled in the language.
The last thing you want to do is pick a language that is not in mainstream use. Java came out in the 1990’s and is still very popular today.
What version of Java should you learn?
Generally speaking you would want to learn the very latest version of a computer programming language, but thats not necessarily the case with Java.
Until recently Java releases were infrequent (one major release in 3 years was common). Companies standardised on specific versions of Java. Right now most companies are still focused on Java 8, which is a relatively old version, dating back to 2015.
Oracle (the owners of Java) are now releasing new versions of Java every six months, and when the new version comes out the old version is no longer supported.
But to cater for most companies who tend to stick to specific versions of Java for a long time, they have marked the current version of Java – Java 11 as LTS – or Long Term support. That means that they guarantee to support this version for the long term – for a number of years at least.
Companies will stick to versions of Java that are supported in the long term. For career purposes you should learn the appropriate versions of Java that your future employer will likely be using. Right now thats Java 8 and Java 11 (Java 9 and Java 10 have been released and already been marked obsolete and are no longer supported).
The good news is that this course is focused on Java 8, and has recently been updated for Java 11.
Will this course give me core java skills?
Yes it will. Core Java is the fundamental parts of the java jdk (the java development kit) that programmers need to learn to move onto other more advanced technologies.
