Core Java has long been recognized as the leading, no-nonsense tutorial and reference for experienced programmers who want to write robust Java code for real-world applications.

In Core Java 11 Fundamentals Complete Video Course, Second Edition, Cay S. Horstmann takes that same approach to introducing experienced programmers to Java, with detailed demonstrations and updated coverage of Java SE 11 features like Single File Launcher (if your program is contained in a single file, you don't need to compile it first). This training pairs with the forthcoming eleventh edition of Core Java, Volume I—Fundamentals, which has been fully updated to cover Java SE 11.

The source code and presentation slides for this course can be found at:



The first two lessons of Core Java 11 Fundamentals Complete Video Course, Second Edition, quickly review the history of Java and show you, step by step, how to install the software development environment. In Lesson 3, you will learn how to do in Java what you already know in another programming language: write branches and loops, and work with numbers, strings, and arrays.

Lesson 4 covers object-oriented programming. Java is thoroughly object-oriented, and the lesson shows you how to use built-in classes and how to build your own. Lessons 5 and 6 cover inheritance and interfaces as well as the lambda expressions, a powerful new feature of Java SE 8.

Lesson 7 shows you what to do when your programs do the wrong thing. The lesson covers exception handling, logging, and debugging. In lesson 8, you will learn how to write generic code that works for many different data types. Lesson 9 puts those skills to work, when we examine the multitude of Java collections that allow you to organize your data in many ways.

The final three lessons introduce the fundamentals of user interface programming in Java.
