Skill Level

What you Will Learn
Begin with a tutorial on setting up your Java environment, then with tutorials on using the most popular Java IDEs: NetBeans, Eclipse, and IntelliJ. Then begin exploring Java development. Deitel uses an "early objects" approach in this video, so you are immediately immersed in the world of Java Classes, Objects, and Methods. You then learn about the key Control Statements in Java used to manage program flow. And the video finishes with a deeper exploration of Java methods and a powerful treatment of arrays in Java.

Who should take this course?
Programmers experienced in a high-level programming language and interested in building industrial-strength applications in Java

Course requirements
Familiarity with any high-level programming language, including C, C++, C#, JavaScript, etc...
