Learn Java from scratch and become Java Software Engineer: Java basics, OOP, Interview questions, Git
This is the first part of fundamental training program ‘Java from Zero to First Job’. As it’s declared in the course name, it’s created for people who want to learn programming from scratch. You need to know how to turn on your computer, no other knowledge is required for this course 🙂 The rest will be covered in lessons.
Before starting creation of this course, our team attentively investigated feedbacks for existing courses on Udemy platform and tried to focus on the feedbacks for the top-rated courses to understand what can be improved in this course and make it even more better from the quality standpoint. After analysis, we understand what will help students to learn Java in more efficient way. In this course:
– High concentration of useful material in each lesson
Sometimes you can notice that watching of 5 minutes of our lesson is equivalent to watching of other 30 minutes lesson.
This is because time spent for preparation for the lesson (script for the lesson, lesson structure) and video editing (to cut boring pieces of the lesson, or time when program loads) sometimes 10 times as much (sometimes even 20) as final lesson duration after video editing.
So you can be sure, that this ~7 hours training course of Java basics is equivalent or even better of training courses of java basics that are 30 hours long. Only your homework and coding exercises including EXAM task might take approximately 10 hours for implementation.
Also each topic is separated from another. In case some concept will be explained in the next lesson and you don’t need to worry about understanding this in scope of this lesson – instructor will make announcement when specific topic will be covered.
Go and try it yourself! We will appreciate your feedback.
– Relevant knowledge
After our team investigated other Java courses on Udemy we realized that most of them has nothing in common with real life. Information which is shared there is very old and significantly out of date. For example, instructor teaches framework which is not used already for 15 years. Or instructor do a stress on the programming design which is not used anymore at all!
Instructor of this course is consultant in the top-rated IT outsourcing company and helps to bring cutting-edge solutions in IT for all his clients. Feel free to check LinkedIn page of instructor and check skills endorsement. More than 18 thousand people acrooss all over the world (BTW most of them are from top 100 companies of the world) evaluated skills of Andrii Piatakha.
With this course you can be sure that you will spend your time learning the right things from the one of the best IT consultants in the world.
– Sequence of lessons
After the years of teaching offline, and based on the feedbacks of students who are passing online courses we realized how important the sequence of lessons while teaching Java. The same issue is with the books where information is completely unstructured what makes things even more complex. For example, how students can learn object oriented programming from the first lesson if they don’t know yet the java syntax basics? Or how student can implement hometask if he/she doesn’t aware of java methods specifics, or doesn’t know yet how to read program input?
So in this course you can be sure, that you will not get hometask to implement without having enough information to implement it. The program which is in this course is proven by many students who completed it offline and now work as software engineers in outsourcing companies and as a freelancers.
– Interview practice tests
Being an IT consultant in different companies, tutor of this course was in charge ot driving interview process in companies to make sure, that company selects the best people. That’s why the first interview is always test. In case test is completed, candidate is invited to have a conversation. That’s why, in this course we want to prepare you to complete tests sucessfully!
Specially for our students, we prepared tests which could be used to evaluate your knowledge during the interview process.
2 tests. 90 questions each (180 interview tests in total). 120 minutes each.
You can read explanation to answers! That also can help you to learn material better. Don’t wait, try it now!
– Q&A support
The significant difference between online and offline learning process is instructor’s availability. If you are in the one room with tutor he always can help you to get understanding specific concept or to help fix your code on your computer.
In this course, we are supporting students with answers to any questions flagged in Q&A section. In case there will be recurring questions – separate video lessons will be created to show how to address issue.
So with this course you are not just getting video materials, code exercises, source code, access to free mobile application without limits (which is still pretty cool, huh? 🙂 ) , but you also get tutor support and answers to your questions along with this course.
– Open source code
We hide nothing from our students! Including the source code for the hometask solutions and source code of examples which were shared during the lesson. Having the source code you can just copy and paste it to run it on your local computer to understand how things work better.
– Free mobile App without limits for our students
Knowing Java is one skill. Be able to pass interview in company – that is another skill 🙂 Nowadays a lot of companies use tests to select candidates on the first level of interview. We developed application to practice skills specifically for such purposes.
In this course we will provide you link to download our FREE mobile app for android. (soon it will be also available for iOS platforms)
Instructor of this course come up with hundreds tests which are used to test knowledge of candidates. With this application you will be well-prepared for the interview.
Also, only for our students – there is no limit on attempts to pass certification. In the course we will tell you how to set up special bonus code which will remove restrictions for our students inside the app.
– Coding exercises
To learn programming it is not enough just watching videos and reading books. You also need to have a lot of practice. In this training course you will have different practical tasks which will help you learn and understand Java better.
One of the key tasks where you can practice your knowledge is implementation of backend system for online store. Also you have a lot of tasks that use domain specific terminology: accounts, transactions, users, carts, menu, services etc. So that means you are learning programming without abstract concepts like it is written in the books or in other courses. You learn domain specific terminology and during the lessons we investigate specific extracts from code that can give you clear vision how you can apply the knowledge in real life.
Almost all training courses on Udemy has auto-generated captions. And you know how auto-generated captions looks like – words are written incorrectly, timeline is not perfect. We saw feedbacks of international students who would like to have captions properly written. And also taking into account you are learning new domain it is nice to understand how new words spelled to be able to google them if needed.
For this course tutor create Java program (you would be able to do the same after you complete the course 🙂 ) which helps to create perfect captions that can help you a lot in your education. We are not using auto-generated captions. We use scripts written by tutor and which is mapped against the video.
