Lecture 1 – Course Overview
Java Basics is a computer programming course in which you will learn the absolute minimum information you need if you want lean Java.
Start your programming journey, by learning the essentials of the world’s most popular language to discover that:
- Java can be learnt
- Programming can be rewarding
- You can make a living from this skill
Hi there, my name is Marius from AlefTav Coding and in this article I will provide an overview of my course, Java Basics.
I am a software developer and teacher. In fact, I taught myself to program using Java. Having been a teacher for many years, I am now working full-time as an independent software instructor, making tutorials on programming. My passions are learning, teaching and programming in equal measure. It is my mission to help those who wish to learn programming.
At the end of this short course you will be able to:
- read and write Java code
- develop simple Java applications
- devise basic Java solutions
The Lecture topics of this course are:
- Hello world
- Primitive data types
- Reference data types
- The Scanner class
- The ternary operator
- The stream() method
- Final remarks
This course comprises 15 lectures. Each lecture contains course notes and a coding exercise. This coding exercise is for you to practice what you have learnt.
Lectures start with a brief explanation of the lesson topic. This is followed by working through a problem statement with expected programming output and suggested solution. The lecture ends with a coding exercise for you to complete. In the next lecture I go on to explain the solution.
I designed this course for those who are completely new to computer programming. And you want a gentle introduction to this specialized field of study by:
- studying Java code
- doing coding exercises
- checking your answers against the solutions
If you complete this course you will understand the essentials of Java programming.
My name is Marius from AlefTav Coding. Thank you for reading and see you in the next tutorial.
