Java – ambitious start. Create a real app!
Yet another course about Java syntax and object-oriented programming? NOT EVEN A BIT! I assume you already know Java syntax, therefore I start with the most important tools for building real Java applications. Not Swing or an another unneeded thing.
I teach what I missed at the beginning of my professional career – how to configure the app, how to plug external libraries, how to run everything. I show Maven with Maven Central Repository, Jetty, HttpServlet, Spring and Hibernate.
I remember hard times figuring out what and where is hidden in the big codebase. I didn’t understand multitier architecture back then. I focus on it here as well as on REST and CRUD operations. I follow best practices and point out things from the software craftmanship, like SOLID.
I also know that Java is not always the case. That’s why I show more, like some pieces of SQL and front-end worlds.
