Course Overview
Hi, this is Tod Gentille. I'm in sunny Southern California. I don't know where you are, but I know you're watching the Eclipse Guided Tour For Java on Pluralsight. And whether you're new to Eclipse or you've been using it for years, I'm going to show you some tricks you didn't know existed, so stick around. Investing some time in learning just how powerful the Eclipse IDE is will pay you dividends for years to come. While this course will focus on using Eclipse in Java, Eclipse supports many other languages, an that's an advantage Eclipse has over many other Java IDEs. The extensible nature of Eclipse means it can easily keep up and adapt to all the latest development tool changes. A large community behind Eclipse means you get regular updates and support for all the latest tools. Now in this course, we're going to explore the details of the workbench itself, editing tips, customizing Eclipse, how to navigate and search, and how to type less and code more with the powerful refactoring code generation and other tools hiding inside Eclipse. By the end of this course, you'll feel at home in Eclipse, be more productive, laugh out loud when someone asks you what's this quick access feature all about, and you'll know the most important techniques for exploring and discovering more on your own. Let me be your docent, and let's get started on our Eclipse Guided Tour For Java.
