Course Overview
Hi there. My name is Maaike van Putten, and welcome to my course, Java Basics, which is part of the Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification 1Z0‑808, also known OCAJP 8. I'm a software developer and trainer at Bright Boost. In this course, we will be dealing with the ultimate basics of Java. Java is a wonderful, multipurpose programming language that you definitely won't regret starting with. It is an incredibly popular programming language, and the reason for this can be found in some of the most fundamental concepts of Java. During this course, you'll learn about these fundamental concepts, such as the JVM, object‑oriented programming, platform independency, and multithreading. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include what is Java and what are the features of Java, executing Java applications, packages and classes, and also variables and scope. By the end of this course, you should be comfortable with the basics of Java and capable of answering questions in the exam covering these basics. It is also a great foundation for starting your Java journey with, even if you don't plan on taking the exam. Before beginning this course, you don't really need to have experience with Java or coding, but it definitely helps to understand what programming is and if you know the ultimate basics of using the command line. Let me help you with the fundamental concepts of Java with my Java Basics course here, at Pluralsight.
