Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jim Wilson. Welcome to my course, Java Fundamentals: The Java Language. I'm president of JW Hedgehog, Inc., and I've had the good fortune to have been a professional software developer now for more than 30 years. Did you know that Java is the most sought after programming language skill among software developers? Java is supported on everything from smartphones to servers to many of the special purpose devices that make up the Internet of Things. In addition to being important to software developers, a recent survey listed Java as one of the five most important skills for data scientists, those folks who work their way through all of that big data. In this course, we're going to teach you everything you need to know to get started working in the Java programming language. So the major topics we cover include setting up your Java development environment, language constructs and control flow; classes, class inheritance, and interfaces; exceptions and error handling; creating and using Java packages. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to begin working in any of the many environments that rely on the Java programming language. This is a beginner course and therefore makes no assumptions on prior programming experience. I hope you'll join me as we learn Java programming with the course, Java Fundamentals: The Java Language, at Pluralsight.
