Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jesper De Jong, and welcome to my course, Creating and Using Arrays for the Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification exam. I'm an independent software developer with many years of Java programming experience. Arrays are an essential feature of Java, which you need to understand as a Java developer, and it's one of the requirements for Oracle's Java certification exam. In this course, we're going to dive into arrays, and you'll learn everything you need to know to be able to tackle this topic during the exam, and you'll be ready to work with arrays in any Java project. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understanding exactly what arrays are and how they work in Java, working with multi‑dimensional arrays, converting between arrays and collections, and understanding how arrays work with subtyping and generics. By the end of this course, you will have a thorough knowledge of arrays. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of the Java programming language. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about arrays with the Creating and Using Arrays course, at Pluralsight.
