Course Overview
Hi everyone. This is Buddha Jyothiprasad. Welcome to my course, JavaFX Playbook: Controls with Data Model. I work as a software developer at Amazon, and my experience has predominantly been in Java and related technologies. This course, JavaFX Playbook: Controls with Data Model, teaches you about some of the complex controls available in JavaFX. The course provides you with all of the fundamental information that you will need to play around with the controls along with techniques that is not taught in basic courses or tutorials. In this course, you're learning about list view, choice box, combo box, table view, and tree view. All of these controls have responsibility of presenting lots of data to the consumer and allowing the consumer to interact with the data. The demos don't just take you through some basic concepts of the controls. The demos do start with very basic concepts and quickly proceed to complex cases like StringConverters, CellFactories, CellValueFactories, PropertyValueFactors, etc that are necessary to accomplish some complex use cases with those controls. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Java and basic JavaFX. Knowing a bit about FXML also helps, but I'll try to take you all through some of the basic concepts very quickly. You should be familiar with using an IDE as well. I'll demonstrating lots of code in IntelliJ IDE, but it's not necessary that you use the same. I hope you join me in the course and learn about wonderful world of JavaFX and its controls.
