Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Afzaal Ahmad Zeeshan, and welcome to my course, Using Annotations in Java. This course is part of the Pluralsight Java SE 11 Developer Certification path. I am currently working as a developer advocate at Adyen, and I am an author with Pluralsight. Java is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world, and it has proven itself in several domains, such as finance, education, or government. Are you a Java developer yourself? Oracle's Java certifications can help you prove your knowledge of Java programming language and boost your career. In this course, we'll work on getting you the knowledge, practice, and support that you need to learn all about the Java annotations. I will help you learn about the Java annotations, the built‑in ones, and how you can create your own annotations. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how annotations work in Java 11 programs, the built‑in and Java 11‑native annotations that are provided along with the SDK, creating new annotations and configuring their visibility, fields, targets, and so much more. By the end of this course, you'll know all that you need to use Java 11 annotations. You will be able to create new annotations, configure the annotations, and also improve the overall Java application codebase using annotations. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Java 11 SDK and development practices, and you should be willing to learn the Java 11 annotations. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about the Java 11 annotations with the Using Annotations in Java course, at Pluralsight.
