*This path is still in development.
Java is one of the most popular enterprise development languages as well as mobile device development too. It is an open source language that covers a broad spectrum of applications including web, cloud, desktop, and mobile.
This path will take you from the very beginning, with no Java knowledge, all the way to being an expert in the language. Java 17, the latest LTS version of Java, is used for all courses in the path.
First, you will learn about the fundamental concepts and language constructs of the Java language, including object-orientation (OO). Then you will move on to more specific, in-depth coverage of Java 17 and topics that a Java developer will use on a day-to-day basis, including error handling, working with lists and generics, accessing data and working asynchronously. This path also covers fundamentals such as Unit Testing and QA using Java. With these topics understood, you will be able to create and maintain Java applications in your organization.
Finally, with most code-constructs known, you can learn more about best practices to create your next Java application. You’ll learn how to apply SOLID principles, design patterns and how to refactor existing Java code.
After completing this path, you’ll be able to apply this knowledge to create all types of Java projects.
If you want to build a web application, explore the JEE 9 path, as it will contain many topics that teach you how to create a server-side web application. Or if you’re interested in creating a client-side web application, take a look at the Java EE 9 path that integrates with web clients. If your organization wants to expose data over the web for other applications to use, you’ll need to build an API. Creating APIs again powered by Java, is covered in the Java EE 9 path. If you’re looking to apply your gathered Java knowledge to create mobile applications, take a look at the Mobile/Android/Kotlin path.
