Getting started as a Java developer these days is quite straightforward. There are countless books on the subject, and of course an abundance of online material to study.
Of course, our own site offers a vast array of tutorials and articles to guide you through the language and we genuinely believe that Java Code Geeks offer the best way to learn Java programming.
Things get a bit trickier once you have successfully passed the beginner phase. In order to reach a more advanced level of competence, you will need to reach out and look for targeted resources.
A higher level of sophistication is required and the random tutorials that you find online might not “cut it”.
For this reason, we have created and featured numerous tutorials on our site. You may find them at the following pages:
Additionally, we have created several “Ultimate” tutorials, discussing OOP concepts, popular Java tools and frameworks, and more. Have a look at those too:
- Java 8 Features Tutorial
- Java Annotations Tutorial
- Java Servlet Tutorial
- Java Reflection Tutorial
- Abstraction in Java
- JMeter Tutorial for Load Testing
- JUnit Tutorial for Unit Testing
- JAXB Tutorial for Java XML Binding
On top of the above, to get you prepared for your programming interviews, we have created some great QnA guides:
- 115 Java Interview Questions and Answers
- 69 Spring Interview Questions and Answers
- Multithreading and Concurrency Interview Questions and Answers
- Core Java Interview Questions
- 40 Java Collections Interview Questions and Answers
- Top 100 Java Servlet Questions
For even more high-end training, we would like to suggest our JCG Academy courses. With JCG Academy’s course offerings, you tackle real-world projects built by programming experts. Courses offered are designed to help you master new concepts quickly and effectively.
All courses could be beneficial to the modern age developer, but let’s focus on the Java related ones.
The Advanced Java course is the flagship course that every Java developer should take. This course is designed to help you make the most effective use of Java. It discusses advanced topics, including object creation, concurrency, serialization, reflection and many more. It will guide you through your journey to Java mastery!
Next on, we have the Java Design Patterns course. Design patterns are general reusable solutions to commonly occurring problems within a given context in software design. In this course you will delve into a vast number of Design Patterns and see how those are implemented and utilized in Java. You will understand the reasons why patterns are so important and learn when and how to apply each one of them.
In the new age of multi-core processors, every developer should be competent in concurrent programming. For this reason we created the Java Concurrency Essentials course. In this course, you will dive into the magic of concurrency. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of concurrency and concurrent code and you will learn about concepts like atomicity, synchronization and thread safety. As you advance, the following lessons will deal with the tools you can leverage, such as the Fork/Join framework, the java.util.concurrent JDK package.
Here is the full list of our Courses:
- Advanced Java
- Android UI Design – Basics
- Apache Lucene Fundamentals
- Building web apps with Node.js
- CouchDB – Database for the Web
- Introduction to Nginx
- Java Concurrency Essentials
- Java Design Patterns
- jOOQ – Type safe DB querying
- Mockito Tutorial: Testing and Mocking with Mockito
