Getting Started with Java
Everything you need to know about setting up your local development environment
I recently purchased a new laptop and thought to myself, this would be a great time to show others how I setup my machine for Java development, and that is how this course was born.
I want to make sure I am very upfront about who this course is for and who it isn't for. If you are an experienced Java developer this course probably isn't for you. If you are brand new to programming or brand new to the Java language this course is for you.
When I started out writing Java I always got confused with all the Acronyms in the language. What is the difference between the JRE and the JDK, what is the JVM and what is an SDK. We will answer all of these questions and more.
My hope for you is that this course will give you a peek into the world of Java as you begin your journey. You might not use everything in this course right away but if they come up in conversations at school or with coworkers you will know exactly what they are talking about.
I LOVE the Java programming language and hope that I can make your entry into this wonder language an easy one.
I hope you are excited to take this journey with me and get your Java development environment setup. When you complete this course, you are going to be ready to start your journey into learning the Java programming language.
Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio. I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.
I have been writing software for over 18+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently have over 30,000 students.
When I am not writing software, I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
