Java 8 Essentials for OO Developers is a three-day, fast-paced, quick start to Java 8 training course geared for developers who have prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C++. Throughout the course students learn the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs in Java 8 using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance, and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development. In addition to the normal exercises that are liberally sprinkled throughout the course, there is a case study that covers the entire spectrum from use cases to object-oriented design to implemented classes.

  • Understand not only the fundamentals of the Java language, but also it’s importance, uses, strengths and weaknesses
  • Understand the basics of the Java language and how it relates to OO programming and the Object Model
  • Work with the Java Virtual Machine and understand what functions it performs in running Java applications
  • Learn to use Java multi-threading and exception handling features
  • Understand and use classes, inheritance and polymorphism
  • Work with various simple and complex data constructs as well as fields and methods
  • Understand and use collections and generics
  • Take advantage of the Java tooling that is available with the programming environment being used in the class

Prerequisites

This is an introductory- level Java course, designed for experienced developers who wish to get up and running with Java, or who need to reinforce sound Java coding practices, immediately. Attendees should have a working knowledge of developing OO software applications.
