Intermediate/Advanced Java

  • Overview

    This is a fast-paced course suitable for developers with some previous experience in working with Java and Object-Oriented (OO) programming. The course can also be delivered to developers experienced in other OO languages (Python, C++, C#) but with limited Java exposure, as well as used as an advanced Java course for more experienced developers. There are numerous optional parts allowing you to tailor the coverage to your group. This course covers far more than an introductory course, including important topics such as UML and Design Patterns, and using composition vs. inheritance, which are all key to creating well-structured OO systems. After these important areas, it moves on to advanced Java topics such as inner classes, reflection, writing generic classes, and functional programming with lambdas and streams. It teaches a number of useful techniques that enhance productivity and good system design – which may otherwise take Java developers years to absorb on their own. The course concludes with build tools and logging.
