Summary: An excellently done, chunked set of Java videos which help people learn both Java as well as learn/review basic object-oriented programming constructs.
Travis from Udemy and YouTube fame going by the moniker of “mybringback” presents a truly excellent, extensive series (or a-la-carte!) of videos for free. The modules are chunked to between 2 and 10 minutes each. They are well categorized and very easy to follow. You could but DO NOT NEED your own local java programming environment to benefit greatly.
- brand new to programming;
- years of writing not-quite OO code.
- DBA looking to expand skill sets vertically
- tired of writing code with punch cards
While I personally had no interest in the eclipse setup or UI coding content, the refresher on packages, interfaces, extends, implements and constructors (including overrides) were key in helping me get my mind around my next project using the AWS Java JDK.
Anyway, check it out. In just a few clicks/minutes you could see if/how it would help you.
