Why learn Java?
Java is an open source, platform independent language. In subsequent years, the language has become the backbone of millions of applications across multiple platforms including Windows, Macintosh and UNIX-based desktops, Android-based mobiles, embedded systems, and enterprise solutions. According to Oracle (that acquired Sun Microsystems in 2010), Java now runs on more than 3 billion devices. It is good to learn Java not only to become a Java Programmer but also to move to the next level in your career by getting trained in Android or Hadoop.
Android has emerged as one of the best career options. Android developers need to know Java in order to develop applications and games on Android. Similarly, Java is the base for learning Big Data and Hadoop. You can master Hadoop and its fundamentals, only if you are well familiar with Java. Prospects are bright for you with knowledge of programming languages like Java. As of 2018, there are a lot of opportunities for Java programmers. With a projected growth rate of 19 percent for the 2014-2024 period (according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for all application programming), the career prospects for Java programmers are indeed excellent.

- Java Exception HandlingThis lesson will cover Java Exception handling. Then it will explain the difference between runtime and checked exceptions and show you how to use try, catch and finally. It will cover the most common errors you will come across, and will show you how to catch all and ignore individual exceptions.
- Java Classes and OOPsThis lesson will cover the Java fields (class variables) and methods (functions) first, and then it will explain in detail what a private field is. Then it will move on to what it means to overload a method, what a constructor is and how to overload a constructor.
- Java Logic in programmingThis lesson will cover how to make a video game. Although it will be a simple game, it will teach a lot of the logic needed to make your own game. This lesson will teach you about arrays, class fields, class methods, how to set a default value for an array, and a ton of logic.
- Java ArraysThis lesson will cover everything that you would ever want to know about Java Arrays. It will show you how to create arrays, numerous ways to populate them, tricks involving multi-dimensional arrays, the enhanced for loop, Array library methods and more.
- More Java Programming LogicThis lesson will try to teach you the programming logic by writing code which spontaneously comes straight from the instructor's mind. It will continue making a simple game in Java, and specifically, make a method that allows the monsters to move on the game board without landing on each other and blocks them from falling off the board.
- Java ArraylistsThis lesson will introduce Java collection classes. Specifically, it will cover how to use Java ArrayLists. Java ArrayList make it easy to keep track of groups of objects. A Java ArrayList differs from a Java array in that it automatically resizes itself when you add or remove values. Nearly every Java ArrayList method will be covered in this lesson.
- Java LinkedlistsThis lesson will cover Java Linked Lists. The LinkedList class is a collection based on a linked list instead of an array like the ArrayList. They are good when you plan to add and delete items. They are not particularly efficient at providing access based off of index searches though.

It will start teaching OOP design principles using UML. You will learn how to draw polygons on the screen and how to animate them. Above all, it will show you how collision detection works.
- Make video game using Java part 2This lesson is a continuation of making a Java Video Game. You will learn to create the GameFrame class that will animate all of your asteroids. You will redraw the board using threads.
- Make video game using Java part 3In this lesson, you will create object and a keyboard listener. You will use the keyboard listener to move the ship around the screen. It is so easy to add objects randomly to the game you started making here.
- Make video game using Java part 4In this lesson, you will learn to rotate the polygons.
- Java collision detection with polygonsThis lesson will teach you how to create a program that handles Java collision detection with polygons. This is a continuation of the lesson on making a video game. It is surprisingly easy to handle collision detection with polygons. All you have to do is surround all of your polygons with rectangles and a handy-dandy method named intersects handles pretty much everything else.
- Java OOP design principlesThis lesson will focus on Java OOP Design Principles. You will still continue making the game you started, but now you will be creating all of the needed parts with the strong use of encapsulation. The lesson will walk you through the thought process of going from features needed to a finished UML class diagram.
- Make video game using Java part 7This lesson will teach you to turn the mark UML class diagram you designed in the last lesson, into a real class. This class will allow you to fly the mark around the screen at any angle. You will be able to rotate it while maintaining the ship's current direction. It is considered to be a pretty complicated technique that is squeezed into a few lines.
- Make video game using Java part 8In this lesson, you will continue making Java Asteroids game while learning about OOP design principles. In previous lessons, you saw how to make a Java UML class diagram, and then you turned the UML class diagram into a class. Here you will finish up the class so that you can now fly your ship in any direction. You will also be able to keep it on the game board and use lifelike velocity that accelerates.
- Make video game using Java part 9In this lesson, you will again continue to make asteroid Java game and will see how to make your mark shoot. It sounds like a simple concept until you realize the ship is shooting while it is rotating through space at an angle that may not be equal to the direction it is moving.
- Make video game using Java part 10This lesson will show you how to make your mark shoot the torpedos on the screen. As you used good OOP design principles in the last lesson, adding the shooting feature will require very few changes.
- Make video game using Java part 11In this lesson, you will continue with the Java Asteroids game. It will show you how to do a bunch of new things like, how to play sound in a JFrame. It will introduce yet another way to handle collision detection. You will remove items from the screen when they are destroyed. And, a whole bunch more is covered.
