- The introduction lessons are comprehensive. Every step is explained and easy to follow.
- Algorithm-focused Java sets this course apart from most introductory courses.
- Example-based lectures take Java out of the abstract and focus on real-world applications.
- Course spends minimal time on object-oriented programming concepts and lessons.
- Second half of the course moves much faster than the first half and can be difficult for complete beginners to follow.
- There is no course transcript. Having one would add clarity to the overall course and help some students learn faster and more effectively.
After working as a software developer and contractor for over 14 years for a whole bunch of companies including CSC, Proquest, SPSS and AT&T in the UK and Netherlands, I decided to work full-time as a private software trainer. After spending four years in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary and a year in Berlin, I now live in my home town of Derby, UK.
