Why Learn Java in 2022

Why is Java important today?
Is Java used anymore? Of course! It provides easy coding and high security, enabling the creation of many apps for health, education, and insurance. It is compatible with such tools as Servlets, Hibernate, Spring, Struts, Apache HTTP web server, Apache Tomcat, Thymeleaf, and many others.
Is Java still worth learning in 2022?
As practice shows, some programming languages come and go, but few can beat Java’s popularity and longevity. This tendency will most likely continue throughout 2022 and beyond. If you master Java with at least at a basic degree, you will be able to take part in many interesting projects and develop your portfolio.

This Core Java Specialization is part of a series of programming specializations derived from LearnQuest’s private Java Bootcamps, designed to provide the skill set necessary to be hired as an IT developer using Java in many corporate environments.

To succeed in this specialization, we recommend you understand the fundamentals of software development in any language. LearnQuest offers a beginning programmer specialization that can help you prepare.

In the four courses of this specialization, you’ll quickly master the Java programming language and the packages that constitute its rich set of core libraries. We’ll provide hands-on exercises so you can practice your new skills.

In Course 1, we’ll introduce you to the fundamentals of the Java language.

Course 2 provides a refresher on object-oriented programming and how you can apply OO to Java. We’ll introduce Java classes, instances, and packaging.

By the time you get to course 3, you’ll be ready to go deeper into applying OOP concepts in Java, including inheritance and polymorphism.

In course 4, you’ll learn how to use selected parts of the Java SE Class Library, including Generics, Collections, Java Streams, I/O, Exceptions, Annotations, and Enums.

While we’ll touch on other important Java topics, such as database connectivity, Java EE, and Spring, those topics are covered in greater detail in other LearnQuest Java Specializations.

Excellent course, I learned a lot, and i think that if you follow the lectures, you get a solid base to start programming right away

This course explains some difficult Java language concepts, like Generics, Collections, and Streams. These sections truly allowed reimagining my view of them. The hands-on approach is really helpful. Additionally, the Annotations section explained the real purpose of annotations.

I understood many of these topics already, but I got a much more detailed comprehension.

This course was very good, but the honor content (Studio Ghibli Project) doesn’t work correctly. I think that the third-party API doesn’t available currently, and for that reason, doesn’t possible to receive the data form the third-party API URL endpoint.

For another hand, the fourth part of this specialization was excellent. i learned about asynchronous functions, and many new methods ( fetch, await, then, promises, etc.)

This course covered my expectations.

Noel J. Bergman

Noel J. Bergman has been programming for nearly 45 years, with almost 40 years of experience with Object Programming in many languages. In the 1980s, he wrote a real-time, embedded operating system based on Object-Oriented principles and was a regular magazine contributor on software development topics. In the 1990s, he was instrumental in the creation of NCR’s commercial distributed object programming platform, as well as CORBA and OMG Common Object Services, coined the term “Remote Method Invocation” in the process, and led the team that brought enterprise management to IBM’s object-oriented desktop environment. Noel was an early adopter of Java, co-authored one of the early JavaServer Pages engines, contributed to the JSP and Portlet specifications, has been a contributor on Open Source projects in many languages and domains, was Vice President of the Apache Software Foundation Incubator for nearly a decade, and found time to co-author a book or few. Since the early 2000s, Noel has focused on empowering the next generations of software developers while happily chasing his next generation around the house.
