Multimedia Presentations About Java
By Roman Strobl on III 29, 2006
You will probably agree with me that Java can be nowadays used in many ways and even in applications where the authors of the language wouldn't expect it - e.g. on Mars. It can be used on servers, desktops, mobile devices, but also in real-time devices (did you know that the very first JSR was actually implemented quite recently?). This is definitely a great property of Java, but it brings one disadvantage. Java as a platform is no longer as simple as it used to be, and thus it's quite hard to keep an overview of all new technologies, frameworks, libraries, etc. around Java.
One of the ways how to get an overview about these technologies is to watch multimedia presentations about Java. Well, you need to understand spoken English which can be an issue, in that case you can also watch these presentations with a second goal - to learn English :) I was searching for good sources of presentations recently and found the following ones - if you want to learn more about Java and have a good internet connection, visit these sites:
