Learn Java Over The Summer
By Sowmya Kannan-Oracle on Jul 18, 2013
Hello Students! Hope you are enjoying your summer vacation! Summer trips are done, and I bet you've asked your parents the question they dread most - "I am bored. What do I do now?" :-)
If you are looking for ways to get the brain's juices flowing or just getting a head start on a high school AP computer science course, Java Tutorials are a great resource!
The following learning paths are perfect for students in middle school or high school.
Get set, go!
See the trails mentioned next for information about installing an IDE, learning the basics, and writing code with the help of code examples.
- Getting Started – An introduction to Java technology and lessons on installing Java development software and using it to create a simple program.
- Learning the Java Language – Lessons describing essential concepts such as classes, objects, inheritance, datatypes, conditions, loops, control flow, and more. You can skip over the generics lesson at the beginning and come back to it later after you feel comfortable with the language.
- Essential Java Classes – Lessons on exceptions, basic input/output, concurrency, regular expressions, and the platform environment.
