In Get Programming with Java, experienced instructor Peggy Fisher makes learning the Java programming language fast, easy, and fun! Using short, focused lessons with quick-check questions, “try this” exercises that let you practice what you’ve learned, and six capstone projects, you’ll quickly master the basics of object-oriented programming in Java!

About the Technology

Easy to use and platform-independent, Java is the programming language behind millions of networked applications, with an estimated 3 billion devices currently running Java apps. Stable, robust, and ubiquitous, Java has been the trusted solution for large-scale enterprise applications since its inception more than twenty years ago. It’s also the tool of choice for Android apps, web servers, games, and embedded programs for small devices.

About the book

Get Programming with Java teaches you to write programs in the Java language, starting from the most basic building blocks. In her relatable and personable style, author Peggy Fisher begins by helping you set up a Java programming environment on your computer. Once you’re up and running, you’ll start working with the foundations of Java and object-oriented programming, including classes and objects. Always practical and clear, this carefully-designed tutorial swaps the usual heavy-handed theory for concrete examples and easy-to-follow scenarios.

And you’ll use everything you learn immediately! Quick, concise lessons and “try this” exercises give you practical, hands-on experience with inheritance, file processing, collections, design patterns, and other vital Java principles. At the end of each set of lessons you’ll complete a capstone project to lock in what you’ve learned. This fun guide with a course-like feel will have you programming in Java quickly, confidently, and proficiently.
