Course Description

You’ve just stumbled upon the most complete, in-depth Java programming course online. With over 480,000 students enrolled and tens of thousands of 5-star reviews to date, these comprehensive java tutorials cover everything you’ll ever need.

Whether you want to:

– build the skills you need to get your first Java programming job

– move to a more senior software developer position

– pass the oracle java certification exam

– or just learn java to be able to create your own java apps quickly.

…this complete Java Masterclass is the course you need to do all of this, and more.

Are you aiming to get your first Java Programming job but struggling to find out what skills employers want and which course will give you those skills?

This course is designed to give you the Java skills you need to get a job as a Java developer.  By the end of the course, you will understand Java extremely well and be able to build your own Java apps and be productive as a software developer.

Lots of students have been successful in getting their first job or promotion after going through the course.

Here is just one example of a student who lost her job and despite having never coded in her life previously, got a full-time software developer position in just a few months after starting this course.  She didn’t even complete the course!

Three months ago I lost my job, came to a turning point in my life, and finally made the drastic decision to completely change course.   I decided to switch career path and go into coding. My husband found and gave me your Complete Java Masterclass at Udemy as a gift, and I wholeheartedly dove into it as a life line. Following your course has been absolutely enjoyable (still working on it, not yet finished), and has been a great way of keeping on course, dedicated and motivated.  Yesterday, three months after starting the course and honestly to my surprise, I received (and accepted!) a job offer as a full-time developer. I wanted to just drop you a line to say thank you for doing this work, for being such a dedicated teacher, and for putting all this knowledge available out there in such an approachable way. It has, literally, been life changing. With gratitude,  Laura”

The course is a whopping 80 hours long.  Perhaps you have looked at the size of the course and are feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of finding time to complete it.   Maybe you are wondering if you need to go through it all?

Firstly, Laura’s story above shows that you do not have to complete the entire course – she was yet to complete the course when she accepted her developer job offer.

Secondly, the course is designed as a one-stop-shop for Java.

The core java material you need to learn java development is covered in the first seven sections (around 14 hours in total).  The Java Basics are covered in those sections. The rest of the course covers intermediate, advanced, and optional material you do not technically need to go through.

For example section 13 is a whopping 10 hours just by itself and is aimed at those students who want to build desktop applications with graphical user interfaces.  JavaFX (which is the technology used in this section) is something that most java developers will rarely or never need to work on.  So you could skip that section entirely.  But if you are one of the few that need to build user interfaces, then the content is there and ready for you.   And there are other sections you can completely avoid if you wish.

If you want to know absolutely everything about Java, then you can go through the entire course if you wish, but it’s not necessary to do so if you are just looking to learn the essential information to get a java developer position.

The reality is that there is a lot of computer languages out there.  It’s in the hundreds.  Why would you choose the Java language?

The number one reason is its popularity.  According to many official websites that track the popularity of languages, Java is either #1 or in the top 3.  Popularity means more companies and their staff are using it, so there are more career opportunities available for you if you are skilled in the language.

The last thing you want to do is pick a language that is not in mainstream use.  Java came out in the 1990s and is still very popular today.

Generally speaking, you would want to learn the very latest version of a computer programming language, but that’s not necessarily the case with Java.

Until recently Java releases were infrequent (one major release in 3 years was common).  Companies were standardized on specific versions of Java.  Right now most companies are still focused on Java 8, which is a relatively old version, dating back to 2015.

Oracle (the owners of Java) are now releasing new versions of Java every six months, and when the new version comes out the old version is no longer supported.

But to cater for most companies who tend to stick to specific versions of Java for a long time, they have marked the current version of Java – Java 11 as LTS – or Long Term Support. That means that they guarantee to support this version for the long term – for a number of years at least.

Companies will stick to versions of Java that are supported in the long term. For career purposes, you should learn the appropriate versions of Java that your future employer will likely be using.  Right now that’s Java 8 and Java 11 (Java 9 and Java 10 have been released and already been marked obsolete and are no longer supported).

The good news is that this course is focused on Java 8, and has recently been updated for Java 11. 

Yes, it will.  Core Java is the fundamental part of the Java JDK (the java development kit) that programmers need to learn to move onto other more advanced technologies.

It’s been a best-seller since it’s release on Udemy, you would be joining over 480,000 students who are already enrolled in the course.

There are well over 100,000 reviews left by students.  It’s rated as the best course to learn Java for beginners.

Like you, thousands of others were frustrated and fed up with fragmented Youtube tutorials or incomplete or outdated courses which assume you already know a bunch of stuff, as well as thick, college-like textbooks able to send even the most caffeine-fuelled coder to sleep.

Like you, they were tired of low-quality lessons, poorly explained topics, and all-round confusing info presented in the wrong way. That’s why so many find success in this complete Java developer course. It’s designed with simplicity and seamless progression in mind through its content.

This course assumes no previous coding experience and takes you from absolute beginner core concepts, like showing you the free tools you need to download and install, to writing your very first Java program.  You will learn the core java skills you need to become employable in around 14 hours, and if you choose to, can take advantage of all the additional content in the course. It’s a one-stop-shop to learn java. If you want to go beyond the core content you can do so at any time.

(It’s okay if you don’t understand all this yet, you will in the course)

  • All the essential Java keywords, operators, statements, and expressions needed to fully understand exactly what you’re coding and why – making programming easy to grasp and less frustrating
  • You will learn the answers to questions like What is a Java class, What is polymorphism and inheritance, and to apply them to your java apps.
  • How to safely download and install all necessary coding tools with less time and no frustrating installations or setups
  • Complete chapters on object-oriented programming and many aspects of the Java API (the protocols and tools for building applications) so you can code for all platforms and derestrict your program’s user base (and potential sales)
  • How to develop powerful Java applications using one of the most powerful Integrated Development Environments on the market, IntelliJ IDEA! – Meaning you can code functional programs easier.  IntelliJ has both a FREE and PAID version, and you can use either in this course.

(Don’t worry if you’re used to using Eclipse, NetBeans, or some other IDE. You’re free to use any IDE and still get the most out of this course)

  • Learn Java to a sufficient level to be a be to transition to core Java technologies like Android development, the Spring framework, Java EE (Enterprise edition) in general as well as and other technologies. In order to progress to these technologies, you need to first learn core Java – the fundamental building blocks.  That’s what this course will help you to achieve.

Don’t worry if none of that made sense. I go into great detail explaining each and every core concept, programming term, and buzzwords you need to create your own Java programs.

This truly is Java for complete beginners.

By the end of this comprehensive course, you’ll master Java programming no matter what level of experience you’re at right now. You’ll understand what you are doing, and why you are doing it. This isn’t a recipe book, you’ll use your own creativity to make unique, intuitive programs.

Not only do these HD videos show you how to become a programmer in great detail, but this course includes a unique challenge feature. Each time a core concept is taught, a video presents a challenge for you to help you understand what you have just learned in a real-world scenario.

You’ll go and complete the challenge on your own, then come back and see the answers which I then explain in detail in a video, allowing you to check your results and identify any areas you need to go back and work on.

This is a proven way to help you understand Java faster and ensure you reach your goal of becoming a Java Developer in record time. Remember doing those old past exam papers in high school or college? It’s the same concept, and it works.

As your instructor, I have over 35 years of experience as a software developer and teacher and have been using Java since the year 2000. Yes, over 18 years (I’ve taught students younger than that). Meaning not only can I teach this content with great simplicity, but I can make it fun too!

It’s no surprise my previous students have amazing results…

“This course was a guiding light in my “Becoming a developer” path from the first step. It helped me become a much more educated developer comparing to my friend who learned to code from trial/error. It’s still a guide for me. every now and then I will come back to this course to learn something new or to improve what I’ve learned somewhere else. A BIG Thanks to “Tim Buchalka” my Master.” – Sina Jz

“I was an absolute beginner when I started this course, and now I can write some good small advanced clean codes. I wrote a code and showed it to a programmer, and he was shocked, he told me that I’m more than ready to start a programming career.” – Amirreza Moeini

“I am taking this class in conjunction with a Java 101 college class. I have learned more in one afternoon of videos from this class than I have in 4 weeks of a college class. Tim actually explains what things are and why they do what they do, as opposed to my college instructor that mainly said “go make a program that does *whatever*” and then I had to figure out a program that would meet those requirements but not actually learning why it worked.” – Stacy Harris

It’s safe to say my students are thrilled with this course, and more importantly, their results, and you can be too

This complete Java course will teach you everything you need to know in order to code awesome, profitable projects,

It’s no secret how technology is advancing at a rapid rate. New, more powerful hardware and software are being released every day, meaning it’s crucial to stay on top with the latest knowledge.

A lot of other courses on Udemy get released once, and never get updated.  Learning an older version of Java can be counterproductive – you could be learning the “old way” of doing things, rather than using current technology.

Make sure you check the last updated date on the page of any course you plan to buy – you will be shocked to see some have not been updated for years. 

That’s why I’m always adding new, up-to-date content to this course at no extra charge. Buy this course once, and you’ll have lifetime access to it and any future updates (which are on the way as we speak).

I’ve continued to do this since the original version of the course came out, and recently have been updating it to Java 11.

With this complete Java Masterclass, you will always have updated, relevant content.

As if this course wasn’t complete enough, I offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).

This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With my hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.

That’s just one reason why I was voted top 10 in the  Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the Udemy site.  

Student Quote: “This course is a great place to ask questions if you have them or find help if you become stuck in areas.” – Blake S.

This course comes with a full 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let me know and I’ll refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.

You either end up with Java skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…

You literally can’t lose.

I liked this course. It gave a thorough coverage of Java. it was helpful to go through the challenges, although some of them were a bit confusing.

Federico Airoldi

Great course. I would suggest to introduce some slides/lessons about the java garbage collector and how it works.
