Java SE 8 Introduction training course (code: JAVAINTRO)


Our Java training course introduces you to OO Programming with Java language.  We show you that while it is reletively easy to learn the basic syntax, effective use of Java requires understanding of the many features of the language. The new features introduced into Java 8 expand the opportunities offered by Java. The introduction of lambda functions and streams support a functional programming style, as well as the traditional object oriented style and related concepts of Inheritance and the role of interfaces. The mixture of these allows faster, easier  programming, resulting in you being able to develop software that is more flexible and easier to maintain..


IT professionals who are completely new to Java programming or those with elementary skills in Java who need to gain hands-on experience of developing commercial Java applications using the JDK.
