Part 1.1Course introduction

Java is a widely-used programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. It is known for its philosophy of "write once, run anywhere" (WORA), meaning that Java code, once written, can run on any platform that supports Java without the need for recompilation. This is made possible through the use of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which interprets compiled Java bytecode on any compatible device.

Java is an object-oriented language, emphasizing reusable code and modular components. This makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, from small-scale mobile apps to large enterprise systems. It's also known for its strong security features, robustness, and high performance, especially in complex, multi-threaded computing environments.

Over the years, Java has evolved with numerous updates adding modern features. It's widely used in enterprise environments, web servers and mobile app development (especially Android). Java's community support, extensive libraries, and wide usage in various industries make it a foundational language in the world of programming.

This course will teach you the basics as well as some advanced Java code that will help you start on your Java development career.
