Where to after Beginners Java Videos

+4 Jean DeZonia · July 28, 2014
Hey everyone, first time posting in this forums. I have been watching Bucky's "Gregs" videos for a while now, and i'm almost done with his beginner videos for java.

What do I do after this? Do i go to the Intermediate videos or do I go to some gaming videos?

My goal is to learn java to the best of my ability and find a job with it, I want to take the OCA Java Associate and Professional certification exams asap, BUT I also want to have some fun with this stuff (make games, especially android games to put on the market)...

Also a little about me, i'm currently pursing my Master's in Management information systems, and I need something to help me get into the IT field, because what the heck is the point of having a master's without any experience!

Anyways, I would love some input and if there is a thread about this already i'm sorry, but I couldn't find one.

Thank you for your help

Jean

I was gonna read Head First java... My finance is currently reading that book, and I was also reading it on the kindle, but stopped because I hate reading off of a screen.

What is your opinion on java certifications? What should i study to get the OCA associate and professional and do those help in finding a job?

I don't think certifications help with programming languages (correct me if I am wrong, please).

Competitions? What do you mean?

Well, I guess after getting java tutorials I think you should try coding your own application ! In this way you can get more depth knowledge on how to with Java . :)

I wasn't looking towards the java certifications to "Learn Java" but to show that I am knowledgeable in Java, allowing employers to at least look at my resume. Otherwise I dont have much to go off of yet when applying for a job.

Eh, I started reading Head First Java. I never really liked how it was organized. There were way too many pictures used as examples. If you want, you could just practice a little more by learning smaller things separately, then go into intermediate.

Kam that is awesome.

You told me exactly what I hoped to hear :)

That is what i was planning, make a portfolio of games and apps that I can hopefully get a decent number of users and use that as my "Java experience"...

Hope that works well for me.

I recomend checking out udemy.com It's a learning website with a lot of subjects, including Java and other computer programming languages. Some courses are free others cost.

Depends on what your interested in doing, after I'm done the beginner series I plan on learning XML on lynda.com (I'd be pretty cool if Bucky did a tutorial on this.) cause I'm planning on making a fairly complex Web App.
