Basic Java 8 and OO Programming for Developers New to OO (TT2120-J8)

This course provides hands-on Java 8 training for developers who have little or no prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C, COBOL, and 4GL. You will gain the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs, using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance, and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development. Special emphasis is placed on object oriented concepts and best practices.

In addition, you will explore new features in Java 9 and Java 10, including the Java Modular System and Local Variable Type Inference. You will leave this course able to participate in projects that are still on Java 8, while also ready to move onto projects using Java 10
