Course Description

 
This course shows Java-6 developers the new language features in Java 7 and Java 8 -- and more importantly illustrates best programming practices as they've been affected by these new features. This is an accelerated course that assumes long experience with earlier versions of Java. Students will leave familiar with various new bits of syntax, and also with an understanding of the exciting new options they have for API design and general-purpose Java 8 coding. For those developers who need to cover more ground, this version of the course can be combined with an earlier version that introduces new features in Java 5 and Java 6: see Course Migrating to Java 6 Version 6.0.
Course Length: 1 Days
Course Tuition: $790 (US)
