Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- There are a few things you should know before getting started with this course. This course builds on another course of mine, Up and Running with Java available here at Lynda.com. If you're new to Java, you should take the time to watch that course first, before proceeding with this one. You should also be familiar with the basic principles of programming such as defining variables, assigning data types, creating functions and methods, and using assignment statements. If you are not, I suggest watching Foundations of Programming Fundamentals with Simon Allardice, which is also available here at Lynda.com.
Finally, you will need an IDE, or an integrated development environment. In Up and Running with Java, I walk through downloading and installing NetBeans an open source tool. If you do not already have an IDE ready to go, make sure to install one before continuing.
