Are you a software tester who is new to coding? Don't know where to start?
Angie Jones has released a new Java Programming course on her Test Automation University.
- Java Programming: https://testautomationu.applitools.com/java-programming-course/
The Java course uses the OpenJDK General Availability release of Java 11.
The OpenJDK, the Open Java Development Kit is a free and open-source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). (Get the OpenJDK FAQ).
Since I am using Windows, how I installed it:
- Download from JDK.Java.Net/Archive/ Java version 11.0.2 LTS version.
- Extract the Zip File to C:\Program Files\Java, creating a jdk-11 folder.
- Set the PATH and JAVA_HOME according to this StackOverflow answer.
- Downloaded and Installed IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition, setting it up with Java 11.0.2.
Here are a few tips taking the course:
- Expand the course to cover the left side of your monitor, with your IDE covering the right hand side of your monitor.
- When Angie goes over code, type what she types, and execute when she executes.
- Do the outside exercises Angie recommends.
