Welcome Programmers


Java Programming Tutorials and Lessons






Welcome to this new Java tutorial. I hope you like it and learn to program in Java really fast.

Very soon I will also include some Tutorials and Lessons about C++.



I have decided to start this blog as a way to reinforce what I have learned through the years and share with other people the knowledge. Learning Java is the best way to begin in the Object Oriented Programming world, since it is very intuitive and somehow easy to learn.

If you are wondering why learning Java is an important matter you can go ahead and check this article about the Top 10 Programming Languages and the Top 10 Programming Languages to keep you employed. Java is one of the most used programming languages for enterprise custom-application development, and one of the easiest to dive into the object-oriented-programming.

Finally take a look at this graph:
Programming Language Popularity
These are normalized results taken from several 
different result sets featured onLangPop.com

With Java you can also create fast and useful applications for yourself or anyone who needs a specific task to be automatized. I have used Java to create some cool stuff from small games to time-saving applications.

Now here you can find the lessons created until now. I will leave this post on top of the blog so you can continue with the lesson you left the last time:

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter to get the latest updates.

-Java Tutorial & Lesson 1 - Getting Started

Set up the required components to start programming in Java, including the Java Development Kit (JDK) and the Eclipse IDE.


-Java Tutorial & Lesson 2 - Setting up a Project on Eclipse

Create a Java project to start using the infinite possibilities of the Eclipse IDE for Java.


-Java Tutorial & Lesson 3 - Writing the first program: Hello World!

Say Hello with these simple steps and create your first Java program.


-Java Tutorial & Lesson 4 - Understanding Variables and Data Types

Learn about storing information with certain variables depending on the type of that information and then learn how to use it. Some examples are included in this and almost all the following posts.


-Java Tutorial & Lesson 5 - Understanding Methods and Attributes

Create the first methods to group functions that you will reuse in the future. Attributes are very useful for these kind of global functions.
Let your program make the right decision when confronted with a set of possibilities.

Please feel free to comment and ask if you have any questions, your feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hello, I would definitely recommend it since, personally, I consider it the easiest and fastest way to dive into the Object-Oriented-Programming, which is the tendency of the programming nowadays.

  10. Great introduction; I've been looking to get into Java a bit more recently after I started learning basic HTML and CSS.
    That's probably kiddy's toys compared to these though.

  16. Universities are "teaching" Java.
    My coursework is in Java, it's terribly clunky with no real benefit I can tell other than it runs on other Operating Systems.

    C++ & C# ftw.
