In this article we will see the pre-requisites for learning the Java programming language and also see the steps for getting started with the Java programming language. Learning Java is time consuming task for new comers in programming. But if have prior knowledge of C or C++ then you can learn Java fast. Java is fully object oriented programming just like C++, but Java made programming much simpler by easy syntax and automatic garbage collection. Java is also platform independent programming language which makes is portable across platform. Developers are using Java at very large scale for developing enterprise applications.
In this article you will learn about the necessary prerequisites for getting started with Java and learning all the concepts of Java programming language. Here are the prerequisites for learning Java.
In a nutshell you must have knowledge of computer and the basics of programming. If you don't have computer knowledge then first learn how to use computer, use the terminal and shell of computer. Usually almost all the people have these skills. So, after learning the computer skills you should learn about the working of software, what is a software, how software works and then learn what is programming language etc.. After learning all these you will be position of staring with the Java programming language on our website we have 1000s of tutorials of Java programming language which will help you in learning it step by step.
If you are from the computer science filed and you know the basics of C++ or any other Object Oriented Programming language then learning Java will be much easier for you. Check our section Java Programming tutorials to get started with Java.
This is the first question that will come into your mind if you don't have any programming experience in want to learn Java for making career in software development field. If you don't have any programming experience then it will take a little time (4-5 days) to understand the basics of software programming. After understanding the way computer program works and the methodology of developing software applications, you can start learning Java from scratch. You can also join training course in your area or join our Java online training course for learning Java fast and with ease.
Once you decided to learn Java then the next question is to how to go about learning Java? To learn Java you should start from beginning. The first step is to find out why we should learn Java and what can be done with the Java programming language? Check the following pages to learn in detail:
