This course teaches everything a Java developer needs to know when starting to work with Java 11: It introduces new language features, new and updated APIs, JVM improvements, and the essentials of the Java module system (for a deeper dive, there's a separate course). All of these topics are taught with theoretical introductions, practical exercises, and usage recommendations.
Beyond introducing everything new in Java 9 to 11, this course also teaches how to overcome migration challenges and discusses the six-month release cadence as well as licensing/support of JVM distributions.
- Java developers who want to start using Java 11
- Good Java 8 skills, particularly a solid understanding of lambdas
- 1-2 days
