Effective Java,Third Edition, took me by surprise. After having read the second edition, I figured I would only read the new items, but I was so wrong! It sucked my right back in and I ended up rereading the entire book. I rediscovered all the details I forgot, connected the content with my personal experiences from about a decade of Java development, and had a lot of fun trying to find angles Josh hadn't covered.
This inspired me to start a YouTube series on Effective Java, which this video kicks off. Come with me on a journey that goes back to the roots and makes us experts in the Java core language!
