Hey there,

I need some suggestions on which resources students can rely except university courses. Some of them want to prepare before studying and get the basics at least. So if you are just a newbie in software development and consider making a new career step there should be online alternatives to try.

Does anyone have such an experience? I don't compare academic studies and online learning but they can coexist.
Any ideas are welcome.

"If you already know how to program well in another language then learning to program in java should be ""easier"". However, learning any new skill takes time and effort in spite of all the ""Learn X in 21 days"" books available. If you don't already know how to program then it becomes exponentially more difficult. You probably couldn't learn to play the piano (certainly not anything even moderately difficult) in a short time. Don't expect programming to be any different.

They say practice makes perfect. In my experience it is even more true that malpractice makes malperfect. Unless you first learn the basics of good design you will likely develop bad habits that will just get reinforced the more you code. Learn the basics before you try anything major.

Since you are a beginner I would recommend starting learning java with a structured course like or something similar."
