My name is Ananth and I have been working with the Java programming language for 15 years - all of my professional life.
I am trying to prepare a comprehensive core Java training material that I can use in order to train folks – I am generally discharged with giving out Java training for all the new joinees in our project.
Given that I love teaching people Java and I love the language itself preparing good material would take too long and that is something that I do not have time for. So as starting point do you know of any material that is
not copyrighted? I would like to use that as the building block to get where I want. I would like to tap into the vast resource that is code ranch, so please do help me if you can.
As for what I want to cover - it would be core Java with the gamut of topics ranging from the very basics (for beginners who dont know much about the Java programming language but have a basic idea in programming) to say up till collections. I am not looking to cover networking, rmi (probably irrelevant in the context of today's scene!) and such. Just intend to build an extremely strong foundation.
I already did see the oracle tutorials - it is however quite a process to convert that into a strong training material. I can use TIJ though, will keep that in mind.
Also I would like something that spells out the new things from 1.7 and so on, that would be a nice thing to have as a end of training thingie
I hope I was clear, else I can give you specific topics.
Google java 7 new features and you get such a list.
It sounds like you want to build a training course without much work. That isn't going to be easy to create "without much work." That's why people sell books and training courses on the matter. I think you'd be best off having your student's buy a book. Then you have a $50 guide to Java and can teach from it. Still cheaper than a course from a training center.
Well Jeanne, I can understand that conclusion.
All I meant was that if the material needs too much work on it, I cannot devote the requisite amount of time to make it into something that I envision. If the material that I start out with has a good structure then it would take me far less time to edit it into something that I want. That is why I was asking for non-copyrighted material, apologies for giving out such an impression.
