I'll be teaching my Java 17 certification prep class next week (May 20-22) 😀 -- if you've been using Java a bit and think it might make your job more interesting, strengthen your prospects of keeping your job, or finding a new one, to know Java in more depth (regardless of whether you're planning to take the certification exam), perhaps you would like to join me?

In the class we'll dive into the topics that most often catch folks out in the exam--and pretty much by definition, those are the topics that are most likely to improve your overall skill level in Java.

A word of caution, this is *not* a "getting starting with Java" class. Sure, some aspects, like "how to use var, and what's the only thing it can do that you can't do some other way" are simple (at least superficially), but many are quite deep and tend to be overlooked even by quite long-time practitioners.

The class is intended to be as interactive as possible (given the web-based training format, and the limited options for interaction). Questions are invited at any time, and I present many quiz questions (although loosely, sometimes very loosely, modeled on exam questions). These questions are used to illustrate points, help you understand your weaknesses and strengths, and get you used to answering this type of question. Most people "who expressed a preference" (as the marketing people say!) have indicated that these work really well for building learning, and keeping things interesting.

If you would like to join me (and remember that O'Reilly offers a brief "free-trial" period if you're new to the platform), you can find the registration information here:


Hope to see you there!
