Thanks for the great replies.Looks like all of them are useful.
Hello people, can anyone help me about the available database developer certifications?Oracle's site is a bit chaotic and I found many options.For example:

Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate Certification
Oracle Database SQL Certified Associate Certification
MySQL 5.6 Developer Certification

Also are there any study guides for these?
Thanks for the reply Alex.The price is fair, I am not much familiar with the concepts of the book (I'm a Java beginner to be honest) but Java EE concepts are really interesting.
Congratulations Jeanne!

No Kathy Sierra though?

I was wondering, since the title of the book is only what's new, is this the book just for people that they are familiar with the previous version of this book or everyone can read it?Also, do you consider this as a good studying material for Java EE Certifications?
Node.js with express is the easiest to use(both set-up and edit) web application framework.I've tried many of them (not a single one in java though) for a project in my current work and it was a joy to work with.

I am not by any meaning a Java expert but I've played a little with Drop Wizard and it's really easy to start with.

Hello

With a ~6 months background in C#, I'm trying to learn Java and I've started following a Udemy Class (Complete Java Masterclass) + reading a book about (Head First Java).Those two materials follow a totally different way and order of teaching which I've found a good way to mix up my studying.After some days, I've reached the concept of getters/setters, which I believe is similar to C#'s get; set;, and I've found some dithyrambs at the  book about this technique and how crucial it is to use it.I've done some research on the internet though and I am a bit confused if it's the best thing to use this technique:

https://www.javaworld.com/article/2073723/core-java/why-getter-and-setter-methods-are-evil.html

According to my limited experience as C# developer, the rule was to use them but i wasn't sure if that was the proper thing to do.So, what's your opinion?

Isn't head first java based on a really old version of Java?

May I ask what is your academic background Aneta?

I think both is the best.Video tutorials are better because they tend to point the most important things at the end of each session.Books are better for exams when even the smallest error is important.

I was wondering if MTA and MCSD are the C# equivalent of JAVA SE OCA and OCP.Microsoft certificates are a bit confusing.
I don't like Perl syntax and I can see why anyone would prefer to learn Perl over Python or even Ruby other than the cult status.
