Mastering Java

Mastering Java

A deeper dive into software development with Java

About the Book

Today's life is fulfilled with computers and software: Using a personal computer, this might be obvious, but regardless weather you use a mobile phone, a modern television or any smart device, internally all these devices are powered by a CPU and software. Whilst the CPU is just a part of the hardware (the things you can touch), the software determines the behavior.

Visiting the seaside might be wonderful. But it you dive into the water, you'll recognize a seemingly different world. If you dive deeper this world changes again and might uncover hidden treasure like extraordinary creatures, wrecks or sunken worlds. Programming is a challenging task. You've learned the basics so far and optionally you have used Java. Now its time to dive deeper and enhance your software development skills. For example you'll leave the simple path of sequential programming for introducing concurrency. Beside practical tasks, you'll learn theoretical background. Step by step you will enhance your knowledge.

This might be a cheap book. You may change the recommended price down to nine US$. Or pay whatever you want. I'm writing this book in my spare time. Maybe that's crazy, cause I could earn much by programming, but I like to teach people. Thus I would be lucky, if you pay the recommended price.

I would be proud, if you learn a lot with the assistance of me and my books. Any feedback is appreciated.

This is a living book. Published first in a very incomplete (almost empty) state, I'm going to add or update content irregular. Once purchased, you are able to download all future updates without extra charge. Follow me on that exiting track,

If you want to start with software development and Java basics, I'll recommend this book's sibling: Beginning Java.

if you prefer C# as language of your choice, then take a look at Mastering C#.

Enjoy reading and stay tuned!
