About the Book

About the book

The book is compiled to complement either of the two books, Program Practically with Java (Eclipse IDE Version) or Program Practically with Java (IntelliJ IDEA Version).

The book consists of 100 exercises and accompanying suggested solutions which follow at the end of the 100 exercises. The aim is to help you reinforce your Java programming skills and is part of the 'Build your programming muscle series' by the same author which currently includes the books:



PROGRAM PRACTICALLY WITH - JAVA (Scenarios and Solutions)

The 100 exercises are split into 10 Labs each with 10 exercises and further details of two approaches to using the book labs and exercises is given within the next page. The book exercises are aimed at giving you hands on practical programming experience which is essential if you wish to get the best understanding of the Java language. Hands on experience whilst reading this book is the key to success.



"Life begins at the edge of our comfort zone"


Think about now and believe.

Often the thought of getting started can make us 'frightened' and 'uncomfortable'.

Programming can be rewarding and completing the exercises will enhance your programming skills and how to debug code, as you fix the errors that will inevitably arise.

As you complete the labs and exercises think about learning as a dot. When you start the exercises your Java learning dot is small but as you progress with the exercises, the dot will increase in size. It is not how big the dot becomes that is important but simply that the dot is increasing. No matter how 'expert' someone is at Java there will always be an opportunity to learn more and as such the dot continually gets larger.

About the Author


Gerry currently works as a Senior Technical Trainer for a Forbes 100 company based in the US. Gerry's role includes upskilling and reskilling software engineers who develop business critical software applications, enhancing the programming skills of 'returners' to the workforce and introducing new graduates to the application of software development in the software industry.

His subject expertise has been developed over a forty two year career as a teacher, a lecturer and for the last 11 years, as a technical trainer in a corporate technology environment. Having delivered a range of courses on many varied computer languages and frameworks Gerry is well placed to understand how to teach skills and knowledge to a range of learners. His course delivery has included skilling people in the use of legacy technologies such as COBOL and JCL and more 'modern' technologies such as Java, C#, JavaScript, CSS, Bootstrap, HTML, React, Node.js, Spring Boot, Python, Android and Test Driven Development.

Gerry, through his long career, has mastered teaching difficult concepts in a simple way that makes learning accessible and enjoyable. The textbooks and notes he produces follow the simple philosophy of keeping it simple, while making the instructions detailed. As an educator Gerry has taught other educators how to teach programming to their students and has provided materials that can be used by the teacher or pupil. Gerry is passionate about software development and believes we can all learn to write code if we are patient and understand the basic coding concepts.

Gerry's learning, development and teaching are driven by the current hot topics within the technology industry and for Gerry they are presently based around the:

  • back-end technologies of the Java programming language and incorporating the Spring Framework to create API's
  • front-end technologies of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React because of the high demand for Full Stack Developers and the importance of being an 'all round' developer
