About the Book
This is first Book in the series
Intention of this Book is to quickly get you started using Spring Boot to develop Web Applications.
Book covers basic functionalities like: Controllers, Endpoints, Entities, DTOs, Services, Repositories.
The core of this Book are standalone tutorials that explain different functionalities of Spring Boot.
Each tutorial contains minimum amount of code needed to explain specific functionality.
And also minimum amount of encompassing text that explains related theory and different parts of the code.
This approach allows students to grasp presented concepts in a very fast and efficient manner.
Full code, which can also be downloaded from GitHub, prevents any time being wasted trying to make the code work.
Simple examples allow for full understanding of the functionality without any unnecessary distractions.
Where needed tutorials are preceded by chapters focusing on theoretical background.
This way reader can fully understand functionalities explained in the subsequent chapters.
But such chapters are in minority and of secondary importance because the main focus is on practical applications.
Book contains demo Applications that show how to combine functionalities covered in previous tutorials. More complex Application "Authors & Books" is broken into multiple steps showing how to add additional functionalities at each step.
About the Author
"Things are only as complicated as they are badly explained"
Proper documentation is essential to avoid struggle and frustration when working with simple things that only seem complicated by not being properly documented and explained.
WHAT KIND OF TUTORIALS?
"Working example is worth thousand words"
Just like the picture is worth thousand words the same goes for the working example. Documentation in the form of working examples is proved to be the fastest and the most effective way of transferring knowledge. Sometimes an example is all you need to get the things done. And if there are some accompanying comments that explain what is going on even better. This approach is used in this book. This results in fast learning and the ability to apply tutorials when you need them in the spirit of Just In Time Support.
I wish you rapid learning!
