Intermediate Java 8 Programming
Accelebrate's Intermediate Java 8 Programming training course prepares graduates of our Beginning Java Programming class (and those with equivalent expertise) for the next level of Java programming.
This course goes well beyond the basics of Java and OO programming to cover UML, Design Patterns basics, and using composition vs. inheritance. Attendees learn advanced Java topics such as inner classes, the reflection API, and functional programming with lambdas and streams. Finally, students learn how to use useful tools for day-to-day programming such as JUnit, build tools, and logging frameworks.
