A New Kind of Java Tutorial is Almost Ready

During the last six months I had a pet project for Wiley Publishing. I “ve been writing a new Java tutorial, which teach Java programming in a little bit different style than traditional books. The title of the book is “Java Programming 24-Hour Trainer “. I can almost hear the voices, “Yeah, yeah, yeah hellip;Yet another promise to teach me Java in no time. How about teaching me Java in 24 minutes? ”

This is not to state that you can learn the software covered in this book within 24 hours of studying. This is about having a trainer that “s with you 24 hours a day. This book is a set of short chapters with minimum amount of theory but with an instructional DVD, with screencasts recorded by yours truly. There is a screencast for each lesson except the last one.

This relatively small 500-page book consists of 38 lessons and covers both Core Java and Java EE 6. Each lesson is from 10 to 15 pages long so you won “t even have time to fall asleep. Each screencast is from 10 to 15 minute long so you won “t have time to get bored. At the end of this lesson is an assignment to complete. In this book I use Eclipse IDE and GlassFish v3 is the application server that I like.

Just look at these thirty eight lesson titles and give me a good reason why you shouldn “t be pre-ordering this book. Know Java already? Doesn “t really matter. I thought I knew it too before I started writing this book. Now I know it better. It “ll help the newbie “s to learn and seasoned Java programmers to refresh their knowledge, especially when it “s time to make a career move. These are the lesson titles:
