“There’s a reason this course is a bestseller and highest rated on Udemy...”


Want to go from no previous coding experience -- overwhelmed and confused about where to even start -- to advanced Java 8 and Java 9 programmer, able to seamlessly build creative and exciting programs with confidence?

You wouldn’t be reading this otherwise. Here’s the great news…

You’ve just stumbled upon the most complete, in-depth beginner to advanced Java 8 and Java 9 programming course online. With close to 200,000 students enrolled and tens of thousands of 5 star reviews to date, these comprehensive tutorials cover everything you’ll ever need.

Whether you want to:

- become an in-demand Java developer for exciting software companies

- go freelance and work from home, setting your own schedule and rates

- sharpen your core programming skills to reach the advanced level

- simply bring your own ideas to life with your first profitable program

...this complete Java developer course is exactly what you need, and more. (You’ll even get a certification of completion to add to your arsenal)

What makes this course a bestseller?

Like you, thousands of others were frustrated and fed up with fragmented Youtube tutorials which assume you already know a bunch of stuff, as well as thick, college-like textbooks able to send even the most caffeine-fuelled coder to sleep.

Like you, they were tired of low-quality lessons, poorly explained topics and all-round confusing info presented in the wrong way. That’s why so many find success in this complete Java developer course. It’s designed with simplicity and seamless progression in mind through its HD, comprehensive tutorials.

This course assumes no previous coding experience and takes you from absolute beginner core concepts, like showing you the free tools you need to download and install, to writing your very first Java 8/Java 9 program. We’ll then explore the advanced Java feature set to create awesome programs from the ground up, finishing with your industry recognised certification of completion.

Here’s just some of what you’ll learn

(It’s okay if you don’t understand all this yet, you will in the course)

  • All the essential Java keywords, operators, statements, and expressions needed to fully understand exactly what you’re coding and why - making programming easy to grasp and less frustrating

  • New Java 9 content added - find out how to use cool new Java 9 features like modules!

  • How to safely download and install all necessary coding tools with less time and no frustrating installations or setups

  • Complete chapters on object-oriented programming and the Java API (the protocols and tools for building applications) so you can code for all platforms and derestrict your program’s user base (and potential sales)

  • How to develop powerful Java applications using one of the most powerful Integrated Development Environments on the market, IntelliJ IDEA! - Meaning you can code functional programs easier.  IntelliJ has both a FREE and PAID version, and you can use either in this course.

(Don’t worry if you’re used to using Eclipse, NetBeans or some other IDE. You’re free to use any IDE and still get the most out of this course)

  • How to not only code for desktop platforms, but for Android applications so you can fully utilize this booming mobile marketplace

  • Java know-how for tools such as the Spring framework, popular amongst enterprise-level development (for big clients)

  • Advanced coding tips and tricks used by the world’s most in-demand programmers as well as the top tech companies, so you can create apps not only for yourself, but as a profitable business on your terms if you choose to

And much, much more...


Don't worry if none of that made sense. We’ll go into great detail explaining each and every core concept, programming term, and buzzwords you need to create your exciting Java 9 / Java 8 program.

By the end of this comprehensive course, you’ll master Java programming no matter what level of experience you’re at right now. You’ll understand what you are doing, and why you are doing it. This isn’t a recipe book, you’ll use your own creativity to make unique, intuitive programs.

Not only do these HD videos show you how to become a programmer in great detail, but this course includes a unique challenge feature. Each time a core concept is taught, a video presents a challenge for you to help you understand what you have just learned in a real world scenario.

You’ll go and complete the challenge on your own, then come back and see the answers and explained in detail in the video, allowing you to check your results and identify any areas you need to go back and work on.

This is a proven way to help you understand Java faster and ensure you reach your goal of becoming a Java Developer in record time. Remember doing those old past exam papers in high school or college? It’s the same concept, and it works.

As your instructor, I have over 30 years experience as a software developer and teacher and have been using Java since the year 2000. Yes, over 15 years (I’ve taught students younger than that). Meaning not only can I teach this content with great simplicity, but I can make it fun too!

It’s no surprise my previous students have amazing results...

See what your fellow students have to say:

"If you want to learn Java programming, this is definitely the best place. Tim is a brilliant instructor and he’s quick to answer any questions about programming in Java. Because Tim explains almost all the concepts in a non-technical jargon, this course is perfect for complete beginners or intermediates." - Casper Donnoly, TX, USA

"Great course! Everything is explained simply which is super important for learning programming, he nails it!" - Keith Fox, Colorado, USA

“This course has taught me so much. I’ve gone from newbie to pretty much an expert in no time! Thanks so much Tim :)"  - Via Kim

"Great course. He gives you challenges that really test your knowledge on that section. He’s crystal clear and although some parts are a long, it's only to make sure you get it. This is the best course I’ve taken." - Chukwuebuka

“This Java course is worth every penny and I find Tim to be one of the best instructors here on Udemy.” - Daniel Kubanyi

It’s safe to say my students are thrilled with this course, and more importantly, their results, and you can be too

This complete beginner to advanced Java course will teach you everything you need to know in order to code awesome, profitable projects, and of course, have fun whilst doing it.

Why learn Java compared to other programming languages?

That’s easy.

Java is the most popular programming language in use (TIOBE index) since it’s the only language that works across all computer platforms (and android mobile) without needing to be recompiled (edited) for each one.

You code once, and the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) does all the work in making sure your awesome new programme runs smoothly on any platform, whether Windows, Mac, Linux or Android mobile.

Why is this great?

Not only does this multi-platform language save you countless hours in rewriting code, it means you can make your software available for download, and even for sale on every marketplace -- reaching millions more potential users, both on desktop and mobile!  

Besides, you can’t afford not to know it...

Think about it. If your competition or fellow coders know Java -- the most popular coding language -- and you don’t…

Who has the huge market advantage?

Who will bring your awesome idea to life first, dominating all platforms?

Who will score the big companies and clients?

The one who knows Java inside out of course. You can be that person.

“Learning to program with Java was a no-brainer. It opened a lot of doors”

Don’t get me wrong, this course is not for everyone.

This is not some pushbutton, get rich quick recipe book where you copy other people’s code, make low-quality programs and hope to have contracts thrown at you from deep-pocket clients, or code the most intuitive, creative programs on your own.  

This course takes work. There’s a lot to learn with Java, but with the right guidance, information, tutoring and tests, it doesn’t have to be as difficult or time-intensive as you think.

Who this course is NOT for:

  • People looking to flood the market with poorly functioning programs for a quick sale

  • People just looking to learn the ‘bare minimum', stay at the novice level and hope to succeed with Java

  • People who’re happy with mediocre programs

  • People who put in little effort and aren't motivated to find massive success with Java development

Who this course IS for:

  • People who want to produce the highest-quality, creative software

  • People looking to go from absolute beginner to advanced Java expert

  • People looking for expert knowledge and insider tips used by the world’s best programmers and top companies

  • People looking to make money ONLY developing fully-functioning, intuitive programs - whether corporate, self-employed or freelance

  • People who believe in hard work, and who aren’t afraid to fail before they succeed

If this sounds like you, then you’ll find yourself going from beginner to successful Java programmer with less time, effort and investment than any other resource out there. Not to mention you get a certification of completion with this course, giving you extra credentials over others.

I’m always updating this course with fresh content, too

It’s no secret how technology is advancing at a rapid rate. New, more powerful hardware and software are being released every day, meaning it’s crucial to stay on top with the latest knowledge.

That’s why I’m always adding new, up-to-date content to this course at no extra charge. Buy this course once, and you’ll have lifetime access to it and any future updates (which are on the way as we speak).

Now that Java 9 has rolled out, you won’t have to worry about buying any more courses or thick, heavy books. Simply log in to this course (I’ll send you an email when any updates are added) and you can quickly and easily catch up on any new and exciting releases!

With this complete Java developer course, you’re expertise will never go out of date (or ‘obsolete’ if we want to get nerdy).

I’ll personally answer all your questions

As if this course wasn’t complete enough, I offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).

This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With my hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.

That’s just one reason why I was voted top 10 in the 2015 Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the entire site.  

Student Quote: “Tim is extremely responsive, all questions are dealt with rapidly and the discussion forum is very interactive. Tim is ace!”

There’s no risk either!

This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let me know and I’ll refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.

You either end up with advanced Java skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…

You literally can’t lose.

Tim's mission is simple:  to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer.  Tim does that through his Android, Python, Java and Spring Framework courses.

When Tim started programming over thirty years ago, there was no online video training.  

There was no "easy" way to learn.  The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.

After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or any one else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.

In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java, and a variety of other languages.  In addition he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.

Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.  

Many instructors have no work experience in the field!  Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.

The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.

Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students.   Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.

Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.  

What does all of this mean for you?

You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.

Goran Lochert, Software Engineer | Udemy Instructor | Indie Game Developer

I’ve been a software developer for over 10 years (8 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.

I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8), and have a lot of experience with Java, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Maven, and JavaFX.

In addition, I’ve been heavily involved in games development, and frameworks used to create games.

I am an official developer contributor for LibGDX (a very popular game framework), and am heavily experienced with it, as well as AndEngine, Unity and Unreal engine.

Teaching people and sharing my knowledge is a real passion of mine, and I really enjoy providing information that is not accessible anywhere else. 

I create training material that actually teach you how to program, and how things work!  An important distinction, since many tutorials on the Internet allow you to follow along blindly, but fail to explain things so that you can apply this to other projects in the future.

If you want to truly understand how things work, and how to become a programmer, you are in the right place!
