From now until May 31, readers can enter a drawing for a chance to attend a Introduction to Java for new programmers. The value of this 5-day training is approximately $2,125.
Update: This contest is over. Thank you to everyone who entered!
This Java training course is intended for students without an extensive programming background. It covers most Java syntax elements, concentrating on fundamental and universally useful elements, while providing an overview of many more advanced elements. Students will learn to write useful Java classes, applying Object-Oriented concepts such as inheritance, and create Java programs that work with these classes. The class introduces the concept of objects as one of the first topics, in order that the later concepts are covered with an OO perspective. The class is based on Java 1.5 and 1.6, but most concepts would apply in 1.4 as well.
