Does FCC Teach Java?


Just curious - I’ve taken a major interest in the Java language, and have been making a text game for the fun of it, but I was just curious if FCC taught this. I enjoy it a lot and would love to further my knowledge in it.

If not, could you lead me to somewhere that does? I’ve already done codecademy.




No. FCC teaches JavaScript (including jQuery and React on the front end and Express/Node on the back end). It also teaches HTML, CSS, and a couple of useful libraries.


So its website based programming.


Web based, yes, but more focused on web apps than websites per se.


If you’re already making a game with Java and want to continue, just continue driving forward!

My main book recommendation is Effective Java. It’s not a “teaching” book, but discusses best practices across the whole spectrum of writing Java. Fantastic resource once you’re relatively comfortable with the basics.

For more tutorial/learning style resources, there are some good series on Udacity.


I really appreciate it!


If you are looking for a friendly community for Java beginners is a good fit for that.

They have a set of tutorials that ramps up beginners to become competent


You can checkout Udacity. I’ve done a few of their programs and it’s free if you don’t care about the Nanodegree.
