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.


#2

No.


#3

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.


#4

So its website based programming.


#5

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


#6

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!

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