ByteQuest’s “Java for Big Data” workshop-style course equips students with the core skills needed for Java development through live, in-person classes. After successfully completing this course, students will be able to understand and debug Java code and be prepared to take the next course in our Big Data Engineering Track.

What will I learn?
In addition to learning the sufficient core Java concepts necessary for Big Data, you will learn how to use the Eclipse IDE for developing and debugging Java code, how to write unit tests, and how to use the GitHub version control system.

Do I need to have prior experience in programming before enrolling?
A basic knowledge of programming and an understanding of object-oriented programming concepts can help. If not, please go through the below tutorials to get some basic understanding. If things are not clear, don’t worry! We will go through these concepts during the class.

Programming Basics:
Basic Programming Concepts 1

Basic Programming Concepts 2

Object-Oriented Programming Basics:

Is this course only for people interested in pursuing a Big Data Engineering career?
Apart from people who would like to pursue a career in Big Data Engineering, anyone who is interested in becoming a hands-on Java developer or in learning how Java code works can enroll in this course.

Can I keep working while taking this course?
Yes, this course is designed for working professionals.

How is the course structured?
This is a workshop-style course, so you learn by doing hands-on coding. Additionally, a take-home assignment will be provided every week to reinforce the concepts taught in the class.

What’s the maximum limit on the number of students enrolled in this course?
At ByteQuest, we believe that keeping class size to a minimum boosts more one-on-one attention, giving students more opportunities to participate and enabling faster learning. Therefore, the class size is limited to 20 students.

What credentials does the instructor have?
Our instructor is an Industry Expert in Java with more than 15 years of experience developing Enterprise Java Applications and is a Sun Certified Java Developer. To get a flavor of the instruction style, watch our Java Bytes, a Java Learning Series with Bite Sized Videos.
