Publisher's Summary

Learn one of the most widely used computer programming languages in existence today: Java. Once you learn how to program in Java you can create software applications that run on servers, desktop computers, tablets, phones, blu-ray players, and more. If you want to ensure your software behaves the same regardless of which operation system it runs on, then Java's "write once, run anywhere" philosophy is for you. Java was designed to be platform independent, allowing you to create applications that run on a variety of operating systems including Windows, Mac, Solaris, and Linux.
Here's what you'll learn:


How to prepare your computer for programming in Java.
Java file-naming conventions.
How to work with various data types including integers, floating point numbers, characters, and booleans.
What variables are and when to use them.
How to perform mathematical operations in Java.
Making decisions in your programs based on comparisons.
Other ways to control the flow of your programs.
How to manipulate textual data.
All about arrays - how to create them, when to use them, and more.
Various ways to perform the same actions in your programs without repeating yourself.
Three types of loops
Object-oriented programming concepts and techniques including classes, modifiers, methods, inheritance, and polymorphism.
Ways to gracefully handle errors that might occur when someone uses your programs.
And more....
Great for beginning programmers or those that are new to the Java language.

A little sloppy on facts, very sloppy in narration

Another audiobook that seems to have fallen over when the author didn't get to check if the final product matched what he actually wrote.

Well, at least, I hope so. I hope the author didn't write inSTAYtiated instead of inSTANtiated. I hope the author didn't open a function declaration with a close parenthesis instead of an open one. I hope the author didn't write "C colon Program Files" and leave out the backslash.

The terminology was also sloppy. In assigning immediate constant values to defined variables, we see that we "stored three variables in the variables," for example. I need the confidence to know that the author is making an effort to use all the correct terminology, and is not, for example, using terms such as 'instruction,' 'command,' 'statement' and 'compiler directive,' or 'declaration' and 'definition,' as if they're interchangeable.

I love the concept. I could see the code in my head. But I kept having to rewind and wonder, "did he really just say 'public static void main CLOSE parenthesis?'" Yes, yes he did. And all that inSTAYtiation was very distracting.

- Amazon Customer "Audible fan since 2003."

Not as an audiobook!

Any additional comments?

This might be a great print book -- I have no idea. It's impossible to listen to. You'll be constantly read code blocks by what sounds like a text-to-voice synthesizer pronouncing every space, every "enter key" (new line), every character of every code block and snippet.

Within 20 minutes the gun will be in your hand and you'll be ready to commit suicide to make it stop.

I wish programming books could be made into audiobooks. This is an epic fail that illustrates why that doesn't seem to work.
