Learn Java with Projects (Packt)
Wednesday, 03 January 2024

This book begins by exploring the fundamentals of Java, from its primitive data types through to loops and arrays before moving on to object-oriented programming (OOP). Dr. Seán Kennedy and Maaike van Putten look at key topics such as classes and objects, inheritance, interfaces and lambda expressions.

<ASIN: 1837637180>

Later chapters look at advanced topics including how to create  generic types and streams. Ideas are explained via little projects, which eventually add up to one big project that brings it all together.
