Overview

In arenas ranging from enterprise development to Android app programming to game development, Java remains one of the world's most popular programming languages. Sams Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours helps Java beginners gain true mastery over the new Java 8.

In this book's straightforward, step-by-step approach, each lesson builds on everything that's come before, helping readers learn Java's core features and techniques from the ground up. Friendly, accessible, and conversational, this book offers a practical grounding in the language, without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating.

Coverage includes: learning programming basics; working with data and objects; programming graphical user interfaces; creating interactive web programs; handling errors; writing Internet and mobile apps; and much more.

The bonus chapter will cover how to create Minecraft mods with Java. Readers will be able to use Java code to write plugins that customize and extend the addictive and ingenious multi-player world building game, using the programming skills attained in the book. Minecraft is motivating thousands of young people to learn Java so they can impress their friends (and themselves) by introducing new items, blocks and mobs -- or even changing the gameplay itself. Because there are so many different ways to add mods to the game, it can be a daunting task for an avid Minecraft player to get started. This chapter will simplify that process and enable the reader to create at least two real mods -- not just a "Hello World" example. The tutorial is being developed with the author's 14-year-old son Eli, an expert Minecraft player who taught himself the Lua programming language just to use the Computer block in the game.
