But first things first👇.

Why become a Software Developer🤔?

Software development is one of the jobs that — depending on your responsibilities and how good you are at your job — generally come with good pay.
Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a device. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or that control networks.

Start with Why❔❓

Why do you want to pursue a career in Technology?
Why do you want to become a Software Developer?
Why do you want to improve your skillset as a Professional Programmer?
Why did you choose to read my blog in the first place?
You can have any sort of answer to these questions! But, my point is that you must write it down in a piece of paper👇

“I want to become a Software Developer because ________________________________________________________”
And this will help you in a lot of ways. Whenever you feel down, less motivated, or confused on the way while you’re learning, you’ll know why you decided the first place.

Okay, in this post I will discuss the Software Developer path for now. So are you ready to explore in-depth about the Software Developer learning path? I’m so much excited to share it with you.😉

👩‍💻👩‍🎓Software Developer Track👨‍💻👨‍🎓

Software Development is a booming industry and offers a career path with endless progression, opportunities, and depending on how good you are, decent pay.
It’s not painting or design, but programming is a highly creative profession. Any time you set out to write a program you’re creating something new!
In this learning path, you’ll learn Programming through Java and various Frameworks for you to become a Job Ready Software Developer. Let’s start with some Facts!👇

Facts about Java programming language💡

Did you know that getting a Java Certification drastically increases your chances of landing a Software Developer job? Here’s why👇.

  • Java is one of the only programming languages that have an accredited certification curriculum.
  • Java is the most widely used programming language that every company, whether they be small companies or big tech giant companies like Google, Amazon, etc.
  • In one year Java gets downloaded one billion times.
  • Java is used by 95% of the enterprises as their primary language. It is much more than C and other languages.
  • Today, Java rationally runs on more than 1 billion as the Android operating system of Google uses Java APIs.
  • A Java developer’s median salary is $90,000.00 upwards. It pays to be a Java developer.

So, let’s explore the courses available in this learning path.

Getting Started with Java

This course delivers everything you need to know about Java, and it’s essential if you’re going for a job interview or have a Java Project that needs your best performance.
You’ll master the most in-demand and critical components for becoming a core Java developer: Java Basics, Object Orientation Basics, Control Flow, Looping, File Processing, Eclipse Software(the widely used developer environment for Java Projects), Exception Handling, and a Practical project(Car Dealership🚗).

Master Practical Java Development

Here, you’ll be mastering the collections framework, java generics, multithreading, Lamda expressions, JDBC API for working with a MySQL database. There’s also a Practical Project — Stock Market Data Processor(This is a fun one😉 and a real-world software project) you’ll build from scratch.
At the end of this course, you’ll learn things you can take to your interview and be confident on the first day of the job👨‍💼👩‍💼!

Master Object-Oriented Design in Java

After you’ve learned the two courses above, you’ll have Java as a tool to develop various programs. But, the real craftsmanship lies in Software Design and nowadays Object-Oriented Design is widely adopted in the Industry for building Enterprise level applications and is being used in many Open Source Software Projects like Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Andriod, and much more.
So to take your programming skills to the next level in this course, you’ll how to improve Software Design by properly applying object-orientation through practicing Hands-On Exercises. Here you’ll discover the 5 core Design principles summarized by an acronym called ‘SOLID’. And learn the best practices used in the Industry.

Master Spring Framework 5 + Boot 2 + Spring Web

Spring is the most popular framework in the Java Ecosystem with over 90% of Enterprise applications built using Spring. So, you can’t call yourself a complete Java Developer without having experience developing using the Spring Framework.

In this course, you’ll be walking through step by step on how to build a real-world production-ready Spring web app from scratch. During the process, you’ll learn all the important concepts you need to build a Project Management tool for Managers to assign projects, tasks, and deadlines with Data visualizations. (This project is an awesome workplace project😇)
Here’s what you’ll learn in this course👇
Core Spring Concepts, Spring Boot 2, Spring MVC, Spring AOP (Aspect Oriented Programming), Spring Security, Maven, Spring Data CRUD Repositories, Thymeleaf with JS, RESTFul Web Services API, Hibernate, Spring Annotations, Using the Command Line to run Spring Boot Apps, Property Configurations, PostgreSQL Database, Integration Testing, Deploying our Spring Application to the AWS EC2 Server, Containerization using Docker.

Practical Data Structures and Algorithms

Now, if I had to pick the most important topic in software development, that would be Data Structures and Algorithms. It’s the fundamental tool that every programmer needs to know!
The better you get with these tools the more confident a programmer you’ll become. This will be a huge leap forward in your programming journey and it’ll certainly pave the way for a successful programming career.

So the topics covered in this course are important Data structures like
Stacks, Queues, Linked lists, Trees, and Heaps. And then you’ll also learn some of the most powerful algorithms for sorting, searching, and graph traversal that has revolutionized the field of computing.
Throughout this course, things are practical and provided with real-life examples of how all of these Data Structures and Algorithms work. And when & where they can be applied to write efficient computer programs.

Learn Java Through Coding Puzzles & Eliminate Code Fear

Surprisingly a large fraction of applicants, even those with masters’ degrees and PhDs in computer science, fail during interviews when asked to carry out basic programming tasks such as iterate over a loop and print numbers from 1–10 or solve the common fizz buzz problem.
They could have an impressive academic background as well as experience in various technologies and software projects, but when posed with an interesting programming problem, their code falls apart. The fact is, you don’t need a college education to become a good programmer.
Alt Text
Simply there is a big divide between people who can program and those that can’t. The difference has to do with mastering the fundamental building blocks of programming like string manipulation, lists, loops, logic, and recursion. Think of these as the tools a programmer can use to solve problems and you’ll get an opportunity to cover these fundamental topics in this course.
So, this course offers a systematic and structured way for you to acquire that practice using only a subset of the java language without getting sidetracked in other areas of software development. Every concept comes with a coding challenge, which you’ll try solving on your own before going over the solution in detail.

Up and Running with JQuery

Acquire the most in-demand skills needed for web-development and become an industry-ready jQuery professional. According to W3 Techs usage statistics, jQuery is the most widely used Javascript library in the world.
jQuery has become the backbone for all modern web frameworks like Angular js, Node js, and Bootstrap. jQuery is an essential library to do anything useful in a web project on time!
Alt Text
Anyone with a little bit of CSS and HTML knowledge can get up and running quickly with jQuery and acquire in-demand skills such as DOM Traversal and Manipulation, Event handling, and Ajax. This course is full of practical assignments to test your knowledge with detailed solutions so that you can master the content.

Practical Design Patterns in Java

As you were introduced to some OOP Design patterns in the Master Object-Oriented Design course(mentioned above) such as the Template Method Pattern and the Strategy Pattern.
Alt Text
In this course, you’ll cover some of the most popular design patterns used in the industry that you’re likely to stumble upon during an interview such as builder, dependency injection, observer, factory, and singleton all with practice assignments along the way so that it sticks!
