  • Welcome

    - Hi, I'm Kathryn Hodge, and welcome to Nailing the Java Interview. In this course, we'll start by looking at some common questions you'll get in Java interviews. We'll also explore concepts that are specific to Java, like the JDK and the JRE. We'll review how we can manipulate strings and how to use some of the most widely known data structures, like arrays, linked lists, and hashmaps in Java. Finally, we'll end the course by talking about some of the essential topics related to object-oriented programming, like abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. Along the way, we will be using real world examples, and you will be challenged with writing programs that include these new topics that we'll be discussing. Let's go ahead and jump right in.
