IBL News | New York

Udacity announced the Java Developer Nanodegree program last week. It will be a four-month (5-10 hours/week) online class and will cost $1,436 or $399 per month. As a prerequisite, intermediate programming is required.

After twenty years, Java skills remain in demand by top employers for their back-end development.

“Java remains the de-facto language for building enterprise-scale applications,” noted Aravindan Ramkumar, a Java Developer Nanodegree program instructor and Software Engineer at Netflix.

Taught by practitioners from the industry, this program will cover the full range of skills to build, test, and deploy web applications using Java. It will also include real-world projects, such as:

  • Project 1: Create a web-based chat room app using Spring Boot and WebSocket components.
  • Project 2: Develop the back-end system for a car website. Use Java APIs and frameworks to integrate different services using different communication styles.
  • Project 3: Build a data store for customer reviews. Build the polyglot persistence layer for a REST API that will support the customer reviews section of a product page in an e-commerce application.
  • Project 4: Implement authorization for an e-commerce application. Use Jenkins to build a CI/CD pipeline to deploy code to production.
Students will be assigned a personal mentor, will be able to get a custom learning plan and access to career coaching sessions and interview prep advice.
