Eclipse and Java for Total Beginners

This free video tutorial will help get you started writing Java programs using Eclipse version 3.3. No prior experience with Eclipse or Java is assumed. The 16 lessons total about 3 1/4 hours and are each between 9 and 14 minutes long. The lessons guide you through a step-by-step process creating a simple "personal lending library" application. Each lesson is fully narrated.

All of the code for the lessons is typed in "real time". This allows the demonstration of many Eclipse Java editor features that speed up coding. Code snapshots as of the end of each lesson are provided in the Tutorial Companion Guide. These allow you to jump in at any lesson and to make sure your code matches the sample code.

Test-driven development is used throughout the lessons, using the JUnit testing facility in Eclipse. The lessons are designed for you to work side-by-side, pausing and rewinding the video as needed. See the Tutorial Companion Guide for more information about the tutorial, or look at the tutorial lesson outlines.

You can view all of the tutorials on Youtube or you can download them at the project download page. Be sure to download the Tutorial Companion Guide (PDF format).

The tutorials use Eclipse version 3.3 (Europa), released June 2007.
