Skills Required for a Java Developer

What are the skills required for Java Developer?


As everyone is not made for programming as such like a java developer you must need some skills to become a Java Developer or good Java Developer.
Following are the skills that may help you become a better Java Developer.
If you to start java you must read all the point that I mention below.

About Java:
I know some of you think that “what about java”. If you not know about java and also what java can do in daily life or what you can do with the java programming? First you have to take a deep look on what java programming can do and then you path is clear that Java is your dream language or not. So now it is clear that Java is your required language. Now you must also know about the different IDE’s (Integrated Development Environment) which you are working in to develop your apps or your programs. There are different IDE’s used for different purposes like Netbeans for desktop apps and Android Studio for an Android Apps.


Do you First Learn C then Java?
There are most of the institutions that will ask you to first learn C and then Java. So you know about the basics of how the programming language works. But in my opinion Java can be your first language. If you learn C it is better for you but not waste time on C just start learning Java so you will get better understanding on Java mechanism works and also OO principles (Object Oriented). As java is Object Oriented Programming Language.

Basic OO Concepts:
Now some of you are not clear about the OO principles and also the concepts of Java programming. I must say this is the most important skill that you need to become a Java Developer. Just like other programming languages you must learn if-else statements, loops etc. But in Java you should have to learn more like inheritance that parent and child relationship. Exception Handling for better app development. Interfaces also some class concepts you need to become a java developer.

What Platform You Want?
So now you have a question that (what platform?). Platform is really depending upon your interest. There are different platforms you have to develop different apps for different operating system or also you can go for servers. Like Android Studio for Android Apps. Netbeans for desktop Apps. JavaScript for websites and Also Java Enterprise Edition that you can learn in the future.
Knowledge About Databases:
For getting better in java programming or you want to be a java developer. You should have to know about the Databases. How the database works. There different DBMS (Database Management Systems) where you save your data and retrieve your data using java application. Database is only need when you want to save the data from your front end java application. Java also have the file handling but that was not the good approach you save your data in it.

Bonus Points:
All the above points are the skills you need to become the Java Developer. Now if you want to become better in Java Programming you must practice those skills you make you better in your Java programming. Practice every single day to better know how to fix the bugs or error in your programs. Must know about the data structures that Java Programming have it. You are more flexible in your Coding.

“Programmers must practice if they want to Shine in the Future!”
