New to coding? Learn Java through Angie Jones' TestAutomationU

Are you a software tester who is new to coding? Don't know where to start?

Angie Jones has released a new Java Programming course on her Test Automation University.


The Java course uses the OpenJDK General Availability release of Java 11.

The OpenJDK, the Open Java Development Kit is a free and open-source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). (Get the OpenJDK FAQ).

Since I am using Windows, how I installed it:
  • Download from JDK.Java.Net/Archive/ Java version 11.0.2 LTS version.
  • Extract the Zip File to C:\Program Files\Java, creating a jdk-11 folder. 
  • Set the PATH and JAVA_HOME according to this StackOverflow answer
  • Downloaded and Installed IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition, setting it up with Java 11.0.2. 
I am loving the course! Angie sprinkled her fun and her energy throughout the course.

Here are a few tips taking the course:

  • Expand the course to cover the left side of your monitor, with your IDE covering the right hand side of your monitor. 
  • When Angie goes over code, type what she types, and execute when she executes.
  • Do the outside exercises Angie recommends. 
Passively watching Angie type code will not allow you to learn. Only through you practicing the material will allow things to sink in. 

Happy Testing!
