There are hundreds of books for learning  Java, I can recommend you these two:

1. Core Java by  Cay S. Horstmann, 12th edition.

He is a great technical writer, he has been here in coderanch promoting his books.

2.  https://math.hws.edu/javanotes/

It is a well written book, free, the author David Eck, also a great college teacher.

Dear  Jeremy Kubica,


I am starting to work with geo data and geo analysis and came across k-nearest neighbor algorithm, I am pretty sure your book will prove useful, I have already bought it, it is already fully available.


Can you explain what inspired you to write on data structures -the fun way- ?


How did you choose the structures given the broad choice ?


Thanks.

Dear James McDaniels,

P5.js es a specialized library for designers who want to add a programming tool to their creative skill set. Needless to say, to master P5.js, you should have a sound knowledge of javascript and computer graphics, etc. Sadly  to say, this forum might not be the right one to ask such a concrete question.

You can try  P5.js  for guidance.


Thanks.  
Dear Sir,

Are big players in technology testing their Web APIs, ?

Does Open Api enforce testing ?

Thanks.

Learning by yourself is a valid option but you might miss the whole point. Instead I recommend to try any of the -free- courses that MOOC platforms offer, try Mit Courseware, Coursera, Udacity, Edx or Kaggle, just to name a few. Having said it, be ready to deal with overwhelming workload, do not feel intimidated by Linear Algebra, Statistics and Probabilities, Graph Theory, Python, ML Algorithms, Scala, R Language, standard tools, applications, data sets and ... last but not least subject areas -biodata, genoma, artificial vision....-   Some people claim that not all this stuff is necessary, I disagree.

Please share with us what decisions you make, what you would start with, etc.

Disclaimer: I have no any relationship with before mentioned MOOC platforms other than a learner. I advise you to do your own research.





Is there any web service to search books by ISBN ? I expect it to be free at least for some (up to) queries per day.

Thanks.

Jython is just an implementation of Python ported to Java. Not sured about which versions of Python ported or tool support.

Better stick to the original Python, good resources and good tool support.

Dear Sir,


I read the table of contents of your book, very promising, very interesting, it immediately caught my attention.

Which criteria did you use to chose the topics ?


Thanks.

Dear Sir,


What book do you recommend reading first, ML BootCamp or Mastering Java for Data Science ?

Is there any dependency between them ?


Thanks.
Dear Madam,


How often does Pivotal change exam version and content ?

Does your book cover the latest version of the exam ?


Thanks.

Thanks mate! Right now I'm reading "Code Complete 2", as it's the most recommended book for computer scientists and even the first 40 pages already show me a bit more about the big picture.



What book to recommend ? There are hundreds of books that claim to be written to beginners... again just to add my cents you can check Core Java Volume I-Fundamentals (11th Edition) by Cay S. Horstmann, this author has been invited to coderanch several times, you can check the archives to get an idea, in my opinion a great technical writer.

Dear Pablo Aguirre,

There is no unique answer to the question "What Should I Build as a Beginner".  I somehow stick to the recommendations given by Les Morgan, anyway in the mean time IMHO I recomend the courses given by Robert Sedgewick  in Coursera. Forget about the age and follow your instinct, you are in the right path.

Dear Sir,

Object oriented programming has been there since old times (do you remember Simula ?) , nevertheless new ideas make their inroads into OOP.

What reasons encourage you to write this book ?

Thanks.
Dear Sir,

In what programming language are the examples in the book written ?

Thanks.
