Biography

Devaka started programming with Pascal and BASIC languages when he was 13, and he has been coding with Java since 2003. Devaka got his bachelor's in computer science from the University of Moratuwa, and currently holds SCJP, SCWCD, and SCBCD certifications. He is mostly known as the author of ExamLab , which is a popular exam simulator for SCJP certification.
When he is not wrangling with his JavaEE and enterprise projects, he likes to play with sneaky web application security stuff.

    How is the learning going?

    At the beginning you and your CodeGym alter ego (it’s automaton called Amigo) have a zero level. You start to read the first lectures and solve the first tasks. For each task you get dark matter points, which can be spent on opening new lectures and moving to the next level. Thus, you pump your Java knowledge and Amigo levels from zero to 40.

    You can solve the problems through the CodeGym website or right in IntelliJ IDEA. You solve the task, and submit it for review. If all is well, you get the dark matter points. If not, the virtual platform sends you hints as to what might be wrong. If you can't solve the problem, just skip it and return later. Or click on the help button, this will take you to a page where students and specialists help each other with Java-related questions.


    What type of tasks does CodeGym have?

    CodeGym contains Core Java programming tasks of varying complexity

  • Easy tasks for learning and consolidating theory
  • Tasks for ingenuity and finding a solution
  • Fixing bugs in the code
  • Refactoring
  • Adding new features
  • Projects (e.g. ATM emulator, link shortener, job aggregator),
  • Game projects (simple shooter, arkanoid and snake clones, sokoban and others)
