Bloom Institute of Technology's Backend Development Precourse
Why Learn Java?
Software developers today utilize hundreds of programming languages, but none are as widely used, versatile, or transferrable as Java. Thanks to Java’s many benefits and capabilities, this beginner-friendly programming language has remained in high demand across industries, including small businesses and fortune 500 companies, for over a quarter century.
Java is the foundation of backend development, and is the primary language taught in the Bloom Institute of Technology Backend Development program, which was jointly developed with Amazon. To help ensure you’ll be successful in the full-time Backend program and in the workplace, you’re required to pass our Backend Skills Challenge to be admitted. We’ve designed this precourse with Codecademy to help you prepare to pass the challenge and succeed in the full-time Bloom Institute of Technology Backend program.
In this 25-hour course you’ll begin to learn fundamental programming concepts, including object-oriented programming (OOP) with Java, conditionals, arrays, debugging, and more. You’ll also build 7 Java projects—like a basic calculator—to help you practice your new skills along the way.
