When I started software engineering, I always wanted to code without any configurations, version control or build server configurations. Later, I realized that coding is just one part of software engineering: architectural designs, design patterns and the ability to write reusable and loosely coupled software components are much more important parts of programming.
At the beginning it was quite hard for me to comprehend the role of these technologies, now I know for certain that they are very important as well as useful and can be used on daily basis. So in this course I would like to show you how to separate modules with the help of Maven as well as to use the Java Persistence API for database related operations.
We will learn how to create fancy user interfaces with the Swing framework. At the last section of the course we will wire everything together. In the last chapters you can learn about Java Game Development.
