[1/13] Java Foundations Certification: Basic Syntax, Conditions and Loops

Build a strong foundation of knowledge in Java programming! In this lesson you will learn how to use basic syntax, conditions and loops with many hands-on exercises!

In this free Java Foundations video, we explain some of the fundamental concepts in programming. For example – we will review how to use data types, variables, conditional statements, and loops. Also, we will learn how to debug our code and see where it fails.

Each of these topics is explained with many real-life examples and hands-on exercises. As always, we advise you to pause the video right before solving part of a problem and try to do the exercises on your own first. Then, if you have difficulties, just watch the provided solutions in the video.

*The exercise descriptions are to be found in the PDF document at the end of this post.
