Calling all Java learners!

The London Java Community invite you to join them at a practical workshop covering the basic principles of coding with Java with plenty of time to practice and ask questions. There will be one-to-one mentoring from experienced Java developers from within the LJC.

**This workshop continues the agenda started at LJC workshops held in September and October. Don't be put off if you missed the earlier workshops as it’s not too late to get involved. Come along tonight - there will be coding buddies to help you make the most of the evening.**

The agenda for the evening covers:

- Java Basics:

- Primitives, Arrays, Strings, Objects, flow control, Methods, Classes, Packages and keywords and key concepts that you’ll need defined.

- Java Compiler and run-time basics:

- Javac, Java, Hotspot, GC, Classes and Classloader

The workshop is a relaxed and friendly way to develop your coding skills. All questions are welcomed - we are all here to learn together!

Tonight's session will be led by Mike Burton.

Mike has a BSc in Computer Science from Loughborough University. Soon after graduation Mike started his own consultancy business. Since 2004 he has worked with Java, JSF, Hibernate, JBoss Seam, Spring, Swing and related technologies (Maven, Ant, SQL, JDBC...) plus some PHP and Unix/ web-hosting. He has been involved in the OpenJDK and Apache Isis OSS projects and regularly speaks to IT groups and communities.

**You'll need to bring your own laptop to the event. We’ll be emailing out a pdf with the preparation for the event to the GDC list email very soon, so please check your inboxes for details.**
