A thorough look at the collection classes in java.util.** in Java.

What you'll learn Is this live event for you? Schedule Java programmers typically use only very few collection classes for all of their work. Often they chose inappropriate ones. In this course, we will look at what each collection costs and when you should use which one. Some of the questions will we answer include: Which is the best Collection to use in Java? When do you need to employ ConcurrentSkipListSet? What is the computational time complexity of WeakHashMap?

What you’ll learn and how you can apply it Java has an overwhelming number of interfaces and classes in the java.util.** packages. In this course you will learn what they are and when to use which. Is ArrayList better than LinkedList? What is the difference in space complexity between the two classes? Choosing the correct collection can make our code more succinct. For example, the new List.of() syntax in Java 9 is better at creating immutable lists. By looking at hashing closely, we can learn how to write hashing functions that produce a 3x performance improvement for HashMap and ConcurrentHashMap. We learn when to use which concurrent classes and which to avoid. This live event is for you because… Junior and intermediate Java programmers wanting to understand collections better. Advanced programmers who want to acquire additional skills. Prerequisites Attendees should be familiar with basic Java code, but a CS degree is not assumed Should know at least Java 6. We are covering all relevant collection classes up until Java 11. Knowledge of streams and lambdas not necessary. Course Set-up

Please install the following before the class begins: - JDK 11 or later - IntelliJ 2020.2 or later - Git

Further set-up instructions will be provided at the start of the class.
