Opinions on Coursera's Object Oriented Java Programming Specialization by UCSD?

Here's a link to the speicalization.

I'm a fresh UB electrical engineering graduate and I realized that I liked coding in my senior year, when I built a sweet Mario-like game in VHDL on an FPGA. My aim is to get a full-time job in coding, preferably ASAP. Despite being an EE grad, I don't want to code in VHDL C/C++ for many reasons, one being that I very much prefer Java to them.

I've completed the first course in the specialization (Java OOP) in two weeks and I'm loving it so far. Planning to start doing personal projects soon (maybe after the second course (data structures)?).

I want to know if it's worth going through the whole specialization in order to get a job. It'd be awesome if someone could lay out a track to get a job and how long it would take. Also, what are currently the most in demand frameworks/skills right now?(BTW, I'm also doing Andrew Ng's Machine Learning course on Coursera and the AWS Solution's Architect certfication)

You can review for CSE 11 using Coursera's specialization in Object Oriented Programming in Java Specialization. Developed by UCSD faculty.

Coursera has a number of specializations, for example here. You don't have to pay, and you can continue with more intermediate courses once you finish these...

If you are in lack of money, I would seriously consider an online (NOT for-profit) school that as least has some accreditation. Something like Western Governor's University in which tuition is quite low: just know YOU are going to have to put in extra work to get the job as college degrees are generally just checkbox list for the HR.


If you don't have that time commitment, I would seriously consider self studying Intro to Programming/Object Oriented like: https://www.coursera.org/specializations/object-oriented-programming#courses

Then working on side projects/studying for interviews/whatever AND then trying out bootcamps: make sure ahead of time that the bootcamp is actually useful. Ask the bootcamp to show (if it doesn't show --> worthless bootcamp) results of past graduates, talk to past graduates in the bootcamp program, and see what companies are willing to interview the people in the bootcamp program and be the top student in that bootcamp (period).

Hope you the best.

Honestly you've been exposed to the material so you should be fine.

That being said, there are some courses on Coursera.

Btw, I recommend this playlist for learning about Object-Oriented Design.
