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)
