Top 10 Java and Web Development Courses from Udemy in 2024 - Best of Lot

Hello guys, I am sure you all have made your goals and resolutions for this year, like what to learn in 2024. If you haven't, then check out my post 10 Things Java programmers should learn in 2024 for some ideas. If you have already made your goal, then it is time to think about how you are going to achieve them. For example, my top 5 goals in 2024 are to learn Java 17, AWS, Microservices, Spring 5, and Spring Security 5, but how am I going to learn them? Well, I like books and online courses, and that's why I have been searching for some excellent courses on Java, Spring Boot, Microservices, Docker, Web development, and Spring. 

Luckily there are some available in Udemy, and the best part is that they are currently running a New Year Sale event where every single course is priced just $10, Yes you heard it right, only $10.99, even for a course whose original price is $200.

Well, this is not the first time though they ran such a sale, they ran one during Black Friday, when I went on a shopping spree and bought 20 courses in one go. Today also I have purchased a couple of classes on Machine learning and Data Science.

I think this is an excellent opportunity for Java developers to upgrade their skills and turn out their new year goals into action; hence, I have compiled some of the best courses for Java and Web developers.

Even though I have already bought more than 30 courses from Udemy in the last couple of months, I have only included 10 of the best ones, which I think is essential for Java developers. Btw, if you find a suitable course which you want to share with us, feel free to do so.

10 Java and Web Development Courses from Udemy in 2024

Anyway, here is my list of some of the best courses for Java and Web developers from Udemy. This includes courses on Java, Spring 5, Spring Boot 2, Git, Maven, Jenkins, Docker, REST API, Microservice, and general web development stuff. This should be a good list of skills to learn and update in 2024.

1. The Complete Java Masterclass

First thing first, if you are a professional Java developer, you got to learn recent Java versions like Java 9, 10, and 11. Even if you don't use Jigsaw, there are some API enhancement that is worth looking in Java 9 like creating a map or list in JDK 17 is much more comfortable with new factory methods introduced in JDK 9. 

This course was recently updated to cover Java 17 and provides a good overview of all new features of JDK 9, JDK 10, JDK 11, and Java 17.

2. Spring Framework 6: Beginner to Guru

This is one of the most modern and comprehensive Spring Framework courses available on Spring framework 5 and Spring Boot 2 at this moment. The author, John Thompson, is an authority on Spring world, previously worked for Pivotal customers as a Spring Source consultant, and has also spoken at Spring One. 

If you are serious about learning new features of Spring 5 and Spring 6 like. Reactive Programming, then this is the right course for you. Thousands of people have already joined this course on Udemy.

3. Docker for Java Developers

As the title suggests, this course is specially designed for Java developers. You will learn how you can use Docker to supercharge your enterprise Java Development. You can take this course once you have a basic understanding of what is Docker and what value it provides in terms of software development and deployment. 

If you can learn just one tool in 2024, I would suggest you learn Docker. It's a game-changing tool as it makes the deployment of Microservices seamless and it's very easy to scale using Kubernetes.

4. Master Microservice with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud

Developing RESTful web services and Microservice is fun, and the combination of Spring Boot, Spring Web MVC, Spring Web Services, and JPA makes it even more fun. Microservices is also the demand of today's technology world which is going cloud-native. 

Both Cloud Computing and Microservices go hand in hand as Clouds naturally because your application is composed of many, loosely-coupled small services that can run anywhere in the cloud. In this course, you will learn how to implement microservices using Spring Cloud.

This course is divided into two parts: RESTful web services and Microservices. In the first part of the course, you will learn the basics of RESTful web services, and the second part is focused on Microservices.

5. Jenkins, From Zero To Hero: Become a DevOps Jenkins Master

If you want to take your DevOps skills to the next level in 2024, this is the right course for you. In this course, you will learn how to build an automated continuous integration pipeline with Jenkins. You will also understand the fundamental concepts of continuous inspection, continuous integration, and continuous deployment, and the difference between them. 

6.  Git Complete: The definitive, step-by-step guide to Git

Git is the most popular version control system at this moment. It's different from SVN or CVS in the sense that it's a distributed version control system, which means you can commit changes on your local repository, and then you can push that to Github or remote repository at once.

This course provides a complete overview of Git, including installation, branching, and merging, downloading projects from Github, Rebasing, Stashing, working with Git bash on the command line, and Tagging essential milestones.

7. Maven Crash Course

This is for Java developers who don't know Maven, one of the essential skills for Java Programmers. Ideally, you should have learned it earlier, but if you haven't, it's not too late. You can learn Maven using this Crash course in a couple of days.

Since Maven is the most popular build tool for Java projects and also makes dependency management more comfortable, I strongly recommend every Java developer to learn Maven in 2024, if they haven't.

8. Docker Mastery: The Complete Toolset From a Docker Captain

Docker is another essential skill for Java developers to learn in 2024. Docker provides a new way of development and deployment for your mobile and web apps. In the current world of distributed development and implementation, its increasingly become an essential skill.

This course not only introduces the big picture of Docker but also provides a complete overview of different Docker tools.

9. Reactive Programming with Spring Framework 5

Another excellent and advanced course by John Thompson, which particularly focuses on reactive programming with Spring 5. This course provides hands-on experience with building a Reactive application to stream 'movie events' leveraging the Reactive data types and WebFlux - both are new features of Spring Framework 5.

10. The Web Developer Bootcamp

This is a general course on Web development that teaches you all the new libraries and frameworks required to build a modern web application, like HTML, CSS, JS, Node, and More. This is also one of the most popular web development courses from Udemy with more than 600K students. 

The great thing about this course is that Colt has finally updated the whole course with 500+ new recorded videos to cover everything in web development. If you are thinking of learning web development in 2024, this course is a good starting point.

Hi Paul,

What would be your suggestion for someone who understand quite well Java syntax or academics (as you call it) but have no idea about this modern way of writing back-end code that is Java+Spring+JPA, DAO/DTO... where there are almost no if/while and everything is done by concatenating calls to methods?

I was exposed to that kind of Java at my previous company (not as a developer) and I was unable to understand it nor write it but I'd like to learn it to a point where I could be able to do code reviews and even write some code with it
