Top 10 UNIX and Linux System Programming Books- Best of Lot, Must Read

I have been sharing programming books in this blog for a long time, starting with core Java; I moved to other related technology, like Spring, Design patterns, Data Structure and Algorithms, etc. Today, I am going to share some of the best UNIX and Linux programming books. The list contains some of the must-read UNIX books from great writers like Sir Richard. Stevens, Sir Brain Kernighan, who has contributed so much to the development of the UNIX operating system. Most of the books on this list are timeless,  classic, and don't age with time, much like UNIX, which is around for the last 40 years, and I am sure it will be around for the next 40 years, or maybe forever.

Top 5 Books to Learn Scala and Functional Programming - Best of Lot

Scala is one of the relatively new programming languages which encompasses best practices of many programming languages. The biggest strength of Scala is that it provides a beautiful blend of object-oriented programming and Functional programming. So, you can not only construct elegant class hierarchies for maximum code reuse and extensibility, but you can also implement their behavior using higher-order functions. It has a concise syntax with less ceremony, which also makes it ideal for scripting but doesn't underestimate its power. Like Java, Scala has also used for mission-critical applications by technical giants like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Intel.

How to Enroll on Spring Professional Certification (VMware EDU-1202) and Schedule Exam

So, you have been preparing for Spring certification for quite a sometime, and now you feel you are ready to take the exam, and it's time to buy the Spring certification voucher and schedule your exam. In this article, I'll show you how to buy the Spring certification voucher online. But, before purchasing a voucher, I would like to remind you that the Spring certification (VMware EDU-1202) voucher is only valid for 90 days, after that it will expire. So, it's best to buy the voucher only if you are ready for the exam i.e. you have gone through several Spring Mock tests and practice tests given in Spring study guides and you are consistently scoring over 80% on them.

Do you Need to Pass OCAJP before taking OCPJP - Core Java Certification from Oracle

Even though we now have Java 11 certification, I know many Java developers who are going for Java certification like Java SE 8 Programmer 1 and 2, also known as OCAJP 8 and OCPJP 8 with exam code 1Z0-808 and 1Z0-809. Even though Oracle split Java certification into 2 after acquiring Sun Microsystem in 2010, there is still confusion among Java developers whether they need to pass just one OCAJP exam or both OCAJP and OCPJP exam to become a certified Java developer. Well, The short answer is Yes, if you want to become a Java certified engineer then you need to pass both OCAJP and OCPJP, but the long answer depends upon your situation, e.g. whether you hold any previous Java certification or not, which we'll discuss in the second section.

The OCAJP 1Z0-808 - Best Books and Mock Exams for Java 8 OCA Certification

From the last couple of months, I have been helping a few developers to prepare for Java 8 associate certification with exam code 1Z0-808, also known as OCAJP 8. From my experience, both for preparing for Sun certification and helping other developers to get Java certified, I can say that two keys to be successful in Oracle Java SE certification are choosing an excellent study guide/course and buying one or two top quality mock exam simulators. When I say success, it doesn't mean just passing the exam but scoring above 90% because passing score 65% is not very difficult to achieve and anybody can pass OCAJP 8 by just a couple of month of practice but to score 90% and above is not that easy, you need to prepare and prepare hard.

Whether getting Java certified will help them to earn a better salary? or after becoming Java certified from Oracle will help them to get a Job. In this article, we will see what the benefits of getting Java certified are. I know higher income, better job prospects, and a better chance of promotion is at the top of the benefits of becoming a certified Java professional, but this certification provides much more value than that. Apart from all those tangible benefits, the most important thing is that you learn Java better, which help you everywhere like in your day job as well as on interviews.

Top 10 Java 11 Certification Mock Tests and Practice Tests [4 Free OCPJP 11 Sample Questions]

The latest Java certification is now out, the Java 11 Certification. Ever since Java 9 and Java10 were out, programmers were speculating that what will happen to Java certification now? Will, there is, be a new Java 9 certification or Java 10 certification? Will there be a new Java certification every 6 months, following the Java SE release cycle? Well, Thankfully, nothing of that sort happened; a new Java certification every six months would have been a crazy idea, not just for students and programmers but also to all the parties involved, including Oracle itself.  Now the big question is what has been changed in Java 11 certification, and should you go for OCAJP 8 or OCAJP 11 certification?

How to share your Programming Articles on Javarevisited for more Exposure

Hello, Friends,
I have been writing Java articles for a long time and one thing I have learned from that experience is that learning makes you a better Programmer and Software developer. It's also one of the important tips I have shared on how to become a better programmer article long back. It seems many people like that and contacted me about that but their main difficulty was that after writing one or two articles they get frustrated because no one was reading it. Well, I can understand but it takes a lot of time and effort to build a following. I am fortunate and really grateful that Java community has given me so much love and that's why I have decided to do my bit to promote and encourage every new Java programmer/writer/blogger to the best I can.
