Great overall course. Instructor does a great job walking you through IDE shortcuts and provides a lot of useful information to use in the future. Using IntelliJ was completely new to me and I was able to get pretty comfortable with the IDE thanks to this course. I primarily used NetBeans and Eclipse before this course.

I was introduced to a new powerful tool that helped me a lot fighting out my mistakes. The exercise about teamwork was the best I've ever done in this track. it really felt like I'm a real programmer.

This has been an enlightening and exciting course. I think it was a great idea to have the IDE exposed to you a little bit later, rather than at the start, so to get you familiar with free hand coding.

This was an excellent introduction to IntelliJ, but the course might need an update soon. IntelliJ was a great choice for this course because it is one of the best IDEs out there. Plus, since Android Studio is based on IntelliJ, what you learn here will also be useful when doing Android development.

It is all good feel about this course using Pro subscription. The content focus is IntelliJ IDE, which is almost new to me, but the content and content level was excellent with optional in depth additional notes. Craig is just an amazingly good instructor and teacher. The set of tools and framework is excellent. So just to say something the Treehouse mobile APP videos could on some occasions be better in auto-zoom-in and auto-zoom out the code lines just being coded/presented, but the current videos is generally OK also on a small mobile screen.

Treehouse's java track is amazing. Craig teaches you important concepts in fun and engaging ways. It is difficult, but worth it. There teacher notes if a student wishes to explore further. I feel like I learned so much more about IDE's by taking this course with Craig than I did taking a similar java course for 1 semester in college.

The course, like all courses that Craig teaches, was great! The last code challenge was frustrating, though. I was able to get the application to work a couple different ways in IntelliJ, but after copying it over to the code challenge, it failed. I eventually just copied someone else's code from the forum into the code challenge to pass...it's not really cheating because I already completed the code challenge two different ways in IntelliJ. If that code challenge could be made to accept more flexible answers, that would be great. Thanks for all that you do, Craig!!

I am a functional software tester, and am trying to learn how to think like a developer. I have been teaching myself how to program using Selenium WebDriver using Java. Learning like this is new to me but I want to make it happen.

Craig does a great job at teaching the basics without boring you! It covers everything you need to know to get started with IntelliJ. He exposes the help features to allow you to continue learning well after you complete the course.

This is a fantastic course in a series of courses which make the best introduction to Java I've ever seen. Once again, Treehouse make the best content, and make it in a pretty giant quantity, with great support, code tasks and fun videos that can be cheesy at times, but never in a bad way.

Craig makes it engaging and worthwhile to learn. Great instructor. Can't wait to take more of his courses. He makes you want to learn it. While some instructors seem to just be reading a script, Craig seems to be talking to you and working through everything with you. He forms that connection that is needed to make it better.

Awesome intro to Intellijidea IDE. Craig gives a lot of useful advices of how to use efficiently the edit, debug, and refactor code. The last exercise was one of the very challenging ones. Short videos, interesting way of presenting the IDE, which makes an awesome combination. No weak points, totally recommend.

Craig is an amazing teacher and the course was fun. I'm really enjoying learning Java on treehouse and I can't imagine a better way of grasping these tough concepts. Nothing but praise for Craig and the lads at Treehouse !

Craig is seriously incredible at explaining concepts in a manner that is easy to grasp for all people. After watching his videos I fell in love with Java and I learned more from the videos than I do from my professor. I would recommend watching these videos to any computer science student before jumping into a class. I have a strong command of the Java language. I wish he would do a little more talk about git.

Very good Material for new to java students. It has a great refresher for those that have done some java programming as well. I really enjoyed the instructor and his energy throughout the course. I hope there will be more advanced subjects coming to the course soon. I would love some great information on multi threaded programming.

Everything is really good. It would be helpful to slow down on a couple of steps (like how to handle TODOs) but that might just be me. I'm not that experienced at this.

Great course, presented well from a solid provider. Highly recommended overview & detail of Java data structures & IDE tools. You will come away from this course with a working knowledge of IDE tools and have implemented & expanded a console-based application.

This is an excellent introduction to the Intellij IDE for Java development. It's the first time I'm using this particular IDE. The assignments were very relevant and many very useful trips were introduced that made me much more productive then I would otherwise have been.
