There is no doubt that having Spring Framework skills on your résumé will make you a more employable Java developer.
Spring developers are in high demand and are paid handsomely. However, the framework is huge. That’s because it consists of lots of modules and projects. Learning it can take you months. You will often find that a Java Spring tutorial or training course will focus on parts of the framework that don’t get used that much.
What Spring technologies should you focus on initially?
Many Java spring courses teach you all sorts of things you really don’t need to know when you are starting out.
If you are just starting out with Spring, the areas that will have the biggest impact for you are Spring Core, Spring MVC and Spring Boot 2.
Spring Core is an application framework and inversion of control (ioc) container for the java platform.
Spring MVC, or Spring Web MVC to be more precise is a web framework and provides Model View Controller architecture. It’s built around a DispatcherServlet.
Spring Boot 2.0 is a way to create standalone Spring based Applications that you can just run – so it simplifies the entire process of creating and deploying Spring apps – It can embed databases and do all sorts of configuration automatically.
These three areas are a great place to start – just having these skills will take you a long way. Of course, there is more to learn, but these are the areas to focus on initially.
Why this course is perfect if you want to learn Spring 5 fast.
Firstly, here are some comments about the course.
"Great and deep understanding of Spring in this course. Perfect speed, new technologies, and explanation of every detail. " - Arkadiusz Siry
"Amazing.Very good instructions" - Emmanuel Akono Sarsah
Check the reviews for more - This is one of the highest rated Spring courses on Udemy.
A Java Spring tutorial needs to teach you the core technologies listed above as an absolute minimum. This course will get you up to speed with those technologies.
Having good knowledge of a Java template engine that works with the Spring 5 framework, and a detailed understanding of the build tools (for building single and multi module projects) is highly desirable.
We’ve added comprehensive training for Thymeleaf 4 as well as Maven 3 in the course to give you those skills.
This content is ready for you to get started with today. We’ve been working hard on some final training that we believe will round out a Spring developers skills perfectly.
The final content we are in the process of adding to the course now is for Gradle (another build tool), Spring Data (provides access to persistence stores), JPA (Java Persistence Layer), Hibernate (Object Relational Mapping tool) and database versioning (like source control but for databases).
This content will be provided to existing students in the course for free in the coming weeks.
Bonus Free Spring training
Our original course was released with Spring 4 which was the current version at the time – we created a course around that, using the Eclipse editor.
Unlike other Udemy Spring courses, we completely upgraded the content to Spring 5 – We re-recorded what is effectively a brand new course for Spring 5 using JetBrains award winning IntelliJ IDEA and released if free to existing students.
This older content is still available for you to access after you have been through the brand new training – It’s still useful as some companies still use Spring 4 technology.
What skills do you need to take the course?
This course is for anyone who wants to get into Spring framework programming. We assume you have never used Spring previously.
Any Java Enterprise edition (Java EE) technology requires you to know at least some Java programming. That’s because Java EE is built on top of the Java Standard Edition (Java SE). That’s the regular Java language.
The Spring Framework is built on top of Java EE, and thus you need to have some basic Java programming skills to be able to go through this course.
If you’ve been through at least some of the Java Masterclass on Udemy (created by one of the instructors in this course) or similar Java training, then you will have no problem going through the course.
Who are the instructors?
Your instructors are Tim Buchalka and Goran Lochert. Both have many years of commercial programming experience using the technologies taught in the course.
Tim has been working with Java for 18 years, and Goran is both Spring certified and Oracle Java certified.
They have a number of very successful Udemy courses, including Tim’s Java Masterclass and Goran’s Oracle Java Certification course.
Here’s what’s important. There’re lot of people teaching Spring who are not developers. We’re developers with many years’ experience with JEE and Spring, who also teach Spring.
And you guessed it. Learning Spring the “wrong way” is not only a wasted opportunity, it may harm your career in the long run. If you don’t follow industry best practices when creating Spring projects, you not going to fit in well with a future employer.
Because you are working with career professional developers, you will learn Spring 5 the right way in this course.
What if you have questions?
As if this course wasn’t complete enough, we offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).
This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With our hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.
That’s just one reason why Tim was voted top 10 in the Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the Udemy site.
Student Quotes: “I loved the course because the instructor was really good and explained everything + the support team is really quick in answering our questions the course is worth buying, and i would suggest people to buy it.” –Hamza Shahid
There’s no risk either!
This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let Tim or J-P know and they will refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.
You either end up with Spring framework skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…
You literally can’t lose.

Tim's been a professional software developer for over 35 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career - many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over 790,000 students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal
"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani
"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career" - Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or anyone else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java and a variety of other languages. In addition, he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field. Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today. No previous experience is necessary.

The Learn Programming Academy was created by Tim Buchalka, a software developer with 35 years experience, who is also an instructor on Udemy, with over 957K + students in his courses on Java, Python, Android, C# and the Spring framework.
The Academy’s goal in the next three years, is to teach one million people to learn how to program.
Apart from Tim’s own courses, which are all available here, we are working with the very best teachers, creating courses to teach the essential skills required by developers, at all levels.
One other important philosophy is that our courses are taught by real professionals; software developers with real and substantial experience in the industry, who are also great teachers. All our instructors are experienced, software developers!
Our team is busy creating new courses right now.
Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn how to program for the very first time, or to brush up on your existing skills, or to learn new languages and frameworks, the Academy has you covered.
I’ve been a software developer for over 12 years (10 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.
I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8) and have a lot of experience with Java, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Spring, Spring Boot, Maven, Gradle, and JavaFX.
In addition, I’ve been heavily involved in games development, and frameworks used to create games. I am Unity Certified Programmer.
I am an official developer contributor for LibGDX (a very popular game framework) and am heavily experienced with it, as well as AndEngine, Unity and Unreal engine.
Teaching people and sharing my knowledge is a real passion of mine, and I really enjoy providing information that is not accessible anywhere else.
I create training material that actually teaches you how to program, and how things work! An important distinction, since many tutorials on the Internet, allow you to follow along blindly but fail to explain things so that you can apply this to other projects in the future.
If you want to truly understand how things work, and how to become a programmer, you are in the right place.
