Curious: Question for those of you who have jobs doing java
I am a bit curious about java jobs. Those of you that do java coding for a living what kind of programs are you writing daily and such? just a bit curious as to what kind of stuff you do every day and what is required for your job.
also one other question if someone is looking for a career in java programming is the SCJP certification a good place to start or is there a better route?
thanks for taking some time to satisfy my curiousity :D
Re: Curious: Question for those of you who have jobs doing java
I'd like to answer the second question (because I'm going to take the exam in a couple of weeks). First of all it is now known as OCPJP (since the certification comes from Oracle.) and refer this. That should give you a brief idea about syllabus for the exam. From the topics specified there, one can determine that this exam requires pure basics (Also a little amount of advanced topics though). And they'd like to see how strong your basics are.So, I'd suggest pick some nice Java book and start from the basics and go along with the syllabus. Then take some mock tests, try out dumps. After that I guess you'll be probably ready for the exam. Work hard and you'll definitely get it. :)
