The Hands-On Java Seminar is a multimedia learning experience incorporating more than 15 hours of audio lectures by Bruce Eckel, synchronized with 500 slides of information. This includes all of the lectures from the five-day full-immersion training seminar. The seminar is derived entirely from the second edition of Thinking in Java, so it is an ideal supplement to that book (the HTML version of the book is included in the package). The lectures begin with Java syntax and go all the way through such advanced topics as multithreading and network programming.
"Totally the best multimedia training in any computer subject currently available." Nikita Popov, Student in Michigan
Software Development Magazine online (www.sdmagazine.com) May, 1998: "Eckel is an accomplished presenter and a pleasure to listen to ... an excellent introduction to Java for people with a basic understanding of programming ... a great value."
Just wanted to say thank you again for the great course ... this was the best seminar I've ever taken! And thanks to the CD, this seminar never really ends ... I got your perspective last week when you taught the course live, and now hearing Bruce's view of it on the CD is great reinforcement ... Two teachers for the price of one! James Pleger, Loudoun County (Virginia) Government
"Innovative, entertaining, and useful" Reg Charney, President, Charney & Day Inc.
"Thanks for putting together a reasonably priced and absolutely excellent CD on Java. I can't wait to go through your C++ material too." Peter Norquist, Web designer, Pleasanton, CA
"I wish to say I am greatly pleased with the quality of your teaching material.... One way I do this [find time to learn] is to take down all of the audio and listen to it as I ride my bike in the neighborhood. Richard F. Parker, Sigma-5, Inc. Consulting engineer (embedded systems, medical devices), Delray Beach, FL
"Cool cd ... excellent work!" Nicolas Eypert, Games Developer, Visiware France, Rimshak@Nicolas.org

"It takes away parts of the need for having explicit and detailed Java tutorial courses" Arne-Jorgen Berre, SINTEF

"The CD is FANTASTIC. I started working through your slides for the "Hands-on
Java" class that you offer and its almost like being there (less the Golden Gate
Bridge.....any way you could work that in?) :-) Thanks for the CD and keep up
the great work!"

"I am quite impressed by the way it is organised. I particularly like the combination of Seminar and Book: the intonation and various nuances of the voice help to reinforce the written word.The down-to-earth, no nonsense approach is very much appreciated. I think it is a great product and well worth the cost. Thanks, Bruce." Wilf Stacey
"Thank you very much - You are a class act!!! I consider you the epitome of what the internet should be in terms of how information, products, commerce, and success should be." Paul Grunwald, Intel
"I was listening and soon lost track of time. The demo has convinced me that the CD will be a worthwhile purchase." Jeremy Nickolet - University Student.
"I just received the CD-ROM and, as I thought, it is a great piece of work. We use the book here in classes and I believe it is one of the best educational resources about Java." Dr. Reuven Aviv, Snr Lecturer of Computer Science, Dept. of Information Technologies, The Waikato Polytechnic, Hamilton, New Zealand. firstname.lastname@example.org
"I had studied C++ with TIC and now Java with TIJ but using the Hands-On CD is wonderful. ... The audio is wonderful. Thanks so much." Paul Chum, Anabasis
"Your CD is excellent. It sure helps to have someone explain concepts instead of reading and trying to figure out what is going on. I just finished the CD for the first time and plan on listening to it again soon. Thanks, the CD has been invaluable."
"The CD means I'm not going to lose what I learned. I've been using it every day; it's a great reference."
