  1. I just started learning Java and your videos are by far the easiest to understand. I’ve search and watch tons of Java tutorial videos on youtube, but I could not understand what they’re trying to teach.

  2. I’m paying mega dollars to attend a University and find your tutorials the best money can buy!! I’ve only finished watching 3 of your videos…can’t wait for the rest.

    Great videos, you’re contributing a lot to so many people.
    May your life be blessed with an ever lasting happiness.

  5. Chris,
    You have no idea how bright the bulb is that you turned on in my headspace. I was completely at sea with Java with no lighthouse in sight but after watching 2 of your videos I am making my way safely to land. Much thanks and please continue to influence students lost at sea.

  13. Sir Peter

    Thank you for all these helpful videos, it is very clear and understandable.

    I was just wondering, is it possible to download your videos so that i could save it to a portable device which i will view whenever i have a free time?

    thanks again!


  14. Hey, just want to say thank you so much! Like many others on here, I have found your tutorials so much easier and and beneficial then being in school for the last semester!! And they are a lot more easier to understand than the other ones I have found on youtube. I can’t believe how easy and simple you have made it look by the way you have presented it.

    I have just finished watching tutorial 2 and it is already starting to make a lot more sense. I will definitely donate to your site once I get some funds into my Paypal account!! LOL. Other people should donate too because this is some really good stuff if you are just beginning to learn Java or don’t grasp the concepts yet. Plus, Michael is taking time and effort to provide this for free to us!

    LOL I promise I am in no way affiliated with this site. I am just a desperate student that was looking for a way to learn Java quickly and easily for my Intro to Programming class, and I happened to find the first tutorial on youtube, then came to this URL.

    So thank you again! These videos are great and I’m looking forward to moving on to the additional ones.

  15. Your videos are amazing. You’re a funny guy, too 🙂 Keep up the good work I’m actually starting to understand this stuff!

  16. can you please tell me where to find the file which enables us to take inputs from the keyboard… You videos are just awesome!!! thanks a lot… please keep creating more videos!!!
