Java Local Development Environments Advanced Tooling Slam Dunk!

This has to be the best course in the history of Java!

Can't believe we got to dunk our instructor in a tank full of cold water! That had me laughing a lot, I didn't expect it at all. That slow-mo, lol.

Awesome code challenge by the way Craig, finishing out that program was really satisfying and figuring out how to track lines of code through the debugger is an incredibly helpful skill that many Uni CS students surprisingly lack.

This was a great way to end the course and I'm sure everyone's going to finish this course with a smile on their faces. Thanks for being awesome Craig! (:

While I haven't personally looked at the course, your post has now intrigued me to view the series. Keep on learning and post your feedback on how the teachers are doing on these forums, their social media accounts, and through the contact information for Team Treehouse. Additionally, if you want to tag your favorite teacher or other users to posts like this, simply use the @ sign and start typing their user tag; a dropdown list will appear where you can select the user you want to include.

Great course well done! I had always used Eclipse and not ever very well. The tips and tricks you taught with IntelliJ make it so much more useful. Your positive attitude helps to make watching the videos enjoyable

Creative, funny, educational, inspirational, and entertaining.

"You throw exceptions better than that." Nice.

You're a nutter Craig Dennis, but in a fantastic way. Your personality, teaching style and your Java course are awesome.
