In this month’s Engineering Team workshop, we assessed our understanding of many concepts of Java. To that end, we took an individual assessment test inspired by the exams designed for the Oracle Certified Associate and Professional. Afterwards we discussed our answers in the group and revealed the correct solutions. The goal was to help the team identify strengths and weaknesses in their understanding of the core of the programming language that we use the most in our projects.
With today’s very intelligent Integrated Development Environments, which include advanced code completion and even suggestions on how to fix issues, it is easy to work with a programming language without really understanding it. This is one of the reasons for us to follow closely the evolutions of Java through our workshops and, from time to time, challenge our understanding of even the most basic concepts.
