Helping "Alex" Get That PhD
What a PhD means and strategies to get it
In 2019, I recorded a course for one of my Superpack students on how to land that first Java Job (Helping "George" ...). A few months ago, I received an email from George that he had indeed landed his first job as a Java programmer. I could not have been more proud of my student. Well done George!
This year, another of my Superpackians asked if I could record a course for him Helping "Alex" to get that PhD. Expecting he was half-joking, I offered to do that for him. And here it is. Available as part of the Java Specialists Superpack.
Be careful though, you might just spend the next four years of your life studying some microscopic detail :-) However, restaurant reservations will never be the same.
Heinz Kabutz is the author of The Java Specialists’ Newsletter, a publication enjoyed by tens of thousands of Java experts in over 145 countries. His book “Dynamic Proxies (in German)” was #1 Bestseller on Amazon.de in Fachbücher für Informatik for about five minutes until Amazon fixed their algorithm. Thanks to a supportive mother, he has now sold 5 copies.
Heinz’s Java Specialists’ newsletter is filled with amusing anecdotes of life on the Island of Crete. He is a popular speaker at all the best Java conferences around the world, and also at some of the worst. He teaches Java courses in classrooms around the world, where his prime objective is to make absolutely sure that none of his students fall asleep. He is not always successful.
