The Java programming language is multi-faceted. To use it, developers need to understand what's meant by Java variables and recognize the different data types in the language. This course focuses on Java variables, and more specifically, the various primitive data types this language has to offer. Follow along with this course and create variables in your program to comprehend the effects of static typing in Java. Then, explore the various primitive data types in Java - from numeric types, such as integers and doubles, to text representations in the form of strings. Finally, you'll investigate the use of an ordered collection of data, namely arrays. When you're done with this course, you'll be able to confidently employ variables and several primitive data types when programming in Java.
