Zeno's Java Tutorial


Between December 1995 and March 1996, I was working in the IBM Centre for Java Technology at Hursley, and spent most of that time developing and delivering a series of lunch time seminars on Java. Eventually I combined these seminars into a Java Tutorial which I gave, in various forms, over the next year or so to audiences in the UK, San Franscisco (twice), New Orleans and Montreal as well as at the Almaden and Haifa IBM Research Labs. I also gave short, overview versions in several UK locations as well as in Amsterdam, Austin and Boston.

Since it was written in 1995/6, it's a 1.0 tutorial, though I did add some later notes on 1.1 features. If I ever get the time, I'll try to revise it properly. Meanwhile, here it is:
