In this course we’ll be using Spring Boot and Java to build a backend app which pulls information from a third party API.  We’ll then display the location of the ISS on a map in a web browser using a little JavaScript.
This course is great for people who want to expand their Java skillset, use Spring Boot to provide backend REST API’s and to learn to connect to third party APIs to retrieve data.
Your finished app will be able to track the current location of the International Space Station and plot its movements on a map viewable in a web browser.

Senior Java Consultant
I am an Oracle certified Java developer with around 15 years of professional Java software development experience working as a consultant mostly in financial services, trading and start up environments though Im proud to say started my programming career on a Commodore 64 back in 1982 to create games using a software package called White Lightning which was a combination of Fortran and a graphic design editor – pretty advanced for the 1980’s.
I love to learn new technologies and spend a large portion of my spare time on my Mac Book Pro hooked up to a few Raspberry Pi’s, or taking a deep dive in to a new framework to always be learning.
I mentor junior developers through the London Java Community’s Slack program and I try to get along to tech talks and presentations whenever I can.  I’m always happy to talk and discuss tech and best practices and I’m always keen to learn more from other like minded developers.
