    Book information

    Today, I would like to introduce a book recommended for Spring Boot beginners.
    I myself was very helpful when using Spring Boot for the first time in my business.
    That is the book ↓↓ here ↓↓.

“[Introduction to not regret] Spring Kaitai Shinsho” Tatsuya Tamura (Author)

From now on, I would like to introduce some recommended points of this book.

This book is recommended for those who understand the basics such as object-oriented programming in Java, but have no experience in framework development using Spring Boot.
It’s also recommended for those who don’t have the time, or who want to get a quick overview of Spring. On the contrary, it may not be enough for those who want to have a deeper understanding of Spring.

1. 1. Easy to express, rich in sample code and easy to read

Actually, I read several Spring related books in addition to this book, but there were some that were difficult to understand in terms of content and wording, and that the usage of each function did not come to my mind. In that respect, this book explains along the flow of making an app, so I was able to read it quickly as if I were reading a novel.
In addition, the sample code is posted not only in the relevant part but also in the class declaration and the code before and after it, and the topic part is underlined. Therefore, the image of the implementation is easy to come up, and I was able to deepen my understanding smoothly without getting lost when reading.

2. Optimal volume for Spring beginners

As mentioned above, the explanation follows the flow of creating an app, so you can learn practical topics with highlights. Therefore, it does not cover all the functions, but since it covers major topics such as DI, AOP, Spring security, and Spring JDBC, if you understand one book, the essential knowledge of Spring Boot required for application development is I think you can input everything.

3. 3. If you are a Kindle Unlimited member, you can read it at no additional charge! Moreover, it supports layout for e-books!

This book has a kindle version, which supports the layout for e-books, so the layout such as font size is automatically adjusted according to the device. Characters are clearly displayed and easy to read. You can also draw highlight markers, search, and jump to the table of contents, so you can record your learning and use it like a dictionary. With a fixed layout, these functions cannot be used, and the characters tend to be small, making it difficult to read.
And what makes me happy is that this book is eligible for Kindle Unlimited, so if you have a contract, you can read it at no additional charge! By the way, Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service that allows you to read all-you-can-read e-books for 980 yen per month. In addition to technical books, you can read manga and magazines as much as you want, and I think it is cheaper than buying a single technical book, so if you have never used it, why not give it a try?

in conclusion

As mentioned above, I think that it is perfect for the first book of Spring Boot learning, so please give it a try. Thank you for reading until the end.
