What a Character

Duration: 50 mins
Sualeh Fatehi
Senior Software Engineer & Dev Manager

We will cover the concepts of representing scripts from different languages, and an introduction to Unicode. We will delve into the details on character encodings such as EBCDIC and UTF-8, and discuss how Java deals with Unicode, including gotchas that can trip up programmers. We will not cover fonts, printing and so on. You will come away with a deeper understanding of best practices to read and write files and sockets, and save text data to a database.
