QuoteI'm not sure what language is considered "best" to learn,
There is no *best* language to learn. If you peruse the forum you'll see this question asked over and over and over again. Programming languages are tools to make your project a reality. So define what projects you want to do and then narrow your set of tools (aka languages) down from there.
QuoteMy other problem is that I have no idea where to begin.
Another frequent question with an easy solution - pick one of the languages you were getting and introduction to and buy a book to fill in the rest. Directed learning with a book will make things more clear than flailing around with disconnected tutorials.
To preempt your next question on "what book is best?" - again first figure out what projects you want to do, pick a language based on that project, and then do a quick search for 'book' in that sub forum. You'll be greeted with plethora of book options.
I mentioned that "after learning a language changing to another language is easier since you know the principle". I know there is no best that's the reason I put "" between it. I know this is a standard question, but it is more like "what language did you start with and why?".
Books are cool, the problem is that when you ask for a book there is 5000 people that disagree with each other and says "that book is better" therefore I find it really hard to find a book which fits me. But yea for sure, I think books are more relyable than internet tutorials which aren't that well explained.
If you are comfortable with Java right now, and only consider yourself to have a basic understanding of the language I'd say stick with Java tutorials for now. Find a website that maybe has some cool example projects to learn some new features of the language and build up from there. Programming will come with practice and eventually you'll get an idea and feel comfortable enough to start your own project to put what you've learned to use. I found it just kinda came over time while I was in college. I had no exposure to programming prior to college and fell in love with it there starting with C++, but quickly transitioning the Java. It is true that knowing one language will usually help you transition to other languages that share the same syntax fairly easily. We used mainly Java in class to teach techniques, but I now work as a C#/Silverlight developer and the transition and time to get comfortable with it was pretty easy by seeing some examples, working through a few tutorials and reading lots of the MSDN library when I wanted to get something done and understand what I was writing. In college you'll get into more than just programming and you'll quickly find being a developer doesn't always entail just firing up your IDE and breaking your knuckles on your keyboard writing new code. You'll learn algorithms, design patterns, best practices, software processes, and data structures. You'll learn to solve problems and propose solutions without ever really writing a single line of code. You'll learn to think in the abstract and I like that feeling. That's not to say that I don't enjoy writing some code and watching a project come to life. I'm glad I picked the career I did and if you think you have a love of software, problem solving, and coding I think you'll enjoy it as well. There really is no "best language" to learn. In my short time working as a developer I've already worked extensively in three different programming languages, one of which I had to learn on the fly for an iOS project just because that's what the place I worked for wanted. So the "best language" is the one your place of business needs for a project right now.
I find Java easier to understand compairing to C++. I might aswell go with Java then, also since I have the "basics". Didn't quite follow you on algorithms to data structures. But yea, it is kind of obvious that you don't hammer code continously. Uhm, in my opinon coding is the only subject in school that I really really enjoyed. Would sit after class trying to get it to work. And yea, I like to solve problems.
well 1st youhave to decide what you want to do? webistes, windows applications, mobile apps, or other
I don't understand what you mean by what do you want to do? I wanna become an overall better programmer. I'd love to program games(in the future). But really, anything computer wise(a windows application perhaps? idk). I don't have any goal, and I still don't know where I should start.
Posted 30 May 2012Okey I tried everything.
<table border=0 width=450> <tr> <td>Vara</td> <td>Antal</td> <td>Pris</td> </tr> <% Do Until rs.EOF amt = rs("Amount") pre = rs("Price") tot = amt * pre %> <form method="get" action="Shopcart_delete.asp"> <td><% =rs("Info") %></td> <td><% =rs("Amount") %></td> <td><% =tot %> kr</td> <td><Input type = "hidden" value = "<% =rs("Info") %>" name = "Info"></td> <td><Input type = "hidden" value = "delete" name = "del"></td> <td><input name="deleted" type="submit" value="Tabort"></td> </form></table>
It is in a rs.EOF loop. So if there is another object in the shopcart it will show it aswell, the problem is what you see on the picture is that it doesn't put the next "item" in the table, but it puts it under the table.
Posted 29 May 2012I didn't understand so much of what you wrote, what you mean with all rows should have three td pairs? Please give an example.
I will for sure.
Posted 25 May 2012Could you write code of that? I've never heard of Comparator and why sort the lastname?
Posted 16 May 2012I see, but I've gotten so far. Atleast I feel like I have.. C:
I fixed login and register and I've only missing some pieces I think to complete this webshop/shopcart. And then I'm done.
So start over from the beginning sounds pretty far away. However if I'm going to do websites next time I'm going to go with ASP.net
