Posted 22 Apr 2016The forums have slowed down a bit. There will need to be a new generation of DICers that are active every day. I remember those days. Tons of people active in most of the forums. Regulars answering questions and hanging around in the lounge.
I joined this site just after I turned 18. I turned 26 last month. Time flies, times change, and priorities shift. 8 years is a long time for lots of peoples' lives to progress.
I'm not too active around here anymore, but I can say that the few years where I was here every day were awesome.
Posted 22 Apr 2016I forgot all about the cake! I would just like to say you are no longer allowed to give me shit on Facebook over a couple weird bus stop interactions... when you're the man who had half of England conspiring to make you eat exorbitant amounts of cake by yourself, complete with videos a la Anonymous. You win the award for weirdest shit. Some crazy dude begging for money pales in comparison, my friend.
This is true. One crazy dude <<<<<< going viral (twice)
Posted 8 Apr 2016I am sorry but I cannot learn anything via memorization only. I really need to apply it in a practical manner or it just does not stick in the brain. What would be nice is a gigantic list full of simple programs to make.
Thanks for trying to help but that is not what I am after. I do not need a negative you should not learn from Youtube. I do not need someone to tell me to buy a book. I do not need a project suggestion list.
Perhaps try not to contradict yourself when you ask for what you want, then?
If I am only learning beginner concepts I am not going to come up with how to on my own. I need to see someone else DO IT in front of me.
You all are trying to make learning code harder than what it needs to be. Forcing yourselves to come up with answers. No wonder people give up and go away frustrated leaving a few king of the hill geeks in charge. For all free help out there coding is still a greedy guarded secret.
We are not trying to make it that way. People perceive it that way. I often tell people it's much easier to do my job than people give me credit for. I like to use the analogy of "if you can write a cooking recipe effectively, you can write a computer program".
Everyone learns differently. You've made it somewhat clear that my way of learning programming clearly wouldn't work for you. I just dove in and got my hands dirty. Are we supposed to magically know exactly how to make you the greatest programmer alive? I hardly think that's fair.
Anyway, something else to consider is how you're searching for these materials. I used google for 30 seconds and came across a video of someone writing code. Here it is. I simply googled "java programming tutorial youtube". That one at the very least seems to take you through basic conditionals and class fields. Should at least get you started.
Posted 8 Apr 2016No, you don't have to use the Package:: syntax, however it doesn't hurt to do so in most cases. If you're using multiple inheritance and both parent classes have a function of the same signature, then you do have to specify which one to use. If you aren't using multiple inheritance (the likely case) the child will run the matching function inside its own class definition first. If the child doesn't have one, the parent's definition is used.
And make sure that the functions you intend to use in any child classes of the Package class are declared public or protected, otherwise the child class will not be able to use them.
