Post icon  Posted 16 January 2009 - 08:26 PM

Hey!

Name - Jonathan (Jonny's fine =)
Age - 18 (nice n legal..well almost)
Sex - All the time (k maybe just holidays)
Languages - Started with a bit of VB, did Database and I'm guessing the language was Oracle(?) and now on Java

I just started learning java, have an amazingly sucky teacher but despite that i kinda love working things out..the logic behind it, seeing how things tick, [kinda like Sylar eh?] maybe not SO much..but somewhere there, probably a few people wondering wth im talking abt..apologies!

thanks fr taking the time to read this =)

I'm suffering through the same thing, Java is a decent language but my programming class goes at a horribly slow pace and my teacher isn't very good, I do more teaching than coding nowadays. Anyway welcome to DIC!

Welcome to DIC. Java can be a tough language to learn as the API is very large. I think that a really good way to start especially if your class is moving at a slow pace. A good book I would recommend is Big Java, it covers the basics really well and goes into depth if you want to go ahead. If you're looking for more of an online tutorial I would suggest this:

And remember, you can always come for some assistance if you need it on the java forum. Cheers!

Hey Jonny, welcome! Glad to see we have some stuff in common, Java. It's a great language, and like yourself, I still have much to learn, but I'm starting to see how things work as well, compared to the beginning of this school year when I was just completely dumbfounded at what we were learning in AP Computer Science...

Well, hope you stay active at this amazing site!

Hello Jonny! Welcome to dream.in.code. We're glad to have you join us. How do you like Java so far? I haven't worked with it myself, but I would like to learn it. I hope to see you around the forums...if you get bored here, jump over to the caffeine lounge and hang out for a while. :)
