Hi everyone!

Posted 19 January 2009 - 10:17 PM

Hi everyone! I'm a freshman at Bucknell University going for a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering. I have some previous programming experience in Java, and I know basic HTML. I used to know a little C++ but I turned my sights over to Java, so I really only program in that, which is bad. Any suggestions for another language to learn? My current comp sci class is a joke - but its an easy A, so woohoo, lol. Anyways, this place looks like a great community, so I'm eager to dive in! Haha. See you around the forum!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Good Morning!

Welcome aboard D.I.C. and the insanity we call coding. :)


I, too, have some grounding in JAVA, and am working on learning Visual Basic [at the urging of my sister]. What you learn should probably depend on what your goal is.

What type of programming do you eventually want to get into?

hey MatzoMeal, welcome to D.I.C. , java is a great programming language it is my best and i liked more than any language it is not bad to know only one language as long as you are good at it, actually i prefer knowing one or two languages and be good at them instead of knowing six and being bad or medium at them, i will be more than happy to answer your java,html, and css questions and help you out, i am sure that you have schosen the right community and i hope that you will have some good and rewarding time here, i hope to see you around, good luck in your university, i am a sophomore university student too ;)

Hmmm, I like playing with GUI's, and I like the idea of making games. So does that mean I should try out Visual Basic and C++?
