Well, I’ve completed my first programming class, which taught me Java and the basics of programming in general.
I generally know Java, but I’m not fluent; however, I do know how to find out how to do things using the online Java docs. Its like knowing the basic rules of a spoken language, but still having a dictionary to help with harder words and grammar.
I’m going to call this goal done, and move onto another programming oriented goal. Either learn another language (C/C++), continue learning Java in depth, start applying my knowledge to things (such as joining the/an open-source community), or any combination of these things.
I’m going to lectures by people from microsoft, yahoo and google. They are all great motivators! The technology we have even now is astounding, and that means it is getting more advanced every moment. I am very excited for the future, and now that I am learning programming, I get to be a part of it!
I’m learning slowly but surely. and happily.
Got a book on java at the library today, and my programming class starts on thursday. Yay!
Wow, this is a really good book.
Taking a programming class next quarter. Hope I pass it (unlike last time…)
The first class I’ve ever failed in my entire life, and It was C/C++ programming. Though I was in the hospital 2 days before the final was due, and didnt finish it, I wasn’t doing too hot in that class as it was.
But I dont care about the class. I’m going to learn it. I know the basics now, at least.
I’m taking an intro to programming class, and am learning the basics of C. yay.
