On an unrelated note, I've started learning how to program in Java and I'm enjoying it quite a lot. Learning a new language is definitely challenging, but it's extremely rewarding when successfully figuring out the solution to a coding problem (using the new language you've learned). I've only begun to scratch the surface of learning to program but I hope to get better and better with time and hopefully bring some of the project ideas I've written down into a reality. I recently wrote a cheesy little program which displays a pixelated "8-bit" Hatsune Miku using another program called DrawingPanel. It doesn't do anything except code the graphical representation of Miku but I think it's really cool (because I'm a noob that's never done anything like this before). I'm sure when I get better at Java I'll look back and be really embarrassed about letting myself post this, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?
All in all, I have high hopes that 2013 will bring some interesting and exciting new things. What exactly? I don't even know but I'll hopefully have more interesting updates to provide until then.
Hi, I'm not sure about the WizIQ course or if it's any good. However, I've been using this book as a resource (http://www.amazon.com/Building-Java-Programs-Approach-Edition/dp/0136091814/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359570536&sr=8-1&keywords=Building+Java+Programs) and it's been really good because it's written for people who know absolutely nothing about programming at all. A lot of the books I've looked at assume you've had some exposure to programming at some level and throw a lot of complicated material at you without explanation, but this isn't the case with this book, so I recommend it as a great resource if you go slow and take your time.ReplyDelete
