    Default Hi to all!

    I do really want to learn Java programming. I'm a C# Developer for about a year now but I am trying to shift into Java as soon as I am not yet totally attached with C#. Do you think it is possible for me to learn java fast? And am I in a right decision to do this?

    I've learned that Java is an open source programming language so upgrading my knowledge with the language I think is much easier. Am I right?

    Anyway, I hope my knowledge in Java will improved, through the help of you guys.

    Default C# and Java

    Welcome js0624, to the Forums.

    I also kicked off with C# when I did OO for the first time. My lecturers always said: "Don't worry. C# and Java are very similar". And they are, but not identical. js0624, start with a good book first. Don't let the similarities between C# and Java fool you. They are still different from each other.

    Enjoy the Forums js0624! ;)

    I for another learned C# before learning Java and I echo what tim said, the two languages are similar, but yet so different. With that said, I don't think you'll have trouble picking up Java - just recognize the differences when they arrive in your development and you'll do fine. ;)

    There are good members here willing provide quality help. Ask and you shall receive. :)

    Learn as many programming languages as you can. There are ideas any ways of approaching a coding challenge that do not become apparent if one only studies one language. I would use C# if I worked in a shop that shipped only product intended for the vendor that product comes from.

    Largely so, not a simple answer available.
