    Default A wrong start...

    OK so hi people.

    I'm going to describe what made me enter this forum:


    For some reasons, I always had this idea that i would become a programmer.

    In 2007, i discovered how to program on my calculator. I had a friend who was very good at it, and he "mentored" me. So i became pretty good too at programming on my calculador.

    Then i wanted to learn a "real" programming language... but i thought it would be easier to learn at school.

    I started java last semester in university. But i started the assignements very late and didn't program for myself like i did with my calculador. I was stressed when i programmed and didn't like it very much. During the holidays, i had nothing to do, and i didn't program.
    Instead, i started getting involved in flash stick animation.
    I started animating, and my animations suck, but i continue anyways.
    And you have also moments of desesperation where you can't animate something correctly etc, and still i continue.

    So then i asked myself: why do i prefer going on flash rather than java? it's as stressful, as hard, etc.

    Then i have been thinking "what is different between my realtion with flash and my relation with java?"

    I found out that how i started was different!

    So that's why i joined this forum.

    I am starting from scratch with my "emotional" relation with java by entering this community and try to have fun.

    Feel free to contact me by any means :)

    -Yann (real name)

    Ok, here I'm welcome you to our community. :)

    The way you think is not make sense in programming lol. Java and Flash, I don't know why you think in that two ways. You have to learn a lot in Java, a lot. But it's not difficult at all.

    If you want to learn from the basis about Java best place to start work is Suns' tutorial. All what you need is there.

    THANKS!!! :D
    I really appreciate it!

    Basically what i wanted to say is that i learned java through the stress of school and due dates etc.

    I realize now that i would have prefered learning it with fun and entertainement.

    So that's how i want to learn from now on.
