I am Mark, I am a Java newb currently reading Java for dummies lol
It took about a year to figure out what lang to learn.
I started with php then some ruby then some visual c# python but struggled for ever to see what the best for me. I like Java because its multi platform and you can do web, desktop etc etc.
I have to admit ruby is sexy lol
anyways you will see me around :P
Nice to meet the Java Community!!!
