Hello fellow Java programmers! I am 18 years old, and I just started learning the java program about one and a half months ago. I'm taking a class called AP computer science, and the language we're learning is java. So I've been having tough time in that class, and so has everyone else who didn't know java before the class started. But what I really want to do is start learning java out of class to get ahead. So what better idea than to join a forum about java! I really hope to learn a lot here from reading the topics, and posting my problems with it. xD
Hi and welcome.
This is TheList™ to get you started:
Sun's basic Java tutorial
Sun's New To Java Center
Includes an overview of what Java is, instructions for setting up Java, an intro to programming (that includes links to the
above tutorial or to parts of it), quizzes, a list of resources, and info on certification and courses.
A general Java resource site. Includes FAQs, forums, courses, more.
To quote the tagline on their homepage: "a friendly place for Java greenhorns." FAQs, forums (moderated, I believe), sample
code, all kinds of goodies for newbies. From what I've heard, they live up to the "friendly" claim.
