Not exactly new to java, I used to work with visual cafe. But I didn't understand most of it. Now I follow a course called introduction to programming, where we do some java programming. We use ConTEXT for that. So it's a fresh start and I'm eager to learn. I'll be running against some problems now and then, so please bear with my.
I hope I can learn a lot. I get joy when my program works, after puzzling a while. I hope that this would last and maybe it will become an useful hobby of mine.
