Just thought I'd say hello. I"ve used this forums before to get help etc from searching, but finally broke down and joined myself. I'm a homemaker currently. I was going to school for Computer Engineering, but only made it two years (my partner is studying medicine and we felt it a better investment to send her to school since my Social anxiety would most likely keep me from ever actually applying my CE degree). I hope to go back, but maybe when we can afford uni without loans etc. Sadly most of my time in the last two years was spent finishing my Math requirements, and some general Physics/electrical eng. courses. Had not had the opportunity to formally study any programming at uni.
Glad to have registered, this forums has been a great help so far :)
Re: Hello :D
Welcome to the forums, Glad to have you!
I wouldn't agree java is 'better' than C, tbh C and java are quite similar syntactically. There are of course differences, but I wouldn't dissuade you from C if it's what you are interested. You can get K&R C real cheap and it's a very good book. Other than that, good luck learning java, and let us know if you need any help.
