    The newbies should watch out for that site.

    Hi tim!

    I apologize in advance... but could you elaborate on this statement?

    Cheers :)

    No problem Tim, I just wasn't sure what you were referring to and if it was something to look out for I wanted to know why. :)

    Cheers mate

    Is that how you examine programming skill?
    At my school we actually PROGRAM for our programming exams, not just answer questions. We are interested in algorithms and programs that do things. In real life, you wont get paid for answering questions about Java. You get paid for programming.

    Thanks for your input jimm1. However, I don't believe you've examined the Sun Certification processes listed on their site, in which case I suggest you do.

    The Sun certifications are internationally recognized much like Microsoft and CompTIA, to name a few. For the SCJP, as mentioned on their site, yes you do test your fundamental knowledge on the language by answering questions. Certifications are not a substitute for a well-rounded education, they are merely a supplement to help you stand out amongst the field of applicants. A certification says that you care about your chosen field so much that you went out and proved it. These are not easy exams, and this is only one level. Once someone has proven their skill in the fundamentals, they can move on to SCJD which does require a heavy programming component, not just algorithms, but a real live working application to showcase your programming and design ability. Look at the graphic at that link - the SCJD is again on one more level and realize where I said that SCJP is foundational.

    Hope this clears it up. If not, really review their certification processes.

    What about if I study and get a Masters Degree in Computer Science at University? I don't need a Sun Certification or anything, and I came second in our country out of 120 000 people in our programming Olympiad (Focused on Algorithms, not knowledge of a language), will this allow me to "Stand Out". Or are algorithms nowadays just shunted aside like most things which require true thinking and practice? It seems programming is becoming all about how much knowledge of commands and libraries you have, not about algorithms. Well guess what, behind all those fancy libraries and commands are algorithms. People who are expert in algorithms don't need all these supports which allow them to bypass the algorithm process. I notice when people make games nowadays, they just base their games on other platforms, and just have to do a bit of coding to specification for their game. This is just another way of bypassing algorithms. Well guess what? Someone had to make that platform.

    Jimm

    Not everyone comes 2nd in their country's olympiad.

    Libraries aid in standardisation and prevents reinventing the wheel.

    There are plenty of people writing mind blowing algorithms - try and figure out mapReduce.

    Ok from your post it seems like you want to write some games.

    Go study Computer Science - and write your algorithms in whatever language you choose.

    Squeeze every bit of bandwidth from your state-of-the-art GPU.

    Stand Out.

    However there are people that don't need or want to dive into algorithms since they just need to get work done, using the wonderful platform the good people at Sun have developed for them.

    There are millions of jobs out there that don't need the wheel reinvented.

    If you want to write in e.g. C++ you'll have to port your code to other platforms.

    With Java you can write once run anywhere - and guess what - you can plug in any algorithm you want.
