    Default Hey everyone.

    Ok I have a few questions..
    First of all though im pretty young probly the youngest on these forums and I love java so yea. Im not like a nerd or anything it started when i was gaming (of course) and i got tired of how extremely hard the game was so i decided to make my own and fell in love:D

    I wasnt progressing very fast for how much time i put into learning and i know why now..I was just active on a small java forum for game specific programming..but now i have stepped up and decided to actually LEARN JAVA (wow) and apply some real skills to the game programming.

    Anywase this topic is about a future job programming and to ask a few question..

    First off:
    1.What age was everyone when they started with java?
    2.What was the best way you learned..besides college or something because im only in high school and they dont have classes for it.
    3.Is it a smart move to go with java or should i move to something like C or python ect.
    4.How hard is it to get a job a. for game programming and b. for programming in general.


    Thanks much appreciated!

    I've start work on with Java in 21, around 5 years ago. Until that I'm working on C/C++.

    Depends on the way you want to move. In my experience for C/C++ developers have more value than Java developers.

    In Asian countries, finding a job on game developments is bit difficult. I hope same thing is happen in everywhere.
