Help me get interested in Java??
Right, so i really want to learn to program in Java after i've seen all the insane stuff my older brother created.. but of course he isn't interested in helping a stupid 15yr old like me...
I'll be taking 2 computer courses in Grade 10, 1 of them introduces programming languages while the other is hardware stuff. I would really like to know Java and maybe C++ along the way, but after about 2 weeks of learning this stuff i got kind of bored and i have a feeling i may not have chosen a programming language right for me.
So my real question is:
Can somebody tell me the benefits of Java and what it is used for?
