    Smile I wanted to say hello world

    I did not see a welcoming post in this forum forum, so I hope this is in the right section.

    I am new to Java, I find that coding is refreshing to me. I have only experience with Ticalc basic lol and I just messed around in high school with that.

    So I am a complete newb and I look forward to reading from these forums. I know I will learn a ton.


    My goal in programming is to be able to write music theory and teaching aid for my students.

    Have a look at JFugue. For the rendering process Lilypond is an ideal tool. (both tools are free).

    kind regards,

    Thanks for those links JosAH.

    I have them stored as a bookmark for later when I am better at basics.
    I am probably going to purchase a book or 2 or 3.

    I am looking for a Giant book that runs you through a course with clear explanation to someone that would have never programmed before (I dont want them assuming I understand). The book would have lots of projects. I am thinking about this one.


    Java Programming for the Absolute Beginning.
    Any other ideas?

    Personally I'm quite a fan of "Java the Programming Language" by James Gosling (the creator of Java) et. al. The series "X the Programming Language" by their creators (C or C++) are considered bibles by the communities. The books are quite terse (the C++ book is an exception to that rule ;-) but loaded with information.

    kind regards,

    Jos
