Elvisten10: i flowed well with java in 2 weeks.
it is not ur first language then, even if its not ur first, u can't learn d entire language construct in 2weeks, d libraries alone sef will tak a while to gt used to.

I recommend Big Java Late Objects by Cay S. Horstmann, it's a 164mb pdf file, it's really good for beginners, and covers data structures, design and algorithmic principles, visually appealing with images where needed.... I'm a beginner and would recommend this book for beginners. Graćias!!

I actually have a diffferent opinion about programming.
Don't get me wrong, javalove is a VERY VERY close friend of mine. And we have had this argument a couple of times. I don't believe writing Hello World makes you a Programmer. NO!. Same way you can't predict Paracetamol for headache and call yourself a Doctor. If you call yourself a Programmer because you write helloworld or 1+1, then what do you call Linux Torvalds?
I actually wrote a blog sometimes ago, it's a funny read if you are interested. It's not as serious as javalove's post.

I aspire to be a programmer, but here's the thing; I've not done any formal computer training and I'd wanted to go to NIIT but I was confused about the course to start from. I need guidance..

So What makes u a programmer??, maybe u mistaking a software architect or software developer for a programer!
|Re: So You Want To Be A Programmer...? by kambo(m): 2:44pm On Oct 04, 2013|
it's easy to share the highlights of ur success story in sketches but if u wanna help a broda up to ur pedestal u've got to colour in d details then u'll b a true mentor.
U cud even because of the rich details graduate to printing a biography.
what made u a non (medical) doctor(supposed) get interested in writing a medical app! What seeded the interest?
How did u go from toy apps to mega app, this is a transition many cant make hence theyre stuck as puzzle solvers , teachers etc
there's a saying "those who cant do(or program) teach".
Zuckerberg transition to creating facebook and billy gatus transition to writing altair basic is very well documented. I.e the small apps they wrote b4 d big apps. Share urs.
How long did the blockbuster app take, what was ur experience creating awareness about the app and eventually getting accepted enough to address a notable audience. Then share the frustration stories the low moments when it seemed ur confidence was on d gang plank
and how u averted its toppling over.
Cuz all newbies go thru these phases but som fall by the wayside seeing how a fellow brother made it thru can make a difference btw anoda success story on NL or giving up out of (mayb wrong) belief that theyre not cut out for this kinda thing.

Hell yeahh, deitel is cool, but u need patience to understand deitel, if u are q beginner truelly, But wen u learn to love the book, You wont even know u are learning. You can also use "The Java programming language by James Gosling" The author of java... along with the deitel
|Re: So You Want To Be A Programmer...? by jizz: 11:19pm On Dec 07, 2013|
Well to my opinion, being a programmer is quite simple. As a newbie in programming, yo can start to lean vb.net first, which is uite easier and later proceed to c language and then java. You can study online on your own by using youtube and google.
There is a new Nigeria Freelancing platform that you can achieve this from, It is http://jolancer.com/index.php/get-started/user/dashboard
You can register as a freelancer on the site and put you through with the programming language to start with and after being competent with the programming, then you can get a frelancing job that suits your skills. Just register on the site and contact the people in charge at firstname.lastname@example.org good luck with learning programming
