Nairaland Programmers I Need Your Advise by jejelife(m): 1:23pm On Jul 26, 2011
Although I happen to be a medical scientist by training but I have great interest in computing i really love working with computers this interest made me to learn web programming from a friend of mine studying computer science during our university's days. I was introduced to php and mysql db by this friend of mine and ever since have never looked back. In the mean time, i decided to take my programming skills to another level, i decided to start learning Java on my own just of recent, but it has really been difficult for me understanding java, have read many E-books on java several times but am still having problem with java please i need your assistance I will be very happy if i can be connected with a java programmer on-line that can put me through the rudiments of java have already installed java development tool kit 6 and Netbean on my system please i need your reply.
thanks

I know a lot of good java programmers here. However, the way it works is, you try to solve a problem, keep trying until you cry.lol. Then you bring the problem here, someone would put you through and show you ur mistakes, and then you go back and finish it up.

When I started it was atrocious! I left Java and went to PHP. Made me understand more about programming. Went back to java. Still learning.

Read every thing programming related. Go to stackoverflow and see the kind of monster programmers there, I reckon that would spur you on.!


Just be enthusiastic.

I think you just have to be patient and don't force it. Whenever you get to a road block, relax give yourself a break and get back to it. With time u'll become an addict!

We've all been there. It's the paradigm shift that unsettles when learning an OOP language. Open your mind, give it time and you'll have your "Oh Oooooooh!" soon.

I consider PHP a terrible language, so I think your problem may come from the fact that your introduction to programming began with the most silly of them all. Try focusing on JavaScript, as much of what you have in JavaScript, translate directly to Java. With time, you probably get yourself into programming language state of mind and learning Java then would become much easier then. This is my opinion

My God. You consider php as a terrible language and Javascript is not? Wow. This is a first.

I know . . . I really do believe that. Javascript is a better client side-technology -- PHP on the other hand I would compare to what JQuery is to JS, only on the server side.

How to learn Java:

1) Download the latest version of the JDK here:
- http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

2) Download the latest version of Netbeans here:
- http://netbeans.org/downloads/
- http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/netbeans/7.0/final/bundles/netbeans-7.0-ml-windows.exe

3) Read the Java tutorial on Netbeans website.

Good luck!

and follow this advise, when done, give urself another problem to solve.

php is not bad as you have painted it, maybe your interest lies in Javascript.
have you ever tried reading production javascript from google, facebook etc?

[size=15pt]Every good programmer i know warns against such, myself inclusive. Programming style matters, if you don't have your style then sorry, your shitty. If you are going to watch ny youtube vids make sure you have a style. Kinda difficult to explain in words but those vids force you to follow a particular style, reading detailed books is way better as you learn something and you manipulate it yourself. Its just like reading `Headfirst java` when you havent done anything java before, learning OOP without even knowing what its made up of.

Am not saying you shouldn't watch those vids but its good not to make them your number 1 priority.

I always end up typing the same thing always so am just gonna pass a link. Have a look at this[/size]

My interest does not lie in JavaScript at all. I simply informed the @Poster that Java and JavaScript have close syntax and so if he is good in the one, he would probably find it a bit easier to migrate to the server language.

PHP is, in my opinion as bad as I make it out to be. JavaScript remains quite easy to read, production or not.
Re: Nairaland Programmers I Need Your Advise by Nobody: 1:44pm On Aug 14, 2011
want to share some bad part of the language?

omo_to_dun:

This is not true. It depends on the programmer, not the language. I have read hideous PHP and hideous Javascript code. I have also read clean, easy to read, well documented PHP and Javascript code.
on point.

Most beginners rely on experts' views, while i was coming up, i believe Flash websites are bad, heavy, not SEO friendly and wise to avoid them.
There is nothing comparable to believing in your own research.
