To iago:
« on: January 02, 2005, 06:19:03 pm »
Hey I want to get started programming and have had C++ and Java suggested as languages to start with.  I've decided to learn Java and heard you are good at with it.  Could you give me a few resources to get me started?  I found the eBook Thinking In Java 2nd Edition.  Also if this is not a good language to learn as your first please go ahead and tell me.  Thanks :).

You're going to start with Java or C++?! I'd start with Visual BASIC, it's most like English and easiest to start with. C++ is by far the hardest IMO, and Java is confusing. iago will tell you to just start with Java since he's a sellout like that, but whatever :P

I was thinking about Visual Basic but then heard it gives you bad programming habits, and was suggested C++ or Java.

If you're willing to do work, then learn Java or C first.  I personally don't like C++, but that's another story.

I learned Java at school, and at work, so I don't know what to recommend in terms of books.  I have my textbook, but it isn't good or bad.  Mythix just purchased a couple Java books, I'll point him this way, maybe he'd know more than me.

Now that my permissions set I can give you a little bit of support.


Through my time of diving into different OOP languages (C++, PERL, PHP) now java. I went on ebay and bought a couple of good java books (which retailed at around 70$ a piece) for under 10$ with shipping.


Introduction to java an OOP langauge is what i'm currently reading, it's a good read, doesn't make it feel like you're reading hebrew. I would also recommend googling some stuff, the internet is a fantastic place to find awesome information and tutorials.

Aight thanks hopefully I won't have much trouble understanding this stuff.  I'm very cautious purchasing books cause I don't wanna end up paying a chunk of money for something I can't even understand because it claims to be for beginners.

Sometimes Hebrew's easier to read then Java ;)

I'm trying, but I still can't get sockets working in C++, so if I wish to continue making web-based programs, I must use VB6.

I'd really like to see more bot like applications in C and C++. Visual Basic seems slower to me than the others. Of course I don't know C or C++ so it doesn't matter really. :(

Sockets are easy. I can write 'em decently in x86 assembly, too!

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.
