lazy person

Post by isapiens »

Ok, this is gonna be a retarded post. Here it goes, i am trying to learn java... I read all the basic concepts, about how java works, objects, classes, messages and stuff like that. Now what would be the next step? I realize all the information is on internet... all the classes and their methods are described in detail, etc. But i am lazy :/ Basically what i am asking is.. how could i make this process a little bit less boring for myself. Reading about a certain class and method isnt really that much fun, plus i dont memorize everthing that i read.
ok i need some supportive words and stuff, give me doctor Phill session lol

Start small. I wasn't automatically a php master, i took small steps. I started with a small validation form, and went from there.

With java, learn a few functions, make a couple things with it and move on, don't try and remember too much.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

You get bored with it quickly?
Okay, then..read about it until you're bored...then do something else and go back to it later that day, or the next day.

That way is working pretty well for me, so far.

Simply make application...

Some ideas for project(I suggest them bcz I did them in class and it was fun):

In order of ease:

#1- Try to make a program that will roll x dice of y face z times. Show the result in a console.

#2- Try to make some class and use their constructor. Experiment with heritage and the super("") constructor.( in class we were doing something about bandit and monster...)

#3- Remember what you did in #1? use this to make an applet that will show the result in a graph( of any type you want)

#4- Make a web server (it's not that hard, try it :wink:)

#5 Make an simple application that will show a " . " each second and when you press q, it quit. You need to be able to speed up the speed it show the . by pressing + and - ( Google Thread if you don't know how to do.)

If you need more ideas, just ask



:wink:

I do like that suggestion though, Necrix!

Definetely will follow your advice nerdzoncrack.
You cant learn without actually coding the examples: practice, practicec and practice

Well personally, i dont know java but generally talking about any programming language, all you need to do is just explore the power of the language, i mean just realize how powerful the language is and what all magic can be done even with the basics, that will keep you glued to your seat..
Like i dont know whether its correct but a friend of mine was telling me that nowadays they use java in microwaves!! Isnt that cool??

And last but not the least, as you already said practice practice and practice, you will reach a stage when you will be able to do almost any thing with it which you never thought
