I am curious as to how/where everyone learned JAVA? So far, I have confined myself to books, the web, and this forum for learning. The university in my city has a class, but in looking at the curiculame (sp?) I could probably teach the class. Sadly that is not a praise to myself, but an insault to the class. So if anyone cares to share any information with me, please do. ------------------ Happy Coding, Gregg Bolinger
Tried the 'Teach yourself Java in 21 days book' several years ago (about 4 or 5). It was my first programming book since high school which was back in 84. Needless to say it didn't go well. Then took a class in college last spring and used quite few other books to prep for the exam. The class definately helped establish a good knowledge base so that I an read more books on my own. Dave
Yeah - I had those same classes. Of course they took so long to get into that I was certified before I got into the second class . Mostly read a lot of books, and did alot of practice stuff. Then I FINALLY got assigned to a project in Java and got some experience. Not nearly enough yet though. I have hopes of getting onto a new project sometime after the first of the year - so cross your fingers for me.

I have several projects. I am all full of good ideas. But I wish someone would pay me to work on them. I have decided that I am probably a better developer than a programmer. ------------------ Happy Coding, Gregg Bolinger
I had to help a batch of University students to learn Java for their exams - So, started learning, practicing and teaching Java- With some C++/Oops knowledge, mastering Java was very easy. Cleared SCJP in that flow, and I must say, it really paid back all dividents.
i started with C++ in school 2.5 years ago and started teaching myself Java last year. i started the Cattle Drive back in April and it has helped a lot. i have been rewriting my old C++ assignments along the way and also writing some programs for work/co-op credit. however, i am far from "good" at this point. i can write pretty much whatever i want to, but i doubt that i am upto professional standards as far as my style goes.

I started C++ and then Visuall J++ at NIIT. Then went for a short corporate training and learned Sun Java 2 there, where i immediately joined as a faculty....then proceeded to clear SCJP and now thinking of SCWCD with some projects. Liked the language very much and hope it'll continue to conquire....

Read a java book one weekend and started coding. of course the fact that i was a C++ developer before that and knew Smalltalk very well helped. later i studied for Sun Java P2 certification and that really helped to improve.
