Hey guys, keep in mind, I couldn't find a ideal place to put this thread in the sections, so I decided that this section would be the best.
I've been studying Java for about half a year now, I figured the best way now to get more motivation is to speak with others. I understand forums are a great place to communicate with others, but does anyone know an area where I could join a "team", or even just communicate with others who are in a similar situation as myself via voice chat? Is there some type of website out there that has people who are looking for the same thing I am?
I'm not necessarily looking for a team that has a project they are working on (although, I wouldn't mind helping if it wasn't past what I already know, and I could contribute to the product).
Then how about a school group? I would think there would be others your age interested in learning, probably others already doing so, who would like to get together, and your age group has more time to devote to projects for the sake of learning. 15 is not too young to drive the formation of such a group, either within a school or across schools either one. I was president of a chess club at 15.
If you don't go to a brick-and-mortar school, then perhaps a home-school group of some sort? If you can establish that the people you are talking to are, in fact, your age group and local, then the social networking applications available make it easy to keep in contact with them and still stay safe. Heck, we did it with telephones with dials.
You learn how to close your eyes and tell yourself "this just isn't really happening to me." Tiny ad:
