I am a junior in college studying computer science.
however the school does not teach us how to programs in java at all.

I wanted to ask you how i can get good at java programming and c++ programming?

I can add 8-10 hours of studying but wanted to know what is the best way?

What exactly should i be looking for?

I also want to be able to obtain an internship once i graduate in 2015?

how to get better at fixing errors in my programs aswell?

Internships should be for when you are still in college. They are generally arranged by your university -- with companies working with your university to better train (and get early access to) the students. Think of it as summer jobs (sometimes unpaid), with a training component.

The university better trains their students. The companies get early access to inexperience (and lower paid) talent pool, and be able to determine the quality of that pool. And the students gets training and a summer job. Everyone wins.


Anyway, upon graduation, you should be looking for a job (not an internship). And BTW, if you did good on your internship, many times, you get an offer of a job upon graduation too, which is nice.

Ricardo, You say the school doesn't teach Java programming. What courses are you taking in computer science at college? Are you studying other programming languages?

Ricardo, You seem to be pretty ambitious and good at learning things on your own. My advice to everyone in your position is to get as much practice writing code as you can (by making up your own programming tasks, if necessary) and to visit user groups in your area whenever they're available. Networking with professionals is always good, and attending meetings/talks/lectures to learn about current trends is always a plus.

Ricardo, When you write "if i were to make video teaching programming" I'm assuming that you're talking about making your own instruction videos (on YouTube, etc.) My response is a resounding "Yes." Teaching something to other people is one of the best ways to reinforce your own knowledge. (I know this from lots and lots of experience.)
