Hello, good day to all! I am taking a one on one tutor. My tutor tells me that I have 2 months as algorithms and structures lesson, prelude to JAVA programming proper. I am just excited, do you mind if I ask your opinions if how long would it take for me a JAVA lesson proper from the start until I will be able to do simple coding? I would greatly appreciate your inputs. By the way I am planning to do 6 hours a day lesson from Monday to Friday.

Thanks again!

Isagani,
It depends on what you mean by simple coding. A program that just has if statements and loops, you'll be able to do in way under a week. But real programs have more than that.

Depends.  Do you know any programming language now?

No, basically from zero, I am doing algorithms now. Thanks

If I remember correctly, it took me a couple of months before I could write anything "useful" when I first learned a programming language (that was 25 years ago!)  Some people really excel at coding; other people have a harder time thinking like a programer.  I would say to give yourself two or three months at least.  But better yet, allow yourself learn at your own pace.

Welcome to the Ranch

I presume you are a student? The course will usually be structured so you will be busy most of the time simply doing the coursework. You might do well to work hard at the course and leave the Java® until you have finished algorithms. Also: have you got enough money to pay somebody as a tutor?

Thanks Knute!

@Campbell, I am already a professional, 40 years old. I just dreamed of becoming a programmer someday. Now I start my move to getting to my dream. Oh! for the tutor, I have small amount to spare. Thanks!
