Beyond Java 101 lesson 2 and 3
Posted on Jun 2, 2017 by Administrator
If you haven’t read my other articles on how I started learning Java you might want to read them here. Why am I doing this? When I started Techworld Code School I had been putting off learning to code not because I didn’t have the time but I thought it was way too difficult if not impossible! I was wrong and I am glad that I took the plunge. I am now on lesson 8 and we are now getting into the deep world of Java. Some days what the things I am learning are so difficult and I wonder if I will ever be able to apply them in real life! But as I read more and open my Netbeans IDE and try them out 45 to 60 minutes a day, I smile afterwards as the concepts sink in.
I am particularly happy with my progress not because I have grasped everything but I am learning how everything works and piecing everything together as I go. Don’t be fooled, it is not a stroll in the park at all. That I have passion and determination to see this through helps. As someone who has always wanted to program in order to solve some of my day to day issues and challenges I face my in general, I agonised over which language to start with until I stumbled on Java through a visiting software engineer who I met at work.
I am very analytical and methodical when faced with a problem and that seems to be a very important aspect of computer programming. I also read widely and so I am constantly stumbling on things that make it easier for me to learn and develop what I think is a skill worth having: software development.
He suggested that I take up Java and linked me with an equally enthusiastic teacher Sunil another software engineer who I now spend 4 hours a week with online learning Java piece by piece. What I like about Sunil’s teaching method is he doesn’t assume prior knowledge of computer science. He doesn’t know it but I am reading whatever I can behind his back about computer science and software engineering methods. DZONE has been one of my frequent reference points, together with StackOverflow. I look forward to my weekly assignments because, I get to experiment and put into practise the things I have learnt. I stumble upon new concepts which I have no choice but to research on to make the program work.
