My names Paul and i'm from Cheshire, England.
Relatively new to Java and programming as a whole. I have some HTML/CSS knowledge but from watching the New Boston Java tutorials on Youtube this seems to have helped.
I think i've grasped some of the basics of Java from watching his videos but I am now looking to progress further with Java
I have an idea for an App that I would like to make (a relatively simple 10 Stop Filter App for Photographers) but want to start with some basic starter App before juping straight in
I was just wondering what apps are best to start off with when learning Java, looking for some simple apps that don't take much knowledge and then a few that will push me!
I've had a look through the internet for which books may help with learning Java and the one that seems to be most spoken about for starters is the Head First Java book...would anyone agree with this? Or are there any eBooks out there that may well do the job just as well?
Any advice and help will be of great appreciation. And i'm sorry if i've ranted on in a Newbie post with something that, after reading it all back should probably have gone in another section!!
Have you worked your way through the Java tutorial, Paul?
Lesson: Java Applets (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment)
Hello Paul, welcome to the forums.
When you say App, are you referring to a PC application, applet or an Android app?
Manipulating images can be quite task even for experienced programmers.
Seeing as you are new to Java, I suggest you work as hard as possible to grasp the basics.
As always, The Java™ Tutorials is a great place to start.
There are plenty of code examples online which will help you make your idea a reality.
Do a Google search and work your way though other peoples code. You can use this as your frame to create what you desire.
Sorry about the extremely late reply to this and thanks for the information and great links which i've been looking through.
I'm looking at making mobile phone apps with Java, would this be Java Applets, as per the first link, or Java programs?
