Hi, I'm doing the intro thing.
I never really liked Java because the OO concepts were too weird and the syntax too verbose. I have avoided it for as long as possible, but now I have to learn as part of my degree course. I can see now Java is a pretty big deal. Personaly I never thought it would last, but I was wrong.
Anyway, learning it seems to be going well so far. My experience of other languages seem to be helping with that.
