I am a 31 yr old engineer who is just starting to get deep into java. I am going back to school and taking online programming classes at a state uni. I still consider myself a beginner, as I am only on my second semester of java.
However, I do have a good understanding of the basics when it comes to java, and I strive to be a competent programmer someday, so I came here to not only learn from others, but to help out wherever I can.
I've already tried to help out some people in a few places where I can, as I feel the best way for me to get better, in addition to practice, is to help and learn from others when I can.
So, I hope to help guide some newbies in the right direction, while at the same time bettering myself. I can already see a lot of newbs have difficulty grasping the basics (especially syntax + commenting), so I hope I can help, and that I can also receive help when I hit a jam.
