My name is Samir Gunic. I don't have any actual programming experience, except for HTML and CSS if you wanna count that in.
I have been using computers for many years. I have an overall general knowledge about pretty much everything that has to do with home computers at a very advanced level, not just the basics. Like, I know how to install OS, format disks, analyze STOP codes, custom build PCs and so on. That's not exactly common computer knowledge.
I am not unfamiliar with soldering iron either. Like, little over a years ago, I managed to fix my Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 disk with the infamous SD15 firmware problem using an RS232 shifter UART kit from SparkFun, some wires and a soldering iron (and PuTTY terminal client).
But I have not developed any actual programming skills as of yet. But I do know pretty much what's it all about. Source code, open source, closed source, IDE, compilers, C++, Java, Python, Lisp, programming paradigms, object oriented programming, etc.
What's the best forum section to put questions concerning use or installation of Java software in?
I will be learning Java and C++ as there is a lot of learning material for these languages. I hope this forum will be a good place to elaborate on different ideas and ask questions about Java programming.
Re: Hello world!
Welcome to the Java Programming Forums.
It's always good to have an advanced knowledge of computers. Logical thinking will help when learning to program.
How are you finding learning Java? Is it as easy/hard as you expected?
For questions concerning use or installation of Java software, I suggest posting here - Java Theory & Questions
I hope you enjoy the site.
