    Default programming newbie

    Hey I'm Steven I'm a total noob to programming and so far am struggling and don't like it at all. I have to use eclipse, blueJ, and greenfoot for my 2 programming classes. I am only taking these classes because they are required. Unfortunately I have no interest in programming what so ever. My interest lies in electronics. I'm here to try and get some help and work my way through these courses.

    Usually this forum is just for saying hi and making an introduction, not for asking any technical questions.

    You will be surprised by the kind of electronic items which run Java in your every day life.. TVs, Parking Meters, Blu-ray players, Playstations, Cars..

    If you take time to learn Java, with your love of electronics, who knows what you could create in the future!

    One thing I have always wanted to get into is robotics. There are loads of Java robotics websites if you Google it.
    I think if you read up on Java, your attitude towards it may change

    Regardless, welcome to the forums.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.

    I once heard an anecdote that Java was so named because it ran on everything from supercomputers to coffee makers. I don't think that's actually the reason behind the name, but I think it's funny.

    And yeah, the LeJos stuff is really neat: LeJOS, Java for Lego Mindstorms

    Be prepared for a lot of frustration, but when you figure a problem out the reward will be even greater.
