I'm OA-OD-JD1, which stands for Operation-A Operations Designer Java Developer 1. I'd rather you didn't ask . Anyway, I've registered here today because I'm about to embark on a year full of Java development! I'm going to practice my skills, or lack there of, everyday (where possible) for a whole year. I'm going to be looking to study software development in university in the next couple of years, so I thought I might as well get a head start. Why Java? Well, I've heard many good things about the language. I do have some experience in other languages, but I want to go down the Java path. I'd like to pursue a professional software development career, specialising in Java development. That's where all the money is, so I'm told . And I'm definitely not just in it for the money! I'm determined to become an experienced developer because it's something I'm passionate about.
Having started virtually today, it sure is going to be interesting to see how far I can get in a year. I've removed all distractions from my life so that I can focus on the important things (such as practicing my skills as a Java developer). I came here to enhance my learning rate over the next year and I hope that one day I'll be able to give back to the community.
That's about all. I look forward to getting to know some of you!
