    Default Hi to everyone

    I'm David. I'm currently still learning how to program in Java. I took a course on this about 11 years ago, but never got to finish it because I have to get a job to support myself. I got a job programming in Powerbuilder 7 and SQL, and as database administrator using Sybase ASE. Did that for 3 years, then went into Sales and Marketing for the last 7 years. I haven't done an ounce of programming since then.

    It's has always been one of my worst frustrations to have never had completed that training course, so I am getting back into it now. I quit my job in Sales last March 2010 and have gone into the food business with my wife, but I think it's time I go do my own thing.

    I hope anyone here can help me start off my own online programming career. I really need the job and the money right now, as I have two kids to feed and debts to pay.

    Anyway, this my story. There's my motivation and I'm desperate to get things started.

    Hi tyraelphoenix,

    It's excellent that you're finally pursuing something you've always wanted to do. You'll learn a lot here. I'd love to refer you to our Java Programming Careers site, but I guess that's not going to be an option until you can learn more about the language. Would you mind getting a job doing what you did with SQL a while ago? You could practice your Java skills at the same time.

    Anyway, I wish you all the best mate! Welcome.

    Hi OA.OD.JD1,

    Thanks for the offer and the warm welcome. I wouldn't mind doing a little SQL while learning my Java. It would be ok to do a not so urgent Java project as well while learning. I seem to learn better on-the-job and doing what is usually the tasks to be done than reading about concepts.

    What do you have in mind?

    @tyraelphoenix: It's good to see one more Java learner. Well, to get start with Java, i will simply recommend you to go for sun java tutorials Java Tutorials Learning Paths

    And practice as much as you can, in order to strengthen your concepts. Good Luck.

    Hi mate,

    I see where you're coming from, however, you may find yourself out of your depth if you jump straight into a professional Java development job. Are you sure you think you'd be able to pick everything up so quickly?

    Hi JD1,

    I do realize that I may not be able to get myself up to speed right away on a professional level, so I'm hoping someone more experienced would be willing to take me under their wing and coach me while I'm also helping them out on their projects...kinda like an on-the-job training, if you will.

    Not sure what the likelihood of you finding someone like this is, but by all means look around. You can get all the help you need here.
