    Cool Hey h3w0 here

    Hey,
    My name is Aymen, I live in the u.k and I am 15 years old. I have been programming since I was around 10 with languages such as HTML CSS JavaScript Small basic. And until now I'm not very sure what I want to learn. I don't know whether to continue my knowledge in the web design and developing area or go into android and java developing. Any help would be very nice. I also want to make friends that I have more in common with e.g coding. I also have become very lazy, I 'bought' (torrent loool) a book on-line , Java for dummies and I also have a book at home that I actually did buy and I have done the very few steps to begin learning even the basic java techniques such as installing everything such as Eclipse etc, but I'm just too lazy constantly finding myself playing on the Xbox 360 on the PC or just watching Youtube Videos or making them. (Youtube : MinorLushy).
    I would very much appreciate if anyone could give me any help on how to get my life as a programmer on track because I am not happy with the life I'm leading now.
    Again I would be very interested in making friends that I could possible help to achieving their goals as well as mine.

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Others here, the non-students, have said that we're mostly self-taught. We may have had some formal education in programming a loooooong time ago, but since then we've been self-motivated to keep learning, and we've most likely learned Java - and maybe other languages - on our own. That motivation comes from within and is usually fed by a curiosity to understand how things work; in this case, how computers work and can be made to do what we want them to do. Those of us who fit in that group do not easily understand someone who doesn't have that self motivation, and if you don't have it, we can't give it to you.

    If you don't like your current situation and think programming may improve or give you opportunities to change your situation, then I suggest that potential should be the motivation you need to not waste more of your time on entertainment than absolutely necessary to stay sane. I don't think you need to focus on one specific aspect at this point. Branch out in all directions and just learn all you can, spending time on those aspects you enjoy and are good at, working to be even better, maybe even THE BEST.

    However deeply involved in learning Java you decide to be, you're welcome here, and good luck!

    Thanks guys and @GregBrannon I do have the motivation and curiosity to programme and learn more than you probably think but I find me self finding excuses and doing other things that progressing in my journey to "catch them all". However I would still like to have friends just so when the time comes I can be there for them and them for me.
    Cheers again for all the support.

    Thanks, so where can I find examples of peoples work and games. I just want to see what the potential of Java programming can do and what it is capable of. So any big time game that I may know off that are built with Java, because I did a quick Google search and it came up with all these scientific programmes made with Java and I'm all for that but I'm not going to spend ages learning the language if that's all its capable of.
