    Default Need Help With First Time Program

    Hi Guys,

    (I really hope I'm in the right spot)

    I have no code yet however as I am a beginner I really need some help to be pushed in the right direction.
    I am a Cricket die hard, and I write for a Fantasy Cricket Blog.

    For those who don't know in the Cricketing world there are fantasy competitions where players assume the role of a 'Manager' and select a team from the players who are in the competition. The players are given a money figure depending on their player rating. ie. a player with a rating of 8/10 will be worth $150000 with a player rating off 4/10 will be $40000 and so on.

    What I am after is to get a program written which will take into account individual career stats and money value to assist players in building the ultimate team. All the hard data is already written I just need assistance in writing the code from there I'll enter in all the player data and away you go.

    I was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction to do this?

    Again I hope I'm in the right page for this type of help, If not let me know and I can get the post moved.

    Thanks Guys!

    Rob

    This is your first program. Do you know anything about programming in any language? Do you know about variables, assigning them values, operators, loops or branching statements? With no idea what you know, pushing you in the right direction is impossible, though I suspect the right direction for you is to start at the beginning. Get a Programming 101 Book, in Java if that's the language you'd like to start with, and start at page 1.

    Hi Greg! Thanks for the reply. I do have a basic knowledge in java. In fact I used to program in it a few years ago so I'm sure once I get going I'll be okay. I suppose the reason why I mentioned above what I am planning on making is to give people an understanding off where I want to go. I understand its going to take time to get there and I'm not going to get 'free code'. I was after some pointers to get me going.

    So the first few chapters of the 101 book should be easy for you. Also, refer to the Java Tutorials when you need to see the material from the horse's mouth or need another perspective. Come here when you need help.
