    Java Tuts

    G'day fellas, trying to get back into the swing of things lately and thought I'd pop around and see how everything is going over here.

    I was just wondering if anybody knew of any good java tuts out there as I have to learn the rubbish for college so I thought I'd try get a bit of a head start on it.

    Let us know, Cheers.

    Couldn't agree more, unfortunately I have quite a few java subjects throughout the course

    Java is great when I want to reflect simple things directly into code. It's good that it's still given in university.

    Java is cool when teaching people fundamentals of object oriented programming and programming in general. It's also semantically much more same as more 'useful' languages in production environments (e.g. C++) than lisp/smalltalk.

    As language I don't like it, but the IDE(netbeans)/analysis(ant/junit) tools are excellent. Since oracle took over it's been a bumpy ride though.

    Please tell us of your programming background so I can advice for things to pay attention for.

    Re: Java Tuts

    Thanks guys nice help already. I've done a pretty decent amount of C# and a bit of C++ but haven't used C++ for a fair while now so I'd be pretty rusty also done a good amount of Python which I don't find beneficial for anything and VB.

    I was having a quick read through that site NG and it looked pretty good to me but just wanted to see what somebody who actually knew about the language thought.

    Re: Java Tuts

    You should find java pretty easy to start off as you already have a decent knowledge of c# and the two are fairly similar. It actually surprised me how similar the syntax was in both which caused me to forget what language I was coding in and often mixed the two up.

    Re: Java Tuts

    Yeah I had a couple of quick looks at some sources and noticed the similarities which should give me a good advantage.
