Java Programming for Begginers
Since I was 15 years old, I knew what I wanted to do once I left high school – I remember it like it was yesterday. We had a trip to one of the universities to look at possible courses we could take once we graduated from high school, and my interest in computers since I was young made it a no brainer. When we got into one of the computer science classes, they showed us how to program a simple pop-up box, take input and get an output – the old “Hello World” tutorial. The geek in me could not believe how amazing and yet simple it was to do and it was then that I decided I wanted to become a programmer.
Few years down the line, I had finally registered for my first year in college to major in Computer Science for Java Programming. To be honest, the only experience I had with actual coding had more to do with HTML, CSS and a little bit of PHP here and there – but never something as complex as Java. So I decided I needed to look for some tutorials on Java and finally found a great channel on YouTube that helped me quite a bit during my first semester in college for free.
The guy who was providing the tutorials was Bucky and his method of teaching actually got me through my first semester of college with much ease. I’m not the sort of person who likes to read that often, so the video tutorials helped a lot, and did I mention it was free?
