Programming? - January 9th 2017, 07:34 PM

Anybody here into programming? I'm just starting to teach myself Python. I think it would be a good thing to at least know a little bit of coding. Anyone else?

I'm not really an expert on programming I did once buy books of Java script but I never read them due to my bloody ADHD lol. have you considered looking in to classes at your local school or college? Have you considered YouTube tutorials? I'm sorry I'm not much of an expert in this area I do hope you find the help your looking for!

I was in a Computer Science program in high school. I remember in the Computer Science 1 class we literally spent 3 months learning the ins and outs of a TI84 Plus calculator. It quite fun to have the calculator ask you for the values and it just tells you the answer immediately without you needing to enter each step. Not the point, but just a benefit. I do have a bit of a background in programming, though. Currently I like to refresh my knowledge (or gain new knowledge for that matter) with free online open courses.

I'm still definitely not an expert. But feel free to shoot any questions towards me and I just might know something useful!


“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

I wouldn't say I'm 'into' programming but I do Java as required by my university course. A few of my lecturers have mentioned the popularity of Python as it's quite simple to use in comparison to Java.

Although not a programming language and actually an operating system, I also work with UNIX which often requires me to do bash scripting and can often involve things such as For loops which are common in Java. Another I'm required to learn has been JavaScript to accompany my work involving HTML and even that framework has similarities to all the other languages and such that I've used.

In the past I've worked with Visual Basic and XNA though that was quite some time ago. My Java lecturer made a very good point to us which was that once you learn one programming language and you learn it well, it's a lot easier to learn others. This is primarily due to the may similarities between each of the languages and the more I have come to know, I've certainly found this to be true.

My brother did work with Visual Basic, Java and LUA before going to university for around 3-4 years beforehand and when coming to learn other languages such as C# it was a lot easier for him. Although I don't know much about C#, from the time I've seen my brother programming there's a lot of similarities in that to the ones I do know, too.

Overall it's definitely a plus if you're interested in learning a programming language before taking a CS course.
