@katanaryda: Head First Java is a good book for those just learning the language.

@subrec: Also, Android is written in Java, so Android apps should be written in Java.

@subrec: because there are still a ton of jobs where Java developers that make boatloads more money than the admins they apparently piss off (though likely their code needs no such update) still available in the major job markets? Seems reasonable. Plus, most probably develop Java web apps that really won't bother a real admin because the server-side Java updates they need will be infrequent and a real sysadmin will be able to handle it without much issue since it is pretty junior sysadmin level stuff really.

@hardjeans: I didn't want to accept it either, but JavaScript is the future.

@subrec: Uhm...it's Javascript - not Java...

When I clicked the "courses" link, it only showed java programming. Why would anyone want to bother with java? Oh wait, to piss off the desktop admins that need to update java 3 times a week, and keep 7 different versions of java installed on everyone's computer because java programmers can't figure out how to make their software work with every minor update that comes out.

Plus who can resist installing yet another search toolbar every time you need to update java (which as I pointed out is about 3 times a week).

Boo!

Does it have anything on the G Code?

any suggestions on books or courses for me to learn Java?

Thanks!

For some time I have thought of taking programming classes. I will look around this site and maybe get started.

I may have to try this from a different computer... the intro lessons kept forgetting my variables and returning errors despite my code generating the desired results.

this is cool. i like it a lot. Maybe next time, i will be programming for woot. :)

@ryum: Nope - doesn't teach you how to search job listings and won't email companies on your behalf. It will help you get learning on how to develop apps for some platforms like webOS though.

As a programmer, I can say that this is a fantastic tool for learning to code.

@hopec12: Yeah, I thought the same thing - very easy to use.

The lessons are quick, so hopefully they get more posted/developed before too long.

Pretty awesome. Looks like they just launched recently. I like their teaching style. If gently guides you, but also forces you to think things out yourself (the only real way to learn).
