    I am taking website development classes, currently learning CSS, and HTML.


    I also have some experience in C++.


    What do you know?

    I tried learning Java, seems like there were more things to remember than C++.

    I know html and css like the back of my hand. Fairly decent a javascript but I still have a lot to learn. Done a little PHP but nothing worth mentioning. Python is what i've been studying most recently because it seems to be fairly flexible and its a really easy language to follow.


    Heres a little something I made with html, css, and javascript. Nothing too exciting but it was fun making it.

    I want to add an analog clock below it too but that is a little more intensive than I have time for now.

    I could do that with HTML and CSS, I just wouldn't know how to do the Javascript time part. I haven't got that far in my classes yet [​IMG]

    I do a lot of HTML and CSS coding...PHP at times if I know what I am doing. I don't study it, I just learn from what I have seen over time.

    Yeah, the HTML and css for it was easy. What was hard was I wrote all the JS for it but the onLoad element wouldn't work and after a while I gave up on that and had to use some deprecated HTML to get it to load on start.


    Do codecademy to get your feet wet with JS. OOP can be difficult to wrap your head around at first but codecademy definitely helps in the beginning. From there just think of little projects to do and then google around finding what you need and do them. Like the clock, its a pretty simple project and you'll learn quite a bit.

    I did use W3 schools to learn a LOT of Javascript, but I've literally forgot like... all of it.

    Yeah im the same way. The only way to retain that info is to repeatably do it. Even to this day I have to sometimes google html and css stuff just because I can't remember. Javascript I constantly have to google to get shit done.


    Only thing I don't like about W3 is it doesn't seem to show you how to apply the information they give you. They've got great info but if you don't have something to apply it to its just that...information.

    Thats one thing I want to learn too. That, swift, and java but going from web programming to that sort of thing is almost a different world.


    I started learning a little java and was surprised at how similar JS and java are in a lot of ways, mostly the syntax, but java is waaaayyy more about OOP than JS.

    You're right about that. I tried learning Java one time. Didn't like the way every line of code was long.


    C++: cout << "LOL";


    Java: some long line of code

    Yea its just like learning to type you have to do it alot to catch on and once you stop for a long period of time you forget. Thats why i kinda try to keep my touch by doing small projects. Im better at editing information/code than i am working from ground up.




    YA java is the hardest i have a friend that i had as staff on one of my forums hes studing java and he said its hard as hell to learn.

    I used to use Java, but long story short I ended up switching to PHP.
