    Will Java make things easier?


    Just a quick question while I'm on break here at this impossible-to-understand
    2nd day of my 5-day Java class.

    Once I'm finished learning Java (megamoons after this class!), will the knowledge
    you've learned in Java pay off in other ways? I mean, will it make other
    languages a lot easier to pick up on, or will learning other languages still
    be like learning something all over again?

    Thanks,

    Jay

    In my opinion, java and C++ at the barebones level are like twin sisters
    almost. VB, however, is another animal entirely. It would have been much
    better to learn C++ before java. Learning java first, to me, is a little
    like putting the cart before the horse. If programming is something that
    runs in your veins, then it is best to learn it from a good book. Also,
    programming is part learning by doing, and how many programs you do from
    how many chapters of the book will largely define your worth as a beginning
    programmer, IMHO.

    So how is MI? Wish I was there.

    Anyway, I would say it will help you pickup other languages if you really
    understand programming and all that goes with it. Syntax/IDES/and some other
    things will still have to be learned. Was it the best one to start with,
    I don't know and I don't think that was your question.
