Still Plugging Away at Java

I know I’ve been terrible at posting on my blog and Twitter. And I know I keep dropping off the face of the earth, but my schedule has been nuts.

I just want you to know, I’m still plugging away at Java. I’ve spent HOURS coding, like its my job.
In the past month, we covered a lot in Object Oriented Java. We dove further into about Encapsulation, Abstraction, Polymorphisim, Interfaces and most recently Java applets.

I must admit, learning about Java applets seems kind of pointless, as they are no longer supported. But, the extra knowledge doesn’t hurt. And it’s fun programming them. I made basic calculator this past week. It only performs 4 operations but, hey it’s a start.

And next week we’ll be covering JavaFX. So, i’ll post more information about that then.

I’ve also been helping my classmates with their code too. Since half my class took the JavaScript version of Intro to Programming, they stated on unequal ground. There were several things covered in the intro class that the Java class, that Intro to JavaScript does not explore. So, I have a group that I work with.

And, I’ve been using Uber Conference to pair program with them. And by helping them, I’m helping myself too! It forces me to really learn the material, and verbalize my whole though process, using the correct terminology.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it. I just wanted to give you a quick update.
