Yay! A bit of accomplishment for me, I just finished your Java course. Fairly good course by the way, good job team. But that’s just learning. For me to become a true programmer, I of course need to go beyond just learning and I need to start coding my own projects. So before I go on my road to become fluent in Java, I have a couple of questions:
1.)What exactly does the codecademy java course cover? I mean, I know that you probably can’t cover every little aspect of the language, I understand. However, is there a way to know if the course is just a general overview (the basics) of Java or is it pretty in depth of the language? I’m just curious if I should try to pick up some other courses or videos before I try to start on my own.
2.) Once I get to this “on my own” point, what are some good ways to actually know how to apply Java to write my code. I remember a newsletter about TDD, so I’ll defintley keep that in mind. However, I was wondering if someone could please tell me about some more principles to help me along my coding journey. External links, self-experience, etc. Any kind of guidance is appreciated.
*Side note: I know Python, but I’m looking for bigger and more powerful languages, such as Java. I will come to codecademy first for my python and Java needs, and as you can tell, I’m mainly focused with the latter as of now. In the future, I do plan to try and learn c#, but that will have to be beyond codecademy of course. I know python, but haven’t been too concerned in becoming fluent with it. So just a note that I’m mainly worried about Java for now, but I may come back with python concerns later on.
