Hi um so Im taking a course in java and im not great at it. Would you mind helping me out with something? I dont know how to do anything with mouse interactions in Console. Im not alowed to use swing so im having trouble finding an answer... Help?
Hi, there! To be honest I’m not sure. Are you trying to do a particular interaction in Console?
I found this thread that may help answer your question, but my followers may have a better answer. If any of you know, you can reply or respond to this user directly! :)
Hi, im an IT student and currently on my 2nd year. Is it possible that I could still learn programming even though we're 2 semesters late? By LATE, what I mean is that we didn't learn anything from our professor for the 2 previous semesters - cause he doesn't know how to teach! - and now that we have Data Structure class, we don't know how to program! Any tips how my classmates and I could cope with this?
Hi! It’s not too late at all. My computer science professor freshman year was an adjunct who majored in geography and didn’t know anything about java! True story.
I think the best thing to do is to talk to your Data Structures professor or TA. Maybe they’re not aware of how much the class knows. That way, everyone can start on a level that they can understand.
As for languages, I recommend starting from C, though everyone has their own preference.
Here’s a list of free sources to get you started: http://programmer-problems.tumblr.com/index
Hope this helps!
Computer science educators have generally gravitated toward teaching programming using easier languages of the day under the assumption that the students would be more receptive to them. But are the students’ long-term interests really served by this approach? Doesn’t using the socalled easier languages for teaching programming amount to teaching serious musical composition with a banjo? Even more fundamentally, what do we mean by teaching programming? It is important to explore these issues given the critical role played by software in all facets of human existence today.
