re: How I chose a programming language and beat bad habits VIEW POST


I had to learn C++ and Python for my intro classes in school (currently working on my Associates in CS) but when it came time to picking a language to concentrate for the rest of my degree I struggled to pick one. I finally picked Java for many of the same reasons you listed. Learning all the other stuff is easier when you already know the language and don't have to worry about looking up syntax all the time.


Plus Java transitions into other language fairly easy. You won't have an issue going to C#.


That is good to know and makes me feel even better about my choice. I had a hard time going from Python to C++. And I wouldn't say I am proficient in either, but the next year of school will be all in Java if I get all the classes I picked. Learning algorithms, structures, OOP, and all the other stuff will be my primary focus after summer classes.

I hope you get em! Java seems like a great language to learn. You should check out the site hackerrank. They are pretty good at starting you off easy and getting really hard the more you accomplish. They teach you algorithms and structures. Nick White on YouTube also has tons of videos from them.
