5 Important Tips on How to Learn Java Programming Language Easily & Quickly
Learn Java, Learn how to program in Java.
As a person who loves programming, I have a special love for Java Programming. Base on my experiences in this programming language here are 5 important tips that you need to know while learning Java and other programming languages.
5 important Tips on Learning Java Programming and Other Programming Languages
1. Know the basic
- It is just normal to be difficult if you are really a beginner in the sense that you did not use any programming language in the past. You, basically, start from scratch. To avoid waste of time and dizziness while looking at a foreign code know the Java Predefined Keywords and its function in Java Programming. It will save yourself from asking “what the hell is this?”. Once you have become acquainted with the basics, the following steps will be easy for you.
2. Practice Coding Immediately
- Practice to code what you have learned. It is not necessarily to be long and complicated, just code those simple problems in your java book that is suited for a beginner, like entering a number and outputting what you entered or much simpler- outputting a certain word or sentence using the System.out.print() predefined function. The purpose of this is for you to be able to see how it works. Whenever you see a complete code (working code) on your textbook, test it on your compiler, this will help you to familiarize each codes functions. When you feel you really want to solve a problem and provide your own codes then read the following step.
3. Set Your Algorithm Carefully
- Delving a bit deeper in Java Programming at least requires you to know and how to use the Java Basic Flow of Controls and Branching Mechanism.
Those are required basic knowledge for you to solve a problem, but when you already know this then it is the time to have your own Java Project.
In solving a problem, you must set your algorithm first. That is making a step by step approach on how you solve the problem and output the necessary output it needed. It does not really mean that if your program runs, you are already done. No, what you need is to see its output first and to be able to rate if your program is correct, test it with any possible output it may give. After a series of tests, if it gives the correct output that the problem needs then, congratulation but if not, you need to check your algorithm again and try to trace your code. If the problem persists, the next step will be helpful to you.
4. Tracing Your Codes on Paper
- This is really a great help for beginners and the best way on becoming an expert. It is just like you are “thinking like the compiler”. Understanding your code on paper gives you hard time at first but when you are into it, you will be a fast learner in no time.
5. Read Any Sources for Java Programming as many as possible
- There are many sources that can be found using the net and in the library. If you are really determined to learn as a student or as a person who is just fascinated with Java, then you can find unlimited sources on the web. Join forums concerning this language, or sites that primarily offer Java Programmers, whether an expert or a beginner, to be their members. It does not hurt at all when you try to sign up on those site using your other email account instead of that personal ones. Just try it and you will see the advantages it will bring you.
