How did you learn Java? I just watched the basic and intermediary video tutorials from thenewboston.com and I'm still not 100 percent. I've moved onto the android application development tutorials which deals with a lot of java, and I still don't totally understand it. It started off with a bunch of logic which I enjoyed. As he moved towards GUI, it just turned into a lot of memorization of the built in methods that are part of java. Does this sound familiar?
Other than that, how did you guys learn Java? Any particular video tutorials? A PDF guide? School?
I'm a senior in college and I want to get a job in programming and I'm worried about how good I actually have to be for them to hire me. I majored in IT instead of computer science (first mistake right there,) so I'm trying to catch up by getting as good as I can in a single programming language.
