I've been planning a certain program for 3 years. During these 3 years, I've let thoughts and ideas formulate, and stew, in order for me to critique them properly.
I know precisely what I want this program to do. For almost every function I know what as a client I want it to do, and have a general idea of how it should be set up. I'm not sure if my ideas would be the most streamlined.
I have roughly one month right now to devote full time to my project. After this, I'll be able to spend about 10 hours a week on it.
I want to write the program myself, but I don't know an ounce of programming language.
Considering this, how should I go about starting and working on this project? I know that learning basic Java would help as well as writing little test programs, but my idea has specific needs that I fear test projects will not address.
I'd like to see if I can get this project done on my own by June/July, which gives me 7-8 months.
