From C++ to Java, whats to come!?

Recommended Posts

Hello, Im currently learning C++, and have been for almost 6 months now, and I am in college. Its not any special college, just a city college, but I will be transfering to a University and majoring in Computer Science. At the university Im transfering to in about 2 and a half years from now, their computer science classes use Java and expect the students to have a prett good knowledge of Java. I've been looking around at some Java tutorials and its looks a little weird, and I've tried Java before at my high school, but didn't have intrest in it. I dunno what it was, but it just wasn't that fun to me. Maybe being a couple reasons, but w/e. For my question, Do you think it will be hard for me to transfer from C++ to Java? I dunno whether to stop C++ and learn Java so Im confortable with it by the time I get to the University (2 1/2 yrs from now), or to keep with C++ and start learning Java at the sametime. Please give me some advice as to what you would do if you were me. Thanks for any Advice or Suggestions.

Not if you've learned programming. If you've only learned C++, though, yes. It will be hard and painful. So start learning programming!

I know about 14 programming languages (some very specialized). I use four or five of them on a daily basis. There's no reason to ever stop learning any of them, nor is there any reason to only know one (or two) languages, if you wish to be a competent software developer.

Keep learning C++, start learning Java, and continue learning programming.

Amen. Switching between different paradigms can be jarring (object-oriented, functional, imperative, logic), but if you understand OO, moving to another OO language should be nearly effortless. It's just syntax, a few idioms, and a standard library.
