1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: I'm a noob to Java, can you point me in the right direction? on: 2012-02-23 13:56:20
Sorry, my brother got onto here and post something, so now I need to cover it up with this Smiley

I know now that I need to start off by not using an IDE, so now can you recommend some books and tutorials? Thanks Smiley

Most Mac users I know swear by TextMate, but the best text editor is the one you're most comfortable with.

Library copies of books tend to be really obsolete.  From what I can see from the Amazon summaries of Java for Dummies, the only one that I'd even bother with is the most recent edition (previous editions were using JCreator of all things).  You're probably better off following the java tutorial trails on oracle.com


The one in the library happens to be the newest one, so I went and picked it up. Also I checked out the Java tutorials on oracle.com, and it seemed to be very complicated and sophisticated. I looked around in Java for Dummies and it was a lot easier.

Also, Head First Java seems to be very old, so is it suitable for learning the most up to date version of Java?

You're all saying 'Don't use IDEs yet, use simple text editors.' I have a Mac with 4text editors installed; TextWrangler, TextMate and a Mac port of Notepad++   and the default TextEdit. Which would you say is best to use? Also, I found a copy of Java for Dummies in a library, would you say that is any good to use?

Thanks Smiley

Thanks, is Java for Dummies any good? Also, for a basic IDE, are TextMate or TextWrangler any good (I have a mac)?

Hello all Smiley

I'm new to Java, and I want to learn, where are some good resources to learn from, whether they are free or paid, I don't mind. You should tell me what makes each resource good as well. My friend says I should watch YouTube videos by 'thenewboston', what do you think of him, because I read somewhere that he isn't very good. Also, if there is a way (tell me how), I will make a poll on this thread to gather my results and so that other noobs like me can see. Eventually I want to work with LWJGL also link me to resources that will teach me to use that too Smiley

Thanks Smiley
