are you like going to send us lessons


I'll give you the resources and tell you how to go about it and what to do. Like I just sent out an email with what sections you are supposed to read from a online textbook I linked you to. I'll also give you same code and probably skeleton programs for you to complete for assignments. You will send the assignments to me and I'll check them. I don't know if anyone wants anything graded so I'll just send them back with comments/ corrections or send you a comment on how you did.

chat with each of us personally?


Unless you need specific help with understanding something or an assignment I won't be talking to you for extended period of time.

Also I hope everyone got the email that I sent yesterday with all the resources. I'm not used to emailing large groups of people. Ace and kyhree should have them since I just replied with the same thing I sent.

Depends on how big it is. But they will probably be pretty small so maybe a week.

Next language won't take nearly as long. Since you build on the base of what you know and not create the base which requires more effort.


Very true. I started on a bit of JavaScript yesterday. I already know ActionScript 3.0, and since they're both based on ECMAscript it all is very easy to grasp.

As for C++, I did some research and it turns out a lot of stuff is written in C, so I might infact start with that instead, although I don't like just suddenly stopping like that

When we finish the passage(s), should we wait until you give us the "homework" or should we just let you know we are ready to advance?

Just read what was designated. Though I am nervous that the group email I sent to some of the people didn't actually reach them. I will just re-post it here and future ones along with it.

Hello friends, programming 101 has started there have been a few minor changes but they have been oriented on making this course easier to teach and understand. Like switching books and dropping eclipse for Jcreator.

Jcreator: Install http://tinyurl.com/d7ogmon (cnet direct download link)

I included a tester file that you can open in Jcreator either go file -> open then go to the directory you have it in or just drag and drop it in the Jcreator window and it will open. To create your own file go to file -> new -> file -> Java class, then name it and set the location. I would recommend changing the location since it's default is set as the root of your primary hard-drive. My recommendation is to make a new folder programming 101 in your desktop or main folder and store your stuff there. But that is your decision. Also the file is a .java file so you can also set it to open with Jcreator.

Once you have the file open read it over and run it. By going to run -> run project. You can also play around with the file.

Book: http://math.hws.edu/javanotes/ read section 2.1 and 2.2 for monday and look at the file I have attached to this email.

Assignment 1 will be given on monday and will involved writing a small piece of code. It will be based on 2.1 and 2.2.

If you have a question you can either post in the AG forum or email me personally. But if you are stuck with something, it is likely that others are as well so consider just posting on the AG forum.

Just wondering, were we supposed to get an assignment today? If it's just a matter of not getting around to it, that's fine, if not, then I haven't got it.

are we supposed to get an assignment today?


Never specified a timezone or if it follow your mortal clocks. My "today" lasts from 6 am to 6 pm PST it's only 9:30 pm or 21:30 here. :P

Anyway the assignment. Will be due by Sunday 6:00 PM or 18:00 PST

Make a short program that calculates the Quadratic equation using the values a,b,c which you will instantiate and fill will some numbers. You can assume the user will be reasonable with the inputs (not applicable to real life users are extremely dumb don't trust them, if you let them divide by zero they will). There will be two outputs of the roots that you got in the calculations since quadratic equation has +- applied at the same time thus two answers/roots. The form of the output will be,

The first output is, "X"
The second output is, /Y/

This assignment will also require you read Section 2.3

K maybe it's just me cause my comps brand new and such but what exactly do we need to install besides Jcreator to run the tester program cause I tried to run it and it asked me about a JDK which I then thought I proceeded to download but it still won't compile
