Okay. All I wanted to do is make writing web pages better, so I began to learn Java. I already use HTML/CSS and wanted to learn the next step.
I have already invested a fair amount of time learning Java. I enjoy Java. I have a very long way to go.
After learning such a language, I wanted to get up to speed with JQuery, then maybe PHP. That is my kinda learning plan.
Thank you thank you thank you
Thankyou so much Kor!
That answer means so much to me! I feel confident now of what I should be doing. I am really grateful.
I am disappointed that I was on the wrong track by starting to learn Java, yet then again by doing so I have gained an understanding of how (the basics of) programming works, if/while/for statements and methods etc, which I am sure will be useful down the track. And at some point I will return to Java, as you point out it will be useful for server side, but at the stage I am it is not the best use of my time. :( I will miss it lol.
I was aware JQuery was an extension/library of a language but thought it was Java and I'm glad you set me straight on that too.
Again, I can't tell you how glad I am that you answered in the manner you did, thankyou. :D
