Previously on CS410J...
Okay, third time's the charm, right? Well, I'll let my
students be the judge of that...
- What do you wish you had known before taking this
What is the most important things you have learned in CS410J?
- Using vi editor and familiar with computer science
department's computer facility.
- A little more about some of the Java classes. More unix
command. Some simple problems that took me too long to figure
out was compiling java source code when they are in two different
- I want to know about Java language and apply it into
- Nothing comes to mind... I don't feel like I was missing
any special skills/knowledge.
- More experience with GUI programming.
- I wish to take course of GUI and networking.
- Use java to do some funny stuff in internet.
- Nothing in particular. Aside from the fact that there is
so much to learn about Java the Language. [Is that like Jabba
the Hut?] I felt equipped enough to get through the
assignments. Oh wait, I'd like to knoe more about networking,
security, cryptography, and web servers. Maybe UML,
- I wish I'd know Unix, C++.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone taking this
course in the future, what would it be?
- Having broad knowledge of java to allow me to understand
lots of aspects of java. Having deep java programming skill to
allow me to apply my learning in work. (I understand I still
have lots to learn.
- Using and becoming familiar with some of the java
classes. Using the java API was help and being able to maneuver
around unix. I didn't have one particular one, I thought they
were all important.
- Understand the Java language. It is great, I like the
programs. It makes me understand it more.
- Apart from basic Java programming skills, a firmer grasp
of solving programming problems using an object oriented
approach. Although I haven't started it yet, learning how to
develop GUI applications should also come in handy.
- Learning how to use javadocs and the libraries
- Many things you can do with Java (objects), OO-design,
- I like this class very much. Though many homeworks. I
learned what is abstract and interface do, what is some class
has some build-in method like sorting. In which just write the
"comparable" and don't explicitly class it, but is works. I
believe I made good start in Java from this class.
- That Java is a very robust language, exciting, easy to
work with if you know the rules and your way around the Java
Docs. There are so many classes and features.
- I think it's OOP, and using Java is so easy and
What made you stay in this course?
- Take it.
- 1) To be familiar with some of the java classes
especially the ones in java.io, java.util, and java.lang. 2)
Know how to compile java source code when you need source code
from two different directories.
- If you want to know about Java, take Dave's class, it has
very cool programs for you to learn, don't be scare.
- Make sure you have some prior experience in the concept
of object oriented programming (experience gained from CS202 was
useful). Start your program assignments early.
- Make sure you are familiar with OOP.
- Read a lecture before class, so it will be easy to
follow. Use reference material -- Java is too broad. Start to
do project in next day after class.
- This class covers wide range of Java concepts, provide
many useful and easy-to-understand examples, class performance
is good for helping student to get known about some thing which
is looks hard to image. Showing how to run some examples at
class is good for me get immediate understanding and further
follow up next lecture.
- Bone up on structured programming and networking
- Pay attention to lecture and example codes, it will help
- 1) The curriculum, 2) Instructor knowledge of Java's
latest technology and programming skill. I had seen some
professor using the same old material and not impressive
programming skill. 3) The instructor's enthusiasm of teaching
- I think java is a powerful tool and there is a lot of
information on it. Basically, I wanted to challenge
- For my cs degree. And I want to know What is Java? Is
it a good language to user? How it different with others
- I felt like I was learning something useful. The guy
instructing the course was enthusiastic about the subject
matter, and that enthusiasm tended to rub off on me.
- I can use this now at work. (Actually, need to very
- Power of Java. I would probably use Java in my future
work. Interest in OO programming.
- Can learn more useful Java knowledges. Some homeworks
are hard, fortunately there are some examples provided, I can
manage to go on.
- I want to learn Java well enough to use it in my job.
Plus, it's an interesting subject and well presented.
- I paid the tuition already. Moreover, this course is
If you think that's bad, you should hear what my students said
in the spring.
