Previously on CS399J...
Hot fun in the summertime. We had another exciting round of
CS399J, but since it was offered in the summer, the class was kind
of small. Luckily, their comments weren't.
- What do you wish you had known before taking this
What is the most important thing you have learned in
- I wish I had known more about exceptions and scopy issues.
- Nothing else.
- Better understanding of Java, and some exposure to Java's GUI
- I wish I had known more about the reads and writers.
- To learn how to program in Java "confortably", i.e. learn the
basics in Java programming. I also wanted to learn how Java is used
to create and develop web applications.
- I wish I was more familiar with Java lanaguage.
- It was only my second programming class since 1992. Fortunately,
it is also my last programming class needed to graduate with a
computer engineering degreee. I expected this and there is nothign I
wish I had known.
- I had taken some Java before, but this definitely filled in a lot
of holes. As far as if I wished I had known anything before...I can't
really think of anything.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone taking this
course in the future, what would it be?
- I learned that a language like Java depends strongly on the APIs
and that the APIs are teh source to go to when you have
- An understanding of object oriented programming
- Broad (large) knowledge, foundation of Java, searching for API and
flexibility of Object Programming.
- The most import and thing I've learned is how to use GUIs. I had
always just ehard about it, but no on ever really explained it to
- The "design structure" of Java Programs. Java is basically a
group of objects working together, and each object (class) has its own
- How the Java language is organized. Class hierarchy. How to use
the different classes. Mustn't forget how Exceptions are used.
- I learned that even an old engineer can learn Java.
- Exceptions! Didn't fully grasp them, but its all starting to come
What made you stay in this course?
- To always look at the assignments again when you have trouble
because there are usually pointers there that you probably looked at
and "oh yearh sure" the first time -- but HELP the eecond time. Also
reviewing the notes wields more infro fore the assignments than you
- Start projects early
- Carefully reviewing handouts and homework assignment before
starting your program assignment.
- Know Java beforehand
- If you want to learn Java programming, then take this course.
- Overview the Java language make sure you can write simple
programs. Be familiar with the Javadocs on Java Language.
- Know Unix
- I am sure many have said this, but... DON'T PUT OFF THE
- Excellent presentation along with interesting topics.
- Projects were good practice
- Instructor and projects
- It was only once a week, and I wanted to learn about GUIs.
- I found this course satisfying my expectations in learning
- Learning the Java language, I found some of the features Java
provides are excellenet, for making certain programming task
- I graduate at the end of next term. Not staying the course would
have been unthinkable.
- Very interesting material. Just wanted to keep learning.
Can't get enough comments? There are lots more comments from previous terms.
