We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I have for about a year now(I think??) been programming in Processing to understand the basics of coding, the mindset of programming and the underlaying syntax etc.
However, my education, industrial engineering, requires me to transition from Processing to Java and C++. I have never written a word in pure Java. We are to use Eclipse, but I presume that any IDE works.
My question is this: how do I, in the most efficient way, understand the new syntax and the new concepts? I reckon that "just write a lot of code" won't do, seeing as how I am to write a final in basic Java programming in 2 months.
