I am taking a Java Programming course online, and this is the place I was told I would be getting alot of my help from. I was also instructed to introduce myself, so here ya go:

I am a student in between universities, meaning I don't have one. But it's not too bad, I've been trying to slowly teach myself about the Android OS, and very quickly I realized I was going to be severely limited without any programming knowledge. This is my first programming course, but I am very adept at finding a solution to my problems, and have a history in web development, so I am familiar with writing the code, just a different language

I turn 21 in a few weeks, and I will assuredly fail to turn in some assignments for a couple days leading up to and possibly after I turn 21 ;) I have always been the "tech support" guy for my family and friends, and absolutely live and breathe technology. I have never been so passionate about something that I knew so little about, as I am with Android, and communication technologies in general. My only real previous passion was baseball, and I knew the sport inside and out. So, this is unfamiliar territory for me, and I can't wait to start exploring!

I'll be looking forward to working with you guys as I progress through the class!

Welcome to JavaRanch! Feel free to ask any questions you have about programming in Java here. We also have a forum about Android for if you have questions that are specifically about Android.

I've tried programming for the iPhone myself in Objective-C, and for Android in Java, and I like Android much better for programming than the iPhone.
