I'm enrolled in a programming class (Java) at my college. It has been difficult, to say the least. I want to continue in computer science, but I really need to improve my Java programming skills over the summer. I'm thinking about the cattle drive, without having looked at any other alternatives. Could someone/anyone give me their current opinion about the program and advice for this newby?
You won't find a better resource when it comes to learning java (or anything that you apply this model to). You'll be tasked with completing a number of assignments meant to expose you to the nitty-gritty of java programming. It won't be easy, but you'll walk away with experience that you won't get in school. You won't be handed any answers in this spirited environment, as a matter of fact, the only way out is through a sheer will to succeed. You will have grown both as a person and a programmer when you get through this fantastic journey.
