hey, i search the NG BBS and i didn't find any java or j/s mains. So nobobdy has done this before. Anyway i have a lot of tutorials that i know could be done. This wasn't a bad idea and if you help out it could become something great.

Yes java main was a sugestion before.. but it wasn't that popular..

Well anyway i might whip up some javascript tutorial :) This is a god idea and its strange it wasn't done earlier..

Good that you made one momo :)

I think what we should do, to keep from overwhelming the forum with Java topics, is come up with a list of proposed tutorials. Then, one by one, an author can assign him/herself to each tutorial, and write it. Once the tutorial is finished, it's checked for correctness by another author. After that, the author can move on to another tutorial. That way, theres less of a chance to make mistakes. This is just a rough idea, and a thought. If you guys don't like that, it's fine.

And yes, having a program as a tutorial is good, but it must demonstrate a concept and be well documented to be effective. Like the paint program one is okay, because users can take that and add things to it themselves.

that is in fact a good idea. Also, we should make the tutorials on a txt document or something so we can edit it (unlike the bbs) and then when it's fixed, the original author post it.

Ok, let's start making a list of tutorials that we need. But becareful about how much you post because i will have to post the updated list at the top of the next page. So post wisely.

Java tutorials...any suggestions?

i don't have any right off the back of my hand but i guess i could come up with some. just hang on a couple of posts or somehting

good idea! I have already started on a "Java: arrays" tutorial, you might add me to MSN and you can have a look at it when its done.

lol i have only been using java for a few weeks but im pretty good at it anyway ^^

Okay, first off, who will maintain the txt file? How will the authors access it?
How will in progress tutorials be distributed? Email? Probably.
We can flex ng's new pm system to send review requests and approvals, and just send the text files via email.

K, so far we have doodle, momo, myself, and seel as authors. We basically need a list to establish the reviewers, so that way anybody can write a tutorial from a public list of proposed topics; they just need to know who to submit it to to be reviewed.

Okay added you momo..

Well email/MSN would be best. But the PM system would work to. Well we could just send the files to one other person and let that one look at it, like with the one im makeing now, i might send it to momo and let him look at it and then he might fix it a litle and send it back and then like make the thread.. Sounds like a good system to me.

Sounds good. I will post all of the compiled tutorials in a list at the beginning of each page so everyone knows what's the what. please don't try to do this part for me. I have a txt file saved (which no one can access) that has all the links ready for me to post. Please don't do it because you will miss the top of the page and then we will have 2 lists of tutorials

I can maintain the txt files but we only need them until you post it on the bbs.

Email and MSN

yup that or MSN

We can flex ng's new pm system to send review requests and approvals, and just send the text files via email.

That sounds like a good idea.

ALSO i need every1's msn's's so i know who you are if you go about messaging my "HEY d00d"

i might end up blocking you if you do that. so give me your screenname and MSN account

My msn: terrible_1_91@hotmail.com
erm screen name?? (im from sweden doh!)
well its either seel (My alias) or Daniel (My IRL name..) probably..

So whay exactly did you mean with that momo that you post all the compiled tutorials? Are you going to post the ones that we make? We should probably talk about this kinda stuff on MSN instead of filling this thread..

Response to Java: Main 2006-06-08 12:22:05


I don't use any instant messengers, so you would have to get me through email.

Yeah, sorry, but I don't know Java. So I am out of the running for writing them.

Response to Java: Main 2006-06-09 00:16:21


well...here's some ideas. some are from my post before.

Java: Data Types, Wrapper classes, and the Math class.
Java: String Basics
Java: Object-Oriented design.
Java: The Enhanced for Loop
Java: Applets (big one)
Java: .jar Archives
Java: Event Handling
Java: GUI Basics
Java: Basic Graphics Classes
Java: JPanel & Animation Updating
Java: Threads
Java: Text File I/O
Java: Data File I/O
Java: Exception Handling with try-catch Blocks
Java: Javadoc and Standard Syle Conventions

just to name a few...yeah...most are pretty useful.

make sure they are approved before posting them though. they should look professional, and contain absolutely NO errors. also, make sure the tutorial flows with a logical structure, as opposed to just spewing out everything you know.

actually, if it sucks i won't add it to the thing is all. It' no problem, and if it does have errors we can always point them out and fix them in later posts. It's not the end of the world if we have posted errors. We're human. nobody's (but God) perfect.

i made a paint program because people that are new to java dont want to read arrays tutorials and variables tutorials blah blah and try and make something of there own.
they need to get a program, use tutorials like arrays and variables to work out what each bit of the code does and edit it according to what they want the function to be.
i'm not saying that arrays and variables tutorials are bad, infact they are VERY usefull for more intermediate programmers.

Intermediate programmers. not the n00bies though. But yea he's right. People that are new to java don't want to learn about arrays for variables and crap. They have no use for that stuff. They want to learn the stuff that's big that they'll use.

Ok, If you are going to make a tutorial, make sure you have it right before you post it to the bbs. If it isn't completely right and you just noticed right after you have posted, reply to the message with the right thing.

comon, someone post something, i have to leave like in 2 mins and i need to post at the top of the next page which is 2 posts away, so someone post something!!!
