That is an interesting idea. I know I will get stuck again. I’m not sure how it would work since many times I need to ask some questions that are probably basic to people in the profession.
I am on Chapter 16 now and I plan to go back through the book after I finish it and tackle the rest of the challenges since I could not get them all. I am working on an app idea so I will be trying to draw up that project plan concurrently.
I am not a programmer by profession. I have had courses in Java, C++, PHP, MySql, and I taught myself a lot about HTML and website design (through another book). But the Java and C++ were a long time ago so one mistake I made was not to go ahead and buy a quick reference book in Java. Instead I bought a reference book which is a little hard to use. I just bought another one with workshop exercises and I am going to go through those. But I don’t know how much it will help.
This book is very good in most situations. The Chapter 9 problem was the only thing that really had me confused so clearly I am missing some fundamentals. I am having a great time with it and find the whole experience addictive.
