I just finished my second Java workshop. Today, I learned how to do loops and also, how to set variables. For practice, we were asked to create a program which generates 10 random circles in random different colours. It was more difficult then what we did before. This time we had to think of different steps and plan ahead but after a while, I was able to write the right code.
Today, we had our second workshop. After we used Photoshop the last time, we went on and learned something about programming. We started at the very beginning and after we talked about common programming misconceptions, we went over some general vocabulary like IDE or variable.
Then we did our first own little programming using Java and a program called Processing. It was interesting to get to know some basics even though it is probably going to get a lot more difficult.
For now, I will download Processing (http://www.processing.org/) and take a look at the different tutorials the page offers. Also I am going to try to recreate what we did at the workshop.
