Nefyoni is also taking Java classes, last I heard. We have a bunch of coders here, though not all of them are familiar with Java.
It’s interesting to see interest in Java get renewed with Android and Minecraft. I sort of wish MC was C++ based with a scripting layer for API/modding.
Personally, I can mostly read it and fix some bugs, but I don’t dare write in it. I understand the appeal of a cross-platform language, but I really hate Java as an end-user and the language (despite a couple nice features) seems a little annoying. Maybe if I was an OO programmer it’d be cake, but I’m more of a function-focused PHP programmer.
