If at first you don't succeed, try power tools.

Don't you mean

No no, you're thinking of HTML, whereas I meant something completely different and incredibly complicated.

I've been a professional software engineer for 60 years.

Code:
if (you.getDoubt()) {
  println 'FUCK YOU';
} else {
  println 'FUCK YOU';
}

log.err('none of this matters');
exit(1);

I program web-apps and REST web services based in Java and Grails/Groovy. For money.

Groovy is actually pretty kickass. It adds a few nice little features on top of Java, like dynamic typing, closures and stuff. So yeah, kickass....if you have never known a woman's touch.

That's awesome I imagine you know a hell of a lot more than me, then. I've been doing this less than a year, after spending an awfully long time stagnating in a php dev job. I think Groovy's a pretty cool way to get back into proper OO dev, though.

I totally agree that Groovy fucking rocks. I hope it eventually replaces a large amount of Java out there. It is so much more fun to program Groovy than Java.

You might not know me from the other forum, but I am a programmer too. Mostly I use old school C.

Sorry for the double post, but if anybody can direct me to a tutorial to Mobile Programming, I would appreciate it. I'm kinda interested in that.

I have actually been a freelance video game programmer for several smaller companies and a lab instructor at Full Sail University. I am a C++, .NET, and SQL programmer.

direct me to a tutorial to Mobile Programming

The two biggest API's out right now are the iPhone's API and Google's Android. The iPhone API is in Objective-C and compiles with the XCode IDE (comes with the SDK) and Android is in Java and works best with the Eclipse IDE.

Even if you never worked with SDKs before, both sites have very well detailed guides and there are dozens of manuals to get you started.

EPD, as an owner of an Android device, I would be very interested to know what your company is called and to see if I can download or purchase any of your apps.

I am still dumb and in school, but I am majoring in web development/database programming and learning all of the languages that entails.  I want to take it a lot further though, so I will use the advice in this thread.  I want to pile on the marketable skills.

What programming languages and databases are they teaching you in school?

If they aren't teaching you Smalltalk, then they aren't doing their jobs properly and you should tell them so.

That depends on what you want to get out of your education. There are not many jobs that require Smalltalk experience. It is a great academic language, and it was the beginning of object-oriented programming. But as far as practicality goes, you'd be better off learning C++ or Java or Python.

You don't have to have a CS degree to be a programmer, or even to call yourself a software engineer.

I was actually joking. Smalltalk is the most baffling language i've ever come across in my life.

Yo, in response to a possible job opportunity that may be opening up in the next few months, I'm going to be learning how to program for Valve's Source Engine.  Have any of you guys played around with it at all, and if so, d'you have any tips or links to helpful resources?
