Troy Dimes Create software that delivers more value.
Ideas are cheap. A lot of people seem to think that majority of the software development process is just creating a vague concept of an application that people might want. You’ve probably heard a lot of people say things like, “I have this idea for an app that’ll surely reach a million downloads!” only to find their apps lost in an ocean of similar apps.
Creating great software and delivering them on time requires a rather systematic but not overly rigid implementation scheme. Quality and time must go together. If you deliver software that’s full of bugs or poor in user experience, you really can’t expect another transaction with your client. A lot of programmers fear this outcome and instead take too long to create programs.
You have a limited amount of time to create software, especially when you’re given a deadline, self-imposed or not. You’ll want to make sure that the software you build is at least decent but more importantly, on time. How do you balance quality with time?

Troy Dimes Learn one of the most widely used computer programming languages in existence today: Java. Once you learn how to program in Java you can create software applications that run on servers, desktop computers, tablets, phones, blu-ray players, and more. If you want to ensure your software behaves the same regardless of which operation system it runs on, then Java's "write once, run anywhere" philosophy is for you. Java was designed to be platform independent, allowing you to create applications that run on a variety of operating systems including Windows, Mac, Solaris, and Linux.
Here's what you'll learn:
How to prepare your computer for programming in Java.
Java file-naming conventions.
How to work with various data types including integers, floating point numbers, characters, and booleans.
What variables are and when to use them.
How to perform mathematical operations in Java.
Making decisions in your programs based on comparisons.
Other ways to control the flow of your programs.
How to manipulate textual data.
All about arrays - how to create them, when to use them, and more.
Various ways to perform the same actions in your programs without repeating yourself.
Three types of loops
Object-oriented programming concepts and techniques including classes, modifiers, methods, inheritance, and polymorphism.
Ways to gracefully handle errors that might occur when someone uses your programs.
Great for beginning programmers or those that are new to the Java language.
Troy Dimes C# is simple but powerful. C# is a simple and general-purpose object-oriented programming language. Combine this with its versatility and huge standard library, and it's easy to see why it's such a popular and well-respected programming language. Create graphical applications, Web-based apps, and more. When you learn how to program in C#, you will be able to develop Web-based applications or graphical desktop applications. One of the best things about C# is that it's easy to learn...especially with this book. Here's just some of what you'll learn:
What an IDE is and which one you should use when developing C# applications
How to create your first program
The various data types used in C#
Operators - arithmetic, relational, and logical
