When learning a second or third programming language, how do you survive re-learning the introductory concepts that you already know (variables, operators, conditionals, etc…), without getting bored?
I’m currently doing an Android game development course on FutureLearn, and we’re just covering the basics of all the above thing - and it’s boring me to tears.
I get that many (if not most) of the people doing this course will be total beginners, and need to understand this stuff - but there has to be a better way than spending half an hour talking theory about them? For me it’s boring, but for everyone else, I’d imagine it’s possibly overwhelming?
Maybe the course I’m doing isn’t best suited to me for this reason, and that I might be better off jumping in the deep end - I don’t know.
What do you think?
