LibGDX can export to HTML5, Android, Desktop, iPhone, applets. Tongue Gogo Java Cheesy
Our computer lectures are in computer labs so we usually get to do our notes on the computer / follow along the lecturer. Even IT in school was similar, as our computer lessons were in front of the computers.

My school is teaching JavaScript, which makes sense seeing as HTML5 is getting big. However, I feel like we could do a lot more with a desktop language, Java or Python both seem like more logical choices.
I never got taught programming in school until I went to college to do an IT course. All we did in school was learn how to use... Word? I don't know, it was so daunting and I was in the bottom set Tongue I'm actually pretty jealous that you're learning programming in school Sad

the programming in my school teaches visual basic.

Also I knew it was a stupid line, creating a Graphics interface on visual basic has nothing to do with tracking an IP address.
its like

"ill go draw on ms paint, see if I can track the killer's IP address."

Schools usually start people out with VB, they did to us too. I enjoy programming, but VB seems to take that fun away. You should see if your school is running Visual Studio and rebel with C++/C# instead, muuuch more enjoyable Tongue

will you teach me to make a gui interface with visual basic so I can track the killer's IP address?

also I plan to do this when school starts. When I gots the time.
Probably got paid by MS to say it. No one would ever want to program in VB. The thing's a nightmare, and as Rosim has said, 'sounds like my parents when they try to be cool in front of my friends' Tongue

Motivated is the key term here.
Even my brother and best friend are not reading the lessons lol. But I like writing these. I don't feel bad for writing a lot, for once Tongue
We programmers are lonely creatures. We need to satisfy our social needs somehow, eh? Tongue

doesnt the raspberry pi have all sorts of documentation and API stuff on their site so you can do all the codery hackery stuff all you want?
Knowledge is easy to come by; it's harder trying to decide what to do xD

Damn right I'm British.

I need some things to do on the Pi, but I don't really know what. I want to do some cool codery hackery things but I don't have the knowledge...

I'd recommend learning electronics as you go along. I'm currently messing around with photovoltaics. Tongue I think next I'll try developing my own OS with the Raspberry Pi.

Eh, kind of. A lot of the cooler things require a knowledge on a lot of hardware, most of which I know nothing about.
Find something you want to do and learn as you go. Tongue

Some useful websites for parts/bits&bobs

I think the problem stems from the power supply I'm using. It's an HTC charger that supposedly works, but I think it's what's been giving me issues. I might try my Apple charger instead.

Another thing might be that most raspberry pi apps seem to be supporting the newer model which has double the amount of RAM.
Just make sure it's powering at about 4.5-5V±, no higher, and you certainly don't want to go lower.
I use my pi for a media centre too, not really much I can think of doing with mine as I also have an Arduino. I prefer using Arduino boards for electrical stuff as if you blow the chip, it's cheaper to replace as you can just take it out and buy a new one. Unfortunately if you blow the Pi, you have to buy the whole thing again.
Although I wouldn't mind having another pi (even though our university is giving out free ones, it's only started this year to the freshers) to do some crazy networking stuff.

Ł30 cheaper!? I personally would have just bought a fresh new one for the 30gbp difference. (Also didn't know that you were British? Tongue)

It's also complete crap. It's supposed to be for "education", but I managed to find a way to get a gameboy emulator without having to jailbreak, and managed to get everyone in the school back into pokemon :p
At least you got a free iPad! All we get is a free raspberry pi...

If you have a reddit account, /r/LearnJapanese really like their apps, maybe post it thwere for a little publicity Tongue

I tend to stay away from it for addictive reasons. Tongue Will be sure to get the name around once it's complete heh.

I've announced my new app and revealed some screenshots about on it my website: http://www.harrk.com/blog/post/friday-update-new-project-japanese-revision-app
It's only been one week roughly since I started work on it though Tongue

It's a Japanese revision app that I hope to get released before Summer's end, but judging from how I want to add mini-games to the app then it could get delayed. Usually I work with LibGDX to build games with and just skip the boring Android XML jibba-jabba, so this is a new turn for me and hopefully I can get LibGDX merged in later for the mini-games. Smiley

Really need to work on my website further at some point. It's built on Drupal 6 as I started building my website before we moved over to developing with Drupal 7 - which is faaaaar better and module developers are no longer developing for 6. Sad

Lesson 2 is up!

By the way, I really suggest that you read everything in the Director's Office section, and then read the lessons in order.
And people have the right to post in most threads, including lessons. As long as the lesson and exercises have been posted. The first two posts are reserved. Questions and comments are more than welcome!

It's all good but I really hope you can get some people to take up the offer. You're putting a lot of work in and I'm checking things out every now and then. Sadly I don't have a lot of followers on Twitter or anything to direct them all to you xD (I should really start using Twitter more...) I enjoyed doing your exercises in my head, even if I had to pretend to not know the answers Tongue I'm looking forward to doing a few exercises/challenges once the bar rises.

Keep it up, Rosim! Cheesy

I wish I had a Nexus 7, but I'm stuck with this school-monitored iPad mini...

Same. Not sure if I should get the new Nexus 7 - would definitely be awesome! At the very least I'm going to wait to see if they discount the 2012 model. Otherwise I'm going getting it when I hit my targets on Google Play Tongue

And you seriously have a school-monitored iPad? o.o Root that thing xD (or whatever it is you do on iPads - Jailbreak?)

You have a point. Now, get back to your seat. ^^
Welcome among us!
Oh no, the secret has been revealed o.O!
What if she empties it before? Free lessons!
Defrauding the fraudster. D:

Jellybean 4.3 is launching out now on Nexus devices, with it comes multiple user support and Open GL ES 3.0.

And something Google didn't show off on their live stream yesterday: New Emojis!
