    Million £ Question

    The million £ question i have is:

    How do you all "Professional Programmers" remember the codes?
    Do you all get them from the net?
    Where can i get from for VB and Java?
    Or what do you type in google?


    As a test i made a windows media player (very easy by VB) now how do tell it to play a song from a CD?

    Please do take some time and explain as i am starter only

    Thank you for your time and help

    Have a good day

    resources, resources, resources...

    Anything that we have written will usually be reused at some point later on down the road. I have books, class notes, old class programs, source code from many different resources as well as a group of websites (like this one) that I routinely check in order to gain more insight and gather ideas on ways to stream line things I have already written or will write as well as staying up on the latest modifications to program command sets.

    But most importantly, never be afraid to ask a question.

    Yea its pretty much just practise. Programming is all about common code patterns and the more you practise the more you use these patterns without even thinking about it.

    The nice thing about object orientation is that if you know the syntax of the language you are using you can pretty much just go and write objects to represent things without actually thinking about the program you are writing (other than only writing objects that are relevant to your program of course) then later just use those objects in the program and maybe even other programs without having to rewrite them at all.

    As for where to get info, you can make do with websites and asking questions. Books also help later on and taking a course (for example Computer Science degree) is a major way of learning.
