C++ and Java

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Firstly I am sorry guys, I have been posting a lot of questions and been asking for help neally once a week but I am a NOOB tongue.gif

So recently I have been playing around with C++ and making a calc for fun but now I also want to learn about android SDK at the same time and make some apps, do you guys think that would be a stupid move as I should learn a language at a time or would it be a good idea? Honestly I always wanted to make a android app but I need some advice? Learn C++ like a boss then learn SDK?

If you understand object oriented language and want to write apps, then you shouldn't limit yourself to a specific language.

Decide what you want to do and then learn how to do it while actually doing it.

If your overall aim is building Android applications, then you should pick the right tool for it, which is Java.

Java is somewhat easier to learn than C++, as you don't have to deal with many low-level details like memory management. On the other hand if you learn C++ well enough, switching to Java should be relatively easy. However learning C++ like a boss may take months, if not years. For the beginning it doesn't really matter which programming language you chose, as they all share similar fundamental concepts, which you'll only learn through experience.

Btw, you can create Android applications with C++ as well, using Qt: https://qt-project.org/doc/qtcreator-2.8/creator-android-app-tutorial.html
