Question by Miles: I should do fine taking a Java and a Visual Basic class in the same semester. Help.?
I don’t know anything about computer programming. I’m taking an intro programing course which has an intro to programming with a focus on Java. The second class is focused just on Visual Basic. The only “programming” I’ve had is html…may or may not.
Anyway, it shouldn’t be a big deal taking an Intro to prog + Java and a VB class, right? I’ll learn everything.

Luckily, both Java and VB do a good job of garbage collection without much user intervention, so the concepts you will learn (declaring variables, initializing variables, using variables, modularization…) should be similar between the two classes. The main differences you’ll experience are syntax – this will be the toughest thing to keep straight since you’re just starting to learn both. It won’t necessarily be easy, but it can definitely be done.
