It all started with "Hello World!"

Source
For those of you who don't know what "Hello World!" is, it is the most basic and simplest program that outputs "Hello World!" on the screen. It is the typical first program that everybody execute in their beginning days be it for C, Java, Python or any other programming language and so did I almost 4 years ago when I started learning the C language. Getting your message printed on a black screen was not that amazing though.

Next step was performing the basic operations like addition, multiplication, etc followed by largest no. out of three, conditional outputs, factorial etc. That was the time when I started feeling like a true programmer. Although, even this was not a big deal for everyone else but for me this was huge. I had already started imagining myself in Google or MNCs in coming 6-7 years.

But, after few months I realized that it's not a doddle and requires profuse knowledge, hard-work and proficiency to reach there. Outputting mere calculations on a black screen stands no where in front of it. Thereafter, during the summer vacations, after my sophomore, I undertook the 6 week training programme in Java language about which I mentioned in my earlier post, Time reveals all the secrets. And FYI this was mandatory for all of us, it was not something that I did for the sake of widening my knowledge.

Now the black screen was replaced by a colorful one, I learned about User Interface that is much more user friendly than the Command prompt (Black screen). I learned about making Desktop Applications. I learned the fact that C language is the parent of every other programming language. Also it was customary to submit a project based on the training programme. The entire class of students was divided into groups of two or three and different projects were given and suggested to them by Mr. Rajesh, who was the CEO of the Institute. However, till the time me and my partner were able to approach him, every project was already taken by some or the other group.

We had no idea on the topic of our project. Rajesh Sir somehow suggested us to make an application for his personal use that would help him to maintain the records of the students and manage the fee deposits. It was an interesting idea but didn't stand anywhere in front of other projects since it sounded very simple as compared to messaging application or lottery. We turned low since the project points had much credits in our evaluation for the semester. Yet we contributed every skill and knowledge that we had on that project and made it look attractive, that was a tedious task since Java has many constraints.

We invested all of our time into the project. Also, we managed to embed a separate messaging form into it which could help him to send any important message to all the students or the selected ones in just one click of send. He was quite impressed from the presentation and working and surprisingly it turned out to be one of the best projects of Java. He provided us with an extra certificate acknowledging the live project that is till date used by him. Also, I got an A+ on my project submission.
Presently, it feels great when your junior calls or messages to tell you that your project is amazing and Sir always flaunts it to all of us. I never thought it could turn out to be what it is now.

Anyway, it was the only remarkable thing happened in my programming journey. After knowing and realizing about the lives of  famous figures like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates who were the college dropouts,  I always thought of dropping the college since it is apparently customary act in order to achieve recognition. But years passed and only few months are left for my graduation. I hope, something incredible happens in coming months that create the circumstances for me to drop college and I turn out to be one of them. :D
I know that's next to impossible, but there is no harm in being optimistic.
Cheers!

  1. Hahaha, wishful thinking :)

    You reminded of my days when i wrote 'Hello World' in C lang though i never worked as a Developer in life. I went onto do my B.Tech in IT and then MBA in Finance and working as a Functional Consultant now :)

    Congratulations on your A+. I know it is a thing of the past, but still...

  3. I am someone who uses java for testing.you are saying you guys developed a desktop application that connects to a database and store student information and can send messages when connected to internet right?How is that process where you will make the application to work from desktop when we double clck on its icon in java?i know java is not like an exe or something,maybe .java?

    1. Hey! First of all it is executable. All you need to do is to convert it into executable jar file and select your first form that must show on the start up. And there are also some setups like launch4j that covert .java file into .exe
      And secondly, yes it is a desktop application, but you must have an internet connection if you want the send message form to work. Otherwise, the messages won't be send and it will show an error prompt.

  10. Reminds me those days, when I studied C and C++. I am a FCS with an MBA and I did it because I opted computer instead of maths in high school. About famous people being drop outs, I seriously believe that is why I am not famous. When my husband says he wants a certification from Harvard, I always say - please leave it midway, may be that is the only way luck will be on our side. Silly, no?
