The following is a self-introduction; it was rewritten in June 2021.
A brief profile
- Handle name (in Japanese)
- Brief History
- I have been working in the field of business system development in Java for about 4 or 5 years. Currently, I am working on software development, but I don’t use programming languages directly.
About this blog
In this blog, I mainly write articles about things I have reviewed and new things I have learned in programming. Recently, I have written a few articles about my experiences and memories of past jobs, but this is an exception.
Basically, the articles contain sample programs that I have actually made and their execution results. I hope this will be helpful to people who are learning or using programming languages, and I am posting my memorandum in the form of a blog.
Encounters with Programming
When I went to college, I took an elementary information processing class in my first year. I learned the rudiments of the following topics.
- Basic Windows operations
- Basic use of Word and Excel
- How to create a web page with HTML
At that time, I think HTML was in transition between versions 3.2 and 4.01. I remember there were CSS books in the bookstore and I studied them myself.
In my second year of college, I took a class on the C programming language. This is where I learned about programming languages.
At first, I didn’t want to do any programming myself, but I found a web page where a simple game was implemented using Java applet, and I wanted to try making something myself. I was a member of the mathematics department, and at the time, fractal figures were popular, and I wanted to make such figure drawing with a Java applet.
It was around the year 2000, and Windows 98 was in vogue. The Internet was connected to my home via a telephone line, and I bought several Java reference books and installed the Java compiler that came on the accompanying CD on my computer. I wrote Java code in a text editor, compiled it at the MS-DOS prompt, and executed it.
I was self-taught, but I was able to create a working Java applet. This experience has been useful in my later work related to programming.
