LiveJournal Client Discussions
Hey! My name is Adam (I just joined this community). I'd like to create a LiveJournal client, but my knowledge & understanding of programming languages is rather limited.
So, as I was saying... although I kind-of have a semi-basic (no pun intended) framework of understand for programming languages, my official/not self taught training is lacking. Can anyone recommend a good starting point for me? I've read bits & pieces of the database schema, the LiveJournal server code, and the section on writing your own client...but, again, I know I'm not understanding things as in depth as I can be (that's kinda awkwardly put, but whatever).
So my questions are: Where should I start? Is it possible to start & finish the entire program by the end of the summer? If so, how labor/time intensive is it going to be (still gotta earn some cash for school)? And anything else you can think of that would help is most appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
