Default Should I learn C before Java ?

Why not both at the same time?

Hi. Should I jump right into Java, or is it better to learn C first?
I'm not a total beginner; I know Javascript, but I obviously would like
to learn a more powerful language.

Thanks,

TP

it depends with what you want to do with it.

Yes,

I agree too that you should go straight to Java as although the syntax is
essentially the same C is a bit of a pain and I noticed that from just
scrathing the surface of it

C will only slow down your learning curve of OOP because it's quite
procedural language. Java has the C-like syntax, but the syntax is the least
problem. Believe me, I hardly got used on OOP after few years in Visual
Basic programming.

Start Java with "Beginning Java 2" (Horton), "Thinking in Java" (Eckel) and
"The Java Tutorial" (Sun's website).

I'd go with Java first. Java was not out when I got into this business,
so I did C, C++, Smalltalk, REXX and the like. C++ and Smalltalk helped
me understand Objects. If you begin with C you are going to get a wakeup
call once you start with Java, because you would be unfamiliar with
object technology. OO is about half of mastering Java, IMHO.
