good evening /g/entoomen.

I'm rather new to the programming world, having only spent two years learning Java so far. I've learned most of the major concepts of the language, and want to put my skills to the test and try my hand at developing a piece of software, or contributing to an existing open-source project. Before I take that step, I'd like to ask a few questions, and their answers may prove useful to other people in a similar situation to my own.
>Where do I begin with Software development?
>When is too early for a learning programmer to code their first piece of software?
>How do I contribute to existing open-source projects?
>What are mistakes i will make/challenges i will face in making my first functional software

>inb4 Java a shit
>inb4 DESIGNATED
>inb4 the whole 9

pic unrelated, if you couldn't guess.
Thank you in advance for your time.

OOP more like OOPS
OOP more like POO

>>Where do I begin with Software development?
In front of a computer is preferable
>>When is too early for a learning programmer to code their first piece of software?
Before you are born is too early. If you manage to code your first application as a infant, then great.
>>How do I contribute to existing open-source projects?
Learn git and get on github or something. And get irc, ask devs what you can do
>>What are mistakes i will make/challenges i will face in making my first functional software
It might not function at first.

You learn the major concepts of a language in the first 6 weeks. The rest is just a grind to learn and use common libraries.

What is a good book to use to learn java? Currently reading Big Java, but I don't like it.
Any recommendations?
>>
>>52266797
My course used 'An introduction to OOP with Java by C. Thomas Wu (ISBN978-0-07-12868-7) and I also recently acquired @Effective Java 2nd Ed by Joshua Bloch@ but I haven't started reading that one just yet as I also have Code Complete. Both decent books though from what I've heard/experienced.

This is the best advice in the thread desu

To add to it, if you can, go ahead and join your local chapter of code for America or whatever your third world shithole has like it. People there are generally happy to have help, even if you dont have experience.
