Reflections on Porting SimUDuck

I feel that I have a better grasp on basic Java programming having gone through the process of porting SimUDuck to Python. Java seems a lot “wordier” to me in it’s use of syntax. Having such a limited background in programming – my only real exposure being three months of Python in CIS 210 – I feel that Java is a bit more confusing due to the wordier and more restrictive syntax but overall it’s not terribly different than Python. My brain certainly got twisted around numerous times jumping back and forth between the two languages but I’m confident that over time each of them will become more ingrained through the conversion process.
