Projects to Learn Java
As a programmer it is important to keep adding skill sets. An easy way to do that is to pick up a new language. Of course reading text books or manuals is a great place to start however the best way to learn is to just jump into a project with the new language. The project gives you a goal to work towards while teaching you the idiosyncrasies of that language. You never truly know a language until you have fought with it and won a few battles.
So I’m interested in Java.
Here are some places to get some projects
- Stack Overflow on the subject
- CodeKata – Programming problems – guess it works for Java too
- Java Projects for Students
- Udemy Java project suggestions
A few of the suggestions that I thought were interesting:
- Text encryption and decryption
- internet chatting
- A hotel / Car reservation system
- product inventory system
Of course I should be utilizing my Lynda Subscription.
