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

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.
