I've opened this thread following rotten69's suggestion for "Java projects for beginners".
To get things started I've posted a project in a format that makes sense to me; please feel free to follow that format, or to do it in some completely different style if that seems better.
Let's see how that goes, and when things settle down I'll tidy it up and make it a sticky.
This thread is for Java project suggestions.
You have attended the lectures, read the books. watched the videos, but the only way to get good at Java is to write some real programs. These suggestions are for learners at every stage and each one will help develop your skills in one or more aspects of Java. Please feel free to add new project suggestions of your own.
This is NOT the place to discuss detailed solutions, nor to ask for help when you attempt one of these projects. If we allow that in this thread it will rapidly become too large and tangled to be useful. For any kind of discussion about problems or solutions start your own new thread. You can always PM me or another mod to get your thread cross-linked from the corresponding item in this thread.
Special thanks and appreciation are due to rotten69, who suggested this in the first place, and kept pushing until it happened.
