I have recently passed my SCWCD exam and I want to re-enforce what I have learned, by writing some code. In preparation for my first job (whenever I get one), should I be spending my time, one: installing Tomcat and writing code at the command line the way Sierra and Bates do in "Head First Servlets and JSPs", or two: learn the web-app features of NetBeans 6.1, or three: something else. All opinions are welcome.
Try to contribute to an open-source project where you can apply what you learnt. This will look good on your resume as well.
-- You can learn from and enhance your coding skills by looking at others� code. -- You can get feedback from others on your code. -- You can enhance your ability to understand problems and develop effective solutions for it. -- You can proudly mention your contribution on your resume.
