hello, i guess coding is the next step and learning by doing. try to get a students job or something. this will help a lot. i got 2 in the last months and this really helps, because you are forced to do something.
yes, thats it in my opinion.

bye

shine_fl,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We ain't got many rules 'round these parts, but we do got one. Please change your display name to comply with The JavaRanch Naming Policy.

A space instead of an underscore would be a step in the right direction. Also, a vowel in your displayed last name would be nice.

Thanks Pardner! Hope to see you 'round the Ranch!

If you're looking to get better and Java programming, I'd recommend writing lots of programs, studying more Java programming topics that interest you, and hang out around here, reading questions and answers, and answering questions. You can learn a lot when helping someone to figure out the solution to a problem.

Here is a list of free on-line Java tutorials and books that I have found useful:
  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
  • JavaRanch's own Campfire Stories
  • Allen B. Downey's How To Think Like A Computer Scientist

  • Places to find Java Projects for improving your programming skills:
  • The JavaRanch Cattle Drive
  • Roedy Green's List of Student Java Projects
  • Projects associated with various chapters of Bradley Kjell's Introduction to Computer Science using Java - the project links are on the right side of the page
  • Projects associated with various chapters of David J. Eck's Introduction to Programming Using Java
  • The SCJD Development Team
  • SourceForge.net's Java Foundries
  • The Jakarta Project
