This week's book giveaway is in the Java 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of Java 8 in Action and have Raoul-Gabriel Urma, Mario Fusco, and Alan Mycroft on-line! See this thread for details.

I am a beginer learning Java and using "Head First Java". But I find no Programming Exercises to practice the learnt concepts...Where to find such problems to make my learning complete..Please help...

Two of my favorites are Project Euler which contains a lot of math type problems that can be solved in any programming language, and UVa Online Judge which has literally hundreds of programming contest problems. Neither are the same as completing a project, but some of the problems are pretty fun and require a good bit of thinking about the algorithms needed to solve them efficiently. UVa online judge in particular taught me that although micro-optimizations can speed up your code a bit, optimizations to the algorithm, including choosing the correct data structure, are what can give your code a real performance boost.

If you begin to try any of the problems and get stuck, post a question here or in the Programming Diversions forum and we might be able to help out.

Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter
