Be Good at Java

Hello Java Ranch Family,

I have an offer for all of you. Let's make a real Java project. Let's make a real basic program.

I know, you beginners have questions like me.*

* "I am learning Java, but how can I enter inside of Java?"

* "I am reading a lot. How can I use my knowledge that I gained on Java?"

* "Java is an ocean yes, but how can I swim without fear?" = "How can I make Java Programing practices?"

Let's take a further step. I will wait your comments...

No offense, but this seems to come up often on the ranch. Attempts at starting a study group. Attempts at group projects. Attempts at starting a separate forum (via google groups). etc. And pretty much, many are doom to fail, while the rest, fizzle to a lukewarm state.

Not exactly sure why, but my thinking is.... Study groups work better when you know everyone, at pretty much the same level, and can physically meet. This doesn't work very well with stangers, in different timezones, all over the world. On top of that, the ranch is a pretty helpful place to be in -- spinning off means that you will lose access to some expertise.

Henry, maybe your are right. Perhaps, you had attempted earlier. Try again. We will not lose anything. We will just try. At this point, I am very excited to try to do something about Java.

I hope, you will take a place our new group. If we share our thoughts, we will clarify our questions. And I believe that many of us can take a step. I feel, most of beginners want this. It is not about money. It will give us experience. And this platform is great place to try out.

Hi Abhishek, I am happy to hear your interest.

First of all, let's share our thoughts: What can we do? Java is a programing language. Do you have any suggestion for a simple program?
