This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
As I am learning to play the piano and learning the notes I naturally could't help but wonder: "How can I turn this new experience into a java project". Well I decided to translate each note on the 3xA4 sheet music paper of Fable by Robert Miles into midi. It was a new thing for me, i.e java midi so I was actually learning two fields at once. But tonight I finally finished it, a program that, for now, contains the music hardcoded and plays it in midi. In the future I plan to expand the program and have it read music from external source. Anyway I am so pleased with the result I just wanted to share for you amusement I uploaded the jar file, it can be downloaded from here
