New Java developer looking for a project.

Hi everyone,

I am not sure if this is the right place for a post like this. If not, please forgive me in advance.

I am new to the Java programming language and really excited about what I have learned so far (which is the core Java language). I would really like to get some hands on experience with Java and the best place for that is in my opinion a open-source Java project.

What I am looking for is someone that can use me on his/her project and/or can point me into the right direction of finding a project that is friendly to new people, would be able to use a new and motivated developer and would not mind offering some guidance if I make a mistake.

P.s. I have a decent amount of experience in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, JQuery and Python.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Excuses me for any typo's English is not my primary language.

Welcome to the Ranch

It seems surprisingly difficult to search, since lots of people ask that sort of question, but I have found a few old threads which might help: 1 2. Have a quick look at those threads and see whether they give you any ideas.
I agree. Here's the link:
