Game code is no different from other code.

I recommend you start out with simple projects, like a game of checkers, and then you can try adding a graphical user interface and network capabilities to it later.

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

This tutorial was recommended by someone I trust on another site. I haven't worked through it myself but read the intro, and I think it looks promising. If it appeals to you and is appropriate for your current programming skill level, please try it out, and let us know what you think.

Always learning Java, currently using Eclipse on Fedora.
