Just like to echo Angela's comments. I've been visiting this site for a couple of weeks since starting to learn Java and have found it fun and informative. I haven't found anything like it.
I've completed the assignments (but have been too shy to post! ), and I'm still trying to earn my "Silver Spurs" on the Rules Roundup...

Oh, go ahead and post.

Seriously, feedback is essential to developing good programming techniques. It's no fun having your code, you slaved over, ripped apart. But it's an invaluable part of the learning process.

I'm down to only one student to abuse now. Usually there are three or more.
Lots of people do the assignments and never send them to me. There is certainly value in that. You will make a program that works! My role is to help you understand what makes a program readable. I also throw in tips about optimization and style.
