Hi
 I need to go for interview where they want I to showcase my programming skills  by bringing my own project and show the code.
I can't take my company code so what mini project you will suggest for that,  even thought i have 10 years of java, kindly suggest the small application with its functionality.

I am thinking make a program on "parking lot reservation"

Kindly suggest or and where I can get code which I can further customize.


Thanks

Surely after ten years you can write the code from the bottom up?

It didn't sound sarcastic to me. You started off by saying "bringing my own project", which sounds like a good idea. But then you went on to ask how to get code, which presumably would have been written by somebody else; that doesn't really sound like "my own project" any more. But you've been programming Java for 10 years, you say, so one would expect you could write such a project all by yourself. Fortunately I'm not involved in hiring decisions but if I were then that would be my belief.

Well you have taken assumption that I am asking for code but I also wrote the line "I am thinking make a program on "parking lot reservation""  it means I am planning to do coding..
yes its been 10 years in over all java including leading few projects but I have interview on monday and having short time so was simply looking for IDEA on different project I can think to code  OR if I can get some code then will do some reference but still code myself..

:)
Cheers

Ah... you have a short time frame. So perhaps contributing to some open source project would be better? I don't think there are many unfinished simple projects lying around the Internet, but there's certainly no shortage of open source projects with backlogs of fixes and new features to be implemented. I think that for your purposes you'd be looking for new features to implement.
