Sage Clark wrote:So here is where I'm stuck. I've finished a java class and finished the book. I said to myself, "That was a fun class, let's try to keep going." I then go on github and start looking at java projects, and it seemed to me that they must all have learned some completely different java than me. All the programs I write have a .class file and a .java file. Can some one please explain to me how these project files are all comprised of files I've never seen, and why when I look at "beginner forums" I don't understand any of the questions being asked by my fellow "begginers"? What are you guys doing to learn how to create java projects on github and learning how to actually use java to help with projects others are doing online? In other words what do I do after having read this beginner book ? Thank you for reading.
Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were saying that other projects are made up of .java and .class files. As S Fox pointed out, projects online could have a lot more to them than vanilla Java.

Not MS NotePad please. It has some bad habits which make programming more difficult. Use something like NotePad++, which has options like automatic indentation to make programming easier. The text editors built in to Linux/Unix/Mac boxes are good, however.much better
