A good way to learn is to pick a project, figure out something you would like to make and then go off and try and do it.
What have you done thus far?
thanks for the advice. In my free time, I've used java to make video games, with lwjgl and another library. I've learned this from thenewboston on youtube if you've ever heard of it. In my class at school, we have made a few bigger projects for college in high school, like craps (the betting game), higher or lower (using a random number and you guess..similar to "hot or cold"), and now blackjack (i'm working ahead on it and its starting to confuse me because the computer has to decide whether to use an ace as a 1 or 11 and there's two programs similar to each other running at the same time, dealer and user). We've done dozens more projects, but they are mostly beginner stuff that we're doing to get a grasp of it. the most advanced thing i'm learning of right now is two dimensional arrays, and they seem interesting.
