Hi, so where can I find examples of peoples work and games. I just want to see what the potential of Java programming can do and what it is capable of. So any big time game or app or programme that I may know off that are built with Java, because I did a quick Google search and it came up with all these scientific programmes made with Java and I'm all for that but I'm not going to spend ages learning the language if that's all its capable of.
Im really struggling between what language I want to learn, because I have done html,css and php before and it is quite clear what thoose languages are capable of but I dont know what java is capable of. What can I do with it because all I know so far with java is to store variables in strings and print lines. And I know I can complete this in a much shorter time with standard html but everyone bigs up Java and im not sure why the reason is. So what I want to know:
What can Java allow me to do (not job wise eg get a good job , but what can I do that other languages cant)
Any products (games,apps) that I may know off that are made with Java.
How long will it take me to get to that level of building professional apps/games etc if it is possible(I am 15 almost 16 years old and I am the best programmer in my high school, beating the teachers (the it teachers anyway)
