I'm new to Java. I have no background about how programming in Java is but I'm planning to learn how things are done.
I just have one question before I start. I've got an idea about a mobile application that I've been thinking to work on for a regional programming competition in Kuwait, my hometown. It's basically a program that allows people in a LAN to communicate through their mobiles without the need of using their emails. I'm thinking of a shout box or something similar. Something quick for a professor and a student to communicate for short messages without the need to exchange emails or phone numbers.
I've got 8 months to work on learning Java and creating my first "draft" of code.
Do you think it can be done?
