    Default Re: Beginning Java

    There are various online tutorials for learning Java.

    The one I usually refer people to is provided by Oracle, the maintainers of the Java language: The Java Tutorials.

    It took me a few years to "master" Java, though I'm still learning more about Java even to this day. This is highly dependent on how dedicated you are and how well you can comprehend the material. Some take longer, some shorter. The beginning is definitely the hardest.

    What kind of projects do you want to do? This is really up to you. Find something that interests you, whether it be games development, web development, desktop apps, etc. I use Java mainly for scientific and mathematical computing.
