I'm trying to teach myself more advanced programming so that I could soon make a game. The things I am trying to learn are:
Drawing Shapes and Putting Images on a Screen
Using Event Listeners
More about Objects
Edit: and Swing!
The reason I'm having trouble learning these things is that i'm used to a teacher teaching me and having "assignments" using the skills we just learned. So what i'm asking for is some assignments that have you make a simple (or complex) program using the skill you just learned. I would give an example if I still had the assignments from my 3 week college but I've lost them. If some one could show me a website with what i'm looking for or possibly give me some assignments that would be nice.
If you have questions, ask and I'll answer!
