    Default Need idea's for my next project

    G'day all,

    I'm an intermediate java programmer. So far I've written a multi fractal generator (5500 LOC), an image processing library (2000 LOC), a graphical address book (800 LOC), a text adventure game and I have completed about 3/4 of the project euler challenges (the one's I understand). So I feel like I am pretty good at 2D graphics, GUI's, persistence, multi-threading and iterative mathematics.

    I'd really like to take my skills a little bit further and take on a larger or more complicated project but I am fresh out of inspiration.

    Have you got any idea's for an interesting project you would care to share?

    This is a fairly common question, and the answer is always the same- you know better than we do.

    Take one of your other interests, and see if you can write a program about it. What do you enjoy? Or you could take an existing program and improve upon it. We could give you ideas, but they'd be based off our interests, not yours, so I'm not so sure they'd help you.

    Another suggestion would be to keep a close eye on the open source projects at sourceforge. You might find one that interests you that you can contribute with a team of other developers.
