    Default increasing my java knowledge

    I am currently in college and taking a data structures class. I feel like the class is moving very slowly and I don't want to wait until the fall semester until I get the next installment of java programming. Does anyone have tips for me to get better creating useful java programs outside of my classes. Any sort of projects, websites or other ways for me to attain java greatness.

    It's not necessarily focused on Java, but if you want to challenge your computer science, problem solving, and math skills, you can take a look at Project Euler.

    Games are always fun to make, too. There are thousands of games out there, pick some that you really like (maybe start out simple and work your way up) and try to make them in Java.

    Trying to help people with their code here is another good method for learning more about Java (::shameless plug:. Debugging is a valuable skill to learn, especially if you're debugging someone else's code.
