    Post Small project for my own experience...

    Hello, I'm looking for a project that I can do it for my own improvement of knowledge in java and in return I don't expect anything.

    Try making a simple 2D game would be my advice: games programming isn't as easy as you may think games interact with humans, so you have to have many considerations and break down each logically. For instance, difficulty curve and AI logic: you don't want your game to be too easy (unless it's for young children) or people will get bored of it. Make it too difficult and no one wants to play it. I have some source code (though in C - don't worry about that, C is just another language) for a 'bat and ball' type game that I can share with you: I've already solved some of the logic by making a basic shape bounce around an applet.

    The most important thing is that whatever you start, make sure you finish it. You learn more from finishing a project than anything even if you don't think the outcome is very good. I had this very problem, a game idea that I thought would be really good, and it was on paper and in my imagination. The actual implementation was somewhat more mundane than I had hoped though, but I knew that I had to see it through.

    PM me or something if you're interested.

    Good luck!

    That sounds like good advice Shaun. I have the same intentions as Pad, where I want to get in shape and stay in shape so that I could at some point apply for a job programming. Most job postings seem to be looking for someone who can hit the ground running.
