Hi, everyone
This might sound too general, but how does everyone start a project like this? I do not have problem understanding codes already written, and have already read few books covering what I have to know, but trying to create something out of nothing isn't too easy
Any tips or suggestion?
thank you!

First check out our Links and FAQ page.
The decide if you want to start on the project. The project does not have a time limit to be completed by, so you can start today, and learn as you go.
Finally posting here all your questions will really help you along. There are great sources of information here in this forum. You can search on any topic and find the answers.
Good Luck
Mark

If you're doing one of the new assignments, the instructions give you a specific interface to implement for one part of the project. I think this is a good place to start if you aren't sure where to begin, as it gives you some specific tasks to accomplish, and you can do a lot of it without thinking too much about the rest of the assignment. (But be prepared to refactor your code later as your understanding grows.) After you've got a good understanding of that one class, start thinking about how you could attach other things to it. That works for me, at least. Good luck.
