Hi everyone Im new to Java and am currently studying Java in the UK. I will be taking the SCP exam towards the end of the year. I'm excited by the language "BUT" at the moment i'm at the stage of trying to piece the whole thing together -guess you remember that feeling- studies are going well. Are there any Java Programmers past and present that would mail me ande exchange language experiences over the coming months.
