Hello

I am just looking for some ideas as i am studying Computing - Java programming at the minute
and i just wanna practice my skills and improve them, although i do not know any programmes to make?

any ideas would be greatly appreciated
not too complex, as i only have learnt the basics, like classes, loops, assets, etc.
thanks a lot!

Hi,

There is a lot of ideas, and here is mine: A backup program that backups data from local computer to a remote server.

Well, there's any number of games: Mastermind isn't a bad one to try; or Nim, which has a winning strategy. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, you could try Craps, which has a "game within a game" if you allow for both pass/don't-pass and come/don't-come bets.

Why don't you try to make a simple dictionary with file readers or a program to read a URL and capture some data and analyze them...???

I would like to be able to do that but not at that complexity with my understanding of java!
only at A-level standard
but ive completed my Pontoon game which was ok
i haven't learnt about visual interface yet, and i dont think we will for a while, although i would like to, where would i go about finishing this out?

sorry for the very late reply! :L

It is probably more useful to get more practice at the command line before you try GUIs. How about something which enters and seeks information in a database?
