I want to learn java independently, but there is so much to learn I don't know where to start. Can someone help me decide where I should start and end just enough so I can make my own applications? I also feel that even though I might know what each code does, how do I know my code can produce programs. I have no clue in how program functionality and graphics are made with just numbers and text. Can I learn basic java just through recommended websites?

First, to learning there is only 'start' and no 'end'.

As you have posted your first question here, you are already up on the 'start'. Now, do not 'stop'.

There is difference in reading and studying. You can read news, a newsreader just does that, walks into office, pronounces the text and numbers and walks out. When you 'study' you make opinions, thoughts, debates, assumptions and at times conclusions. Learning is preserving all these and still being able to erase and re-frame them! Good luck.

wow that website is actually very well understandable. Since I don't have a mentor to show me what java can be capable of doing, is there some websites that show java code examples that do stuff? Like chat room code, game code, website codes, any codes that might help me branch on ideas on how I should write stuff up. It is very unknown to me at the moment.
How long does it take to actually start making something along the lines of game apps?

I like that ima think of this as I go along the course. Thanks
