Hi fellas,
After many years, I decided to get back into programming. Java was always the language I was most comfortable with, so I got myself a copy of HeadFirst Java and decided to jump into it.

Concurrently I wanted to take problems and try them out(since that's what keeps me most interested). I was thinking of r/dailyprogrammer and topcoder.

Any other suggestions for someone who is rusty and wants to sharpen his skills?

Cheers

I think he's referring to http://www.reddit.com/r/dailyprogrammer and http://topcoder.com

If you really want to bend your brain, try Project Euler.

Project Euler might be a stage 2 for this sort of prep

Are there any online coding dojos that are recommended?
