Howdy partners!

I absolutely adore the look and theme of this website, so I had to go ahead and join up. If this isn't the right place for an introductory topic, then please let me know. Or if you're a mod, please move it

I have four years of college education in development (spaced out with non-development subjects, so don't think it was all dev!). However, I've always found that I'd like to know a LOT more about Java.

I've spent some time away from full-time development due to work demands, so I'd like to shake up the old grey matter and get my Java on! I remember a lot from college, but I haven't done good, hard development in some time.

In college, I would work on Android apps, SOAP, Rails, etc and it wasn't too difficult. I just have a burning desire to know the Java language inside and out.

I think I basically need some practice to get me started, then anything in the style of college assignments to give me something to stick to. I noticed the "cattle drive", and it looks a lot like it would be perfect for the college-assignment-style work that I'm looking for.

Any help or comments are very much appreciated! I'm looking forward to my time on the Ranch!

Welcome! This forum is appropriate for introductions. (along with other administrative matters)

Ask questions, answer questions, discuss. Seriously, that's a great way to learn.
 
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
