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!
