Hello Family,

I kinda can say that I know some programming basics about Java ( how print out something,arrays,recursion,loops ) and most of that. I roughly know about them though and I feel like expanding my experience with them.However I dont know where to start ? Are there some websites that provide some coding problems about random topics? I would love if you provide me with some useful and resourceful links. I want to get more familiar with compiling errors/debugging/and all that. I appreciate your attempt for help.

Enjoy your holidays,

There are several websites that offer programming challenges. One is HackerRank.com. That seems like a good place to start. If you really like Math, you can try ProjectEuler.net.

Hello,as you have specifically asked for website or online resources so I know I am getting off the track,but in my view nothing substitute a book and fortunately there are many for Java
Start with Headfirst java or something similar, where you will find enough question on a particular topic and can make your concepts stronger too

But if you only prefer online resources, knute had already suggested you some
Have fun learning java

Hi Lama
Programming is practices, practice,practice...Just reading and watching video tutorials would help a lot to understand Java but not to code easily. I would recommend https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-java to help you practice and build up your coding skills or if you are willing to pay try http://www.pearsonmylabandmastering.com/northamerica/myprogramminglab/. For video tutorials i will recommend https://www.udemy.com/java-tutorial/learn/#/ he is very good and it's free.
I would advice that you stay away from challenges for now, because you will get frustrated and give up. You would rather want to build up your skills in programming for now and try some challenges later.

I also like to recommend to you [if you don't like books, paperback books], the use of java tutorials in android apps. It is good and very handy, kind of a quick reference when you're programming and your stuck in the void because of something else, also the AIDE android app is good for java programming basically when you want to figure out some logic if it will work or not, although it won't support GUI if you're an avid GUI programmer in java, but if you're using console then it's good, it also has a tutorial but is limited in free mode, you'll buy the app for its tutorials if you liked it, but what I find interesting in the AIDE application is that I can program java from my phone, [even in a cheap smart phone], so I could always test logics. Otherwise, you can always check stuff in java online tutorials and online courses, also thenewboston videos about java programming is good, but remember that all of that stuff is no substitute for an endless practice in coding in java, reading lots of books in java, and also visiting the oracle website for the latest discussions and trends in java, also you would consider making more programs so that you can practice what have you read on the books, or read on the net, or in the tutorials, just try it out and enjoy. Thanks.

I will consider reading books from now on regarding learning coding in my agenda. Thank you so much !
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
