May I introduce myself? My name is Jeremy and I'm teaching myself the basics of the language. I'm not a complete beginner, I used to be a GIS/mapping wiz years ago in the FORTRAN type days.

I was the last 10 years an at home Dad. Now I'm retraining.

6 months ago I found this:

http://courses.caveofprogramming.com/

and signed up to learn Java. Every night I follow one of the tutorials, also learning HTML/CSS alongside.

My problem is I'd like to get into a "real" project, ideally with a spatial component, maybe even weather data.

I'm open to develop an Android app, a Java program or a Servlet - perhaps with a database.

I'm no stranger to this type of work - I was a GIS analyst for erm, a big client (won't say who) in the past.

Either small free projects for a charity, or slightly larger research for a modest fee, to gain experience.

Any one any ideas? I'm British living in Bavaria btw.

Welcome to the /ranch

Are there any charities around which require a database? Or football clubs requiring an application? Ask around.

Live in Bavaria. Looking for ideas for a real world project.

Pub finder! Locate the nearest pub. If I can also see customer rating, specialities etc, more utility value.
PS. Instead of the usual beer/apfelwein rating, you can also consider adding a rating on how lovely are the Mädchen who patron the premises.
