First time I ever thought about picking up Java was in 2007.
Lots of distractions since then and whenever I decide to go for it, I get confused by all the options and books available.

I just bought Deitel Java How to Program, early objects, 11ed

I am a QA/DevOps guy who has been lingering careerwise due to spending too much time on the garbage part of the internet
Wow... Had I spent 10% of the time I wasted online on studying, I would have been a professor by now.
Unfortunately, all I have to account for for 10 years of hard internetting is a few won arguments with internet trolls

So, I hope to spend more time here and use my time on this planet towards more constructive endeavors.

I would like to use Java to help me automate some work stuff, to help me put my foot through the door for new career opportunities and also: I have a few game ideas (they are low-graphics, so Java should be able to carry it).

Would LOVE to help with QA/DevOps stuff and interested in receiving Java-mentoring (like, what to study next, or what is the more professional way of implementing a Java program).

Also, I see the D&D book has no reviews for the 11'th edition. It's quite pricey, so, if you want to consult with me before buying, let me know and I will share info, etc...

Think I should comment on this one.

I also registered many years ago, used to read the site a lot but then just lost touch.

Stumbled across an email in my junk mail today and i'm back involved!!!
