Thank you Campbell for noticing my thread, I am very thankful.

To be honest, I just know little on java, because I became more interested in it when I studied in college, but unfortunately I had to stop studying for some reasons.
I am thinking maybe you could give me a project that I could make and i'll try to figure it out by reading around this forum.

I know some html, web designing, also php when I was younger but maybe I could recall once I see it.
I tweak some pages on my Friendster account back then, that's where I practiced coding.

Sorry I couldn't give you some codes that I know, honestly I have no idea right now. I could remember when I see it. Ill try my best!
Thank you sir for your time!

welcome to the ranch, did you learn how to make a GUI yet? that's an important thing to learn.

make a simple GUI so where you push a button it will display "hello world" onto the GUI. to do this you have 2 options: swing or javaFX. try it both ways.

if you want a bigger challenge, try using FXML and a controller when designing the javaFX gui, and then style it with css to make the text fancy.

if that's all too easy, try making a game? some games are harder to make than others, this lets you pick your own difficulty.

if you need to learn how to do something, look here:

Are you sure that drawing a GUI is the best way to start programming?

There are a lot of ways to learn. Some prefer reading PDF books, some prefer online manual, some prefer video tutorials and some prefer to read a physical book. I suggest picking your best and get started. If you're stuck somewhere, feel free to drop us a question ;)
