Website will remain available indefinitely!
We have only begun to study Java; www.oracle.com/java/ has vast resources supporting databases, statistics, math, graphics, and more. The Greenfoot.org website is a good place for continued practice with areas for sharing projects and a discussion board; signup is simple.
Other Java learning platforms of note are Alice (http://www.alice.org/ with 3-D graphics!), and Robocode (https://robocode.sourceforge.io/). Processing (https://processing.org/) is a serious platform for generative art.
Online learning resources include:
- Code Academy: free classes in 12 programming languages; paid Pro option
- Code.org and Hour of Code: free with a variety of languages
- Lynda.com is a pay site, but it’s available through many public libraries; it has a wide range of video courses is programming languages and other technical subjects; I use it frequently.
Finally, Open Courseware is a growing movement by universities to put classes and class materials online for free. MIT was a pioneer and still has the most impressive collection I’m aware of (ocw.mit.edu). A class similar in content to what I’ve taught here is at: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-092-introduction-to-programming-in-java-january-iap-2010/
