The workshop[edit]

For beginners and others interested in Java,

There is a permanent Java workshop starting december 2012.

Java is a generalist programming language, widely used by programmers. It allows you to create dynamic websites, applications for your phone (Android), video games, and others.

What happens during the workshop[edit]

There is a short introduction to Java and programming, then you start coding programs of increasing difficulty (at your own pace). Those who are interested in a more specific topic will be helped in their requests.
