Do beginners just start out of curiosity? What principles in life do you use to garner your knowledge and make it a consistent applicable part of your life? I want to SPEAK to like-minded individuals who are also learning Java at its beginning stages. This would be a group of establishing self-imposed goals; persistence and tenacity is key. If you would like to learn more about Java, how to use Gradle, experience how to use the JRE and make advancements in programming abilities, I welcome you to please join this group. I am interested in learning from others. Let's speak Java. Again we would welcome all levels of experience but please keep in mind that others are beginners but any input at all is greatly appreciated. We will meet to discuss, build and understand Java development.
