Fun with ANT

The ANT architecture is a potential goldmine of project ideas. Topics include:

If you want to write something like a shell (or to a lesser extent, something involving networking) you'll need to learn something about UNIX system calls and related libraries.

Topics include:

Topics include:

Fun with Data Structures and Algorithms

Topics include:
