Need ideas for a final project.

Posted 23 November 2009 - 09:59 AM

Hello everyone!

am currently in an intro computer science course learning java. I have to start working on my final project soon but cannot think of anything to do.

I have learned most of the basic java stuff. I have learned a bit of swing and a bit of animation.

I don't want anything extremely hard but something that will challenge me a little.

Anyone have any ideas???

Hey, I'm taking the same course as you (at a different school most likely), and I'm assuming we're both pretty much on the same page. I would suggest maybe a small tic-tac-toe game? It's the first thing that popped into my head after reading your post.

It wouldn't be too hard, just a thought! Instead of a final project, I just have to take a written final :( I'll never understand why professors think written exams in Computer Science is at all beneficial.

Best of luck!

Kinda sucks that you have to take a written final.

Best of luck!

For an intro course...do you have any swing/gui otherwise course material? If so, something as simple as minesweeper or tic tac to will likely suffice. You know the rules, it's just implementing it in code with a good MVC template. If you need something console based, you could still do tic tac toe easily enough but N-Queens, towers of hanoi, or the cannibals/missionary problem might be more impressive.

EDIT: How about Connect4 or a similar game. Can't remember the name but we programmed a similar game in my intro course that started with a P...

Tic Tac Toe is quiet easy, so is its interface, if you think you can handle it and want something more challenging, try doing chinese checkers!
it's pretty challenging :D
anyway, good luck :)
