Hello all,

I am preparing to retire from my current job after 20 years and am in the process of finishing my BS in Computer Studies as well.

Most of my programming course work has been in Java and I am keen to get involved in a real-world project that will help me improve my skills beyond what university courses offer.

That said, I was wondering if I might get some advice on one or two projects that might be suitable for someone of my experience level to get involved in.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Me too!
I am also looking to start contributing to an open source java project!
An Java XML editor happens to be a topic I am very passionate about.

Thanks,
Bogdan

Hi Dave,
Please check out my open source project I have hosted right here on java.net called exalto. You can access it by visiting http://exalto.dev.java.net. My exalto project is looking for some help right now. In case you are interested in my project, kindly use the link to sign up and I will send more details.

Wow, four months after my post someone responded! Thanks for the offer.

I have submitted a request to join the project.
