I took a most atypical approach to building my Java skills after learning the language: building a Swing GUI model that became complex enough to be a game engine, called DIANE - which is an acronym for Drunken Input Atomic Nucleus Engine, so named for its drunkenness simulation mode.

Cool. My path to Java also was far from typical - I've learned Java while working on port of Java 1.4.1 to OS/2.
