So, I'm helping my friend learn Java, in the hopes that I will move him to libGDX once he gets the syntax and stuff, and then we can collab on my project. I've linked him to some books that helped me, and the new boston tutorials, but I don't really know of that many good basic tutorials. Most of the resources on this forum are for gaming, but I'm looking for java tutorials from the ground up, from the basics (again, for my friend, not me Grin). Online tutorials are probably preferred.

Don't use the new boston tutorials. You learn more about his personal life than java, tbh.

Just search google like crazy. That's where I learned most of what I know (Which still isn't much). Does he have any experience in java or any other languages? I played with a bunch of languages over the years, including C#/XNA, just never got too far into them. Because of this, I really was able to jump right into learning LibGDX which taught me what I needed to know about Java. Also, I have a couple books I reference sometimes. You can get a few books pretty cheap on amazon.

I also think you don't need to use the NewBoston's tutorials, because you can everything he is dealing with in his videos, read in books, too.
I personally prefer reading books, because there is often a greater level of detail.

By the way: NewBostons game programming tutorials are very similiar to this book's content:

It's exactly the same, maybe he mentioned that.

Here's the way I recommend learning: Play around with everything you can freaking play around with. It gives you the fun experience of programming, discovering what works and what doesn't until you can eventually make a great program!  Grin
