Dota 2 Beginner Heroes: What should newbies try first as starting heroes?

No comments

Every starts out as a noob in Dota 2, and that’s nothing to be ashamed about. You can’t forever stay as a beginner, though, or you will be under a constant barrage of trashtalk and hate from those who think they’ve matured enough and “leveled up” into pro Dota 2 gamers. So, what’s the fastest way to familiarize yourself with the game? It’s simple: learning to play using Dota 2 beginner heroes. Of course, there’s also the in-game tutorial for basic mechanics such as denying, last hitting, and item building. But if you want to directly dive into the multiplayer action, you can do so too. I wouldn’t recommend it, though.

How to create a text editor like Notepad in Java

No comments

I previously posted on how to code using the Java programming language by creating a Tic-Tac-Toe game, complete with basic AI as computer opponent and a two-player mode. This time, let me show you how to code a simple text editor that functions like the Microsoft Notepad for Windows. The source code is contained in one .java file, containing all the necessary lines and class imports needed to launch the functions and graphical user interface. While the code is also shown below, I also made the source code (.java) and the compiled runnable program (.jar) themselves available for download.

In less than two weeks after signing up, I received an email from Blizzard containing a closed beta invitation for its upcoming digital collectible card game called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. To be specific, I got entitled to beta testing “for the Americas,” and will join other testers to help devs polish the game for a gold release based on our feedback.
