It has been about 4 years since I last made a GUI in Java. I have never been that comfortable with them, and Brick Hacks was a good opportunity to practice.
What it does
It's a two-person tic tac toe game. It keeps track of the current player and the score between the two players.
How I built it
I used Java Swing to make the GUI.
Challenges I ran into
I found it difficult to get the labels at the bottom to align in one column.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm somewhat more comfortable with Java Swing than before. I might be able to create a GUI without a template, albeit, still needing to refer to sample code. I also learned how to connect the front end of a program with the back end, something that seemed intimidating before this project.
What I learned
I learned how to create a GUI and connect the front end of a program with the back end.
What's next for TTT
I don't think anything is next for TTT; however, I plan on carrying what I learned from this experience to more complex projects.
