An overview of the popular A* pathfinding algorithm and my experiences coding a visualization in Java swing. This was one of those projects I made a few years back when learning Java, so I pretty much just googled “A* pathfinding for beginners” and ran with that haha. I tried to explain my understanding in the most simple way possible. Bigger projects coming soon.
