Someone has released a Darcula theme for NetBeans.
I don’t use NetBeans myself, but its one of the IDE’s that I’ve been wanting to take a look at in the future as I’m booked on a Java training course that will use it. When I do get to use it, I’ll be using this theme. Darcula much less stressing on the eye when you are coding all day.

…Java Programming: Arrays, Lists, and Structured Data from Duke University on Coursera. I expect to fly through this course.
Along side this I’ve started studying for the OCA Java SE 7 and 8 Programmer exams. I’m using a combination of the official study guides and Enthuware‘s excellent exam simulators. I’m hoping to sit the two in the same month.
