Lesson 1: Lets make our first Java program!

It is customary for all programmers to create a Hello World program as their first program.  We shall honor this tradition and make our very own! Step 1:  Open up your Integrated Development Environment (I will be using JGrasp.) Step 2:  Lets create a class to hold our program!  To do this, lets write the […]

Lesson 3: Understanding our HelloWorld program – Methods

After going over classes and Object-Oriented Programming in Lesson 2, we will look at another important aspect of our code – methods. Nested within the brackets of our class “HelloWorld” (that we created in Lesson 1,) we have our main method: In order to execute our code, we need this main method.  It is worth […]
