  – Follow these written instructions to get your first program up and running:

  1. https://www.coderscampus.com/java-hello-world/
  2. https://www.coderscampus.com/java-tutorial-java-hello-world-part-ii/

Important things to remember:
– Workspace contains projects
– Projects contain Class files
– a Class file is the blueprint for a Java Object
– Java is Object oriented, everything is an Object
– A Class file’s name is important
  – (note: the filename should start with a capital letter by convention)
