The Java programming language is a class-based, object-oriented, and platform-independent language. Follow along with this course and get some hands-on experience with Java programming. Get an environment ready to write Java programs by setting up the IntelliJ IDE. Write what might be your first Java program, where you print out a line of text to the console. While doing so, you'll get familiar with the structure of a Java program as well as the steps involved in running it. Move on to examine the syntax of Java and some of the common sources of errors. Then, get a glimpse into the use of comments to explain your code. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to create your own program in Java.
