What is Java?

According to their website: "Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!".

Simpler version: Java is a tool used by people who want to create things on the constantly increasing technology world we live in. From creating web tools to making mobile apps, Java is everywhere!

In this class we will cover the basics of beginner level Java programming and help lay a foundation and understanding of what programming is and how you can use it. I hope to add code snippets of current/future classes below to showoff.
