We'll get started with programming in Java, reviewing stuff you should already know, including:

Java environment installation

We'll be using the NetBeans Java IDE, so when installing Java (if you don't have it already), use the JDK installer that includes NetBeans. We'll only be using an ordinary text editor today.


Review chapters 1 and 2.

For some of the review material, you can also use the shortened online text outline corresponding to Sedgewick & Wanye's Introduction to Programming in Java. See sections 1.1 and 1.2 in the online outline.
