Hey So over on Youtube someone asked me about doing exponents in Java. I didn’t talk about this in episode 3 of my Java tutorial, so I have created a short supplementary video looking at some of the more advanced mathematical functions in Java. Short, and to the point. Here it is:
This video looks at how we can use the OpenGL graphics library in our Java programs. This video was an entry in a competition on 3dbuzz.com. As such, it doesn’t flow on from the previous videos, just consider it a bonus.
This video gives an overview of the Eclipse IDE. Eclipse is a feature packed Java development environment that is also free and open source. In this video we see how we create projects in eclipse and run our programs. Notes: You can get Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org. It is available for pretty much all platforms. If … Continue reading Java Tutorial 08 – Intro To Eclipse
Our first look at a data structure – arrays. First we talk about what arrays are, then explain how we can use them with loops to do something useful. We also have a look at the String argument to the main method.
Our first look at objects in Java. There is a lot to cover, so in this video we focus on strings, and how we use methods to manipulate them.
This video introduces looping. For, While and Do While loops are covered. Finally, a simple way to do repetitive tasks.
This video looks at control structures. Specifically, if/else blocks and switch blocks. By the end of it you will be able to write programs that make decisions on what to do. UPDATE:I just realised I forgot to include Keyboard.java, which is required for this video. It is now uploaded.
In this video we look at arithmetic operators, enabling us to do some calculations in our programs.
This video introduces you to the primitive datatypes in available in Java. We also look at variables to show how we can store data. Note that this video is 800×600, so hit the full screen button to get more readable detail.
This video walks through the process of installing and setting up the Java development kit. It then introduces you to your first program, the ubiquitous Hello World.
