These lessons are going to introduce you to JAVA SE 7 and Netbeans 7.2 and is NOT an introduction to programming class. If you do not have experience with C++ or C#, then you should not take this class! I have placed the demonstration projects and other materials on this page for you. Click on the presentation you want to review. To download a project, click on the item and save your file. Then, unzip it if necessary. I chose to use Netbeans because it is very similar to Visual Studio.
