There were a lot of buttons, but if there isn’t a button for what I want to do then I’m stuck.>>However, there’s a secret language that you can use to make your computer do whatever you want it to do.>>In this course, we teach you that secret language. When you learn it, you will have power over your computer.>>We’ll get you started with the Java programming environment, and you’ll write your first programs.>>You might make a few mistakes. That’s okay. Actually, it’s good, because you learn from your mistakes.>>We’re really excited to teach you the secret language, so that you can make the computer do what you want it to do.
