Java Coding Class

In our Java coding class, we started with asking everyone what apps and hardware devices they are familiar with. We found that students here use either an iPhone with iOS operating system or an Android (linux like) operating system, as well as PC with Windows or iOS. Chromebooks use a version of the Android operating system. 

Next we learned about basic computer  terms such as hardware, software, output devices like the printer or screen and input devices such as the mouse and keyboard. 

We used a simple website to learn some basic Java terms, its history as well as how to understand a simple Java program.

Students then got to sit down at computers and use the NetBeans integrated development environment to create their programs. We started with programs that just print messages out in text on the screen. Then students learned how to prompt a user in text to enter values and use those values in their programs. Later we learned about JOptionPane where your program can pop up a nice window asking the user to enter the data and show the results. 

We are now learning the if/else and the loop programming tools in Java.

Jerry Mullen Classic

Our Boys Basketball team will travel to Phoenix, AZ this weekend to participate in the Jerry Mullen Classic. The teams we will be competing against will be some of the best in the country. This will be a great opportunity to play in front of college coaches as there will be 70-75 coaches in the building to watch the games throughout the day. This preseason tournament will prepare our guys to get ready for the Grind Session in which we will compete against the top players from across the country!!! This team is poised to have a great season and we look forward to having many of you come out support and us throughout the year!!!!
