Introduction to programming in Java

Welcome to the Java programming tutorial series. In this tutorial, I will show you how to download the Java SDK and Netbeans IDE so you can begin coding in Java. You will also learn how to write your very first program in Java – a ‘Hello world’ program.

Watch the video below and then scroll down for the links to the Java SDK and Netbeans IDE downloads and to view the sample code for the example shown in the video.

Downloads

All downloads are available for Windows, Mac and Linux

Sample code

Here is the sample Java code for this tutorial. Keep in mind that the project name in the video example was HelloWorld and so the package in the sample code is also called helloworld.

package helloworld;
public class HelloWorld {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Hello world!");
    }
    
}

Getting started with Unity

Welcome to the Unity 3D Game Development tutorial series! Unity is a game engine for building 2D and 3D games that can be played on a range of different platforms including Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and more.

Unity allows you to create game objects and environments and then program your games using the C# (C Sharp) and JavaScript programming languages (you can also code in Boo but it is no longer documented by Unity 5). You can choose which language you would like to use but in these tutorials we will work with C#.

To get started with Unity, watch the video below. Make sure you also check out the Unity FAQ & Tips page to get the most out of Unity. Make sure you also get used to using Unity keyboard shortcuts so that you can work faster in Unity.

You can download the Unity game engine for Mac or Windows here. The Personal Edition is free to use and that is what will be used in these tutorials. When you install Unity, make sure you also include any standard assets, demo projects and files, and MonoDevelop in the installation.

Getting started with Adobe InDesign

This tutorial explains how to prepare your work files and folders, set up your documents and how to modify page layouts and columns. You will also learn how to organise your projects, arrange pages, import images, add text and use some of the drawing and shape tools.

Watch the video below and then try out InDesign for yourself.
