Things that will be covered in the first lab:
Contacting your TA for help
How to get a lab account
Downloading and setting up your programming environment
Starting a new program in Eclipse
For the semester, we will be using a program called Eclipse to program Java.
To set up Eclipse at home, you will need to download and install the Java platform, then download and install Eclipse. Instructions can be found here.
Note: Eclipse is already installed on the lab computers- these instructions will allow you to set up Eclipse so that you can work from home.
Later on, we will cover how to set up your UH web site (found here), and how to upload files to your UH web site using SSH (a file transfer program). Instructions for setting up SSH can be found here.
If you miss lab, check the 'Notes from lab' section for any important information, or you can email your TA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
