"Hi, Amigo! Are you making progress?"

"Hello, Professor."

"Everything's great. Today I installed the JDK and IntelliJ IDEA on Diego's advice. Then, on Kim's advice, I downloaded a project and plugin for doing tasks. I'm now trying to sort out how to use it all."

"I'll help you. I believe that I know the best way to teach you how to create applications. Let's create our own project, separate from the project for CodeGym tasks. Seeing once is better than hearing a hundred times. Here's a video for you:"

"Thank you. Let's watch it now."

"And here's one more good link directly to the website of Intellij IDEA's creators."

Creating and starting your first Java application

"Thank you. I'll take a look as soon as I've looked at the first link."

"Of course, step-by-step instructions won't hurt either. First, start IntelliJ IDEA"

Creating a project from scratch

"And what's next?"

"Now let's create the simplest program in IntelliJ IDEA."

Creating a simple program

"What do the strings 'C:\Program…' and 'Process finished with exit code 0' mean?"

"That's housekeeping information from IntelliJ IDEA. The first string contains the command used to run the program. The other string indicates the program's exit code. 0 means the program exited normally."

"Thank you, Professor! Cool lesson!"
