Comments

You can use multi-line comments or single line comments to note about a piece of code. This helps you so that you don’t forget what was happening in the code

/* Multi Line Comment
I am multiple lines woo!
*/

System.out.println("Hello"); // I am an inline comment

Javadocs

This is a standardized method in Java to describe your functions and classes

/**
 * This is a Javadoc comment. A description of your class should appear here
 * @author Brandon
 * @version 2018
 */
public class Example{
  /** Another Javadoc comment.
   * A description of your program should go here
   */
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    
  }
}

Variables

Convention in Java is for all of your functions/method names to be lowercase.

Class names should be title cased, each word is capitalized ex: IntroExample

Java API

The Java API is publicly accessible and is extremely useful for finding methods in existing classes.

The API documentation for the String class is located here: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/index.html?java/lang/String.html
