- [Voiceover] Hello, my name is Charles Kelly. Eclipse is a platform for building and using digital tools. I'll begin by showing you how to download separate versions of Eclipse that support Java, PHP, C, and C++, and JavaScript. The course proceeds by showing you how to create and run a HelloWorld program that is written in Java. Eclipse is organized into perspectives, editors, and views. The course shows you how you can change in the default organization to suit your preferences and improve your productivity.

Next, we create and debug a simple cryptography example that uses only addition and subtraction to demonstrate features of the Java-Editor. The final chapter explains how to extend Eclipse by using update sites to install new software into Eclipse. I hope that you enjoy this course. Let's begin.
