Capitalize Pez?

I'm a little stuck on why you capitalize PezDispenser on line 1 of PezDispenser.java.

In java, you capitalize the first letter of all classes. This is a convention meant to clarify the difference between classes and methods. You can read more about it here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/codeconventions-135099.html

I hope this helps!

It's part of the naming conventions, read this for further info.
