Hi Carlos,

Those aren't errors - they're just part of the compiler output. Don't worry about them.

Are you expecting output that isn't there, though? If that's all you got, then your code output nothing?


Ah, no. You haven't run your code. You have just compiled it.

To run it as well, type javac Introductions.java && java Introductions

That compiles your code then runs it.
