Java Java Objects Meet Objects Creating Classes

I'm super confused.

What is java's role in coding? Why use system.out.println instead of printf? What is system.out and what does it do? What does this line of code mean: public class Example { public static void main(String[] args) { } } How does the code in this video function, I don't understand. Could someone please respond to this and explain it simply without being wordy and such, and also tell what this code is used for, and how it all ties together because I am not understanding, especially his tying of ideas to objects about state and behavior.

It looks like you have a Techdegree subscription. That still includes access to a Slack channel where you can interact live with staff Success Specialists, right? Don't overlook that resource!

Im still enrolled for some reason but I'm not using it. I'm just looking for someone to explain the basic structure of classes and stuff, and javas relation and role. I learn by starting by a general outline and then breaking down the different parts and components so I'm just looking for a simple explanation without all of the fancy syntax.
