Java Java Objects (Retired) Meet Objects Creating Classes

Will we eventually be getting to the System.out.println() method or will we always use the console.printf()?

Will we eventually stop using the Console class? This may sound picky, but I find using printf() and readLine() somewhat strange as opposed to System.out.print() and the Scanner class which seem to be much more common is most programs.

Thanks.

Many of the later courses use IntelliJ, so they use the more common approaches. I can see the reason you might dislike using the others, but that's probably something you should get used to if you intend on a job in the field. It's pretty common to have to use some library or API that is different than your preferred. :p
