# Getting started

You will need to create a new project and select a console app (remember in college you will need to browser for compiled storage).

When you have a console app, simply copy the code from the '.cs' file and replace all of the code in the console app.

Run your console app, this will create the 'bin' folder with your project folder. Navigate through the 'bin' folder and you should see the files created when the project was compiled, copy the 'txt' files into the same location.
