Name the project and set parameters for create
Here you can specify a project name and location where it will be stored. In addition you can supply a name for the base robot class. The Package should be something that uniquely identifies your team or organization. The package declaration qualifies all the code in the project so that code could be shared between organizations without conflicts.
After you hit Finish, the project will be created.
