  1. I’ve done some basic programming (Fortran Back In The Day on Punch Cards… and 2 semesters Java… I could have a whirl at a chapter or two… I’ve dabbled in trying to make educational stuff on computers more than text on a screen. Our intro Java course(s) are pretty amazing and I learned as much about teaching as I did about Java. The teacher would do what I call “conceptual frontloading” — making sure we had all kinds of thinking about what object oriented programming was and what was happening in the memory with addresses… so we were less likely to build the faulty simpler models w/ the entry level assignments.

  2. Hi Susan!

    I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I thought I would receive a notice when someone replied to a message, and hadn't checked back until today.

    Your contributions would be most welcome if you're still interested. The only caution I have is that this is mostly a procedural text. There is a chapter at the end on Object Oriented Programming that needs attention if that's where your interest lies.

    Let me know if you have any questions or would like to join in.

    Thanks!

  3. Hi Dave,

    I’d be happy to be a reviewer for a more conceptual chapter. Last programming was in C++, Objective C but has been a few years so more conceptual chapters would be ideal. Let me know where the content and outlines are so I can become familiar and see where I could assist.

    All the best,

    Una

  4. Hi Una!

    Content is at https://press.rebus.community/programmingfundamentals/ . The C++ you remember should be fine for this effort. Feel free to start with the first chapter and go as far as you are comfortable with.

    Thanks!
