Introducing OO Design and Programming with Special Emphasis on Concrete Examples
Our report consists of six parts. In the first section we give the workshop announcement, in which there are seven predefined questions. We will try to answer these questions throughout the report. The workshop discussion was dominated by the following: Top-down or bottom-up? How much structured programming should we teach (if any) before the first OO course? In sections 2, 3, and 4, the three workshop leaders present their teaching concepts. In section 5 all the presenters make their contribution based on the predefined questions. Everybody gives a pointer to the URL of his/her presented paper. Finally, in section 6 we try to summarize the workshop results. Three of the presenters (Böszörményi, Bergin and Abreu) presented the extreme points-of-view on which the debate mostly concentrated.
